Import a Scan

You can import an exported Tenable Nessus (.nessus) or Tenable Nessus DB (.db) scan. With an imported scan, you can view scan results, export new reports for the scan, rename the scan, and update the description. You cannot launch imported scans or update policy settings.

You can also import .nessus files as policies. For more information, see Import a Policy.
