Import a Policy

You can export a Tenable Nessus policy as a .nessus file and import it in a different Tenable Nessus installation. You can then view and modify the configuration settings for the imported policy. You cannot import a Nessus DB file as a policy.

You can also import individual scans and Tenable Nessus DB files. For more information, see Import a Scan.

To import a policy:

  1. In the top navigation bar, click Scans.

    The My Scans page appears.

  2. In the left navigation bar, click Policies.

    The Policies page appears.

  3. In the upper-right corner, click Import.

    Your browser's file manager window appears.

  4. Browse to and select the scan file that you want to import.

    Note: The supported file type is an exported Nessus (.nessus) file.

    Tenable Nessus imports the file as a policy.

  5. (Optional) Modify the imported policy's settings as needed.
