Manage Agent Groups

On the Scanners / Agents / Linked page, you can create a new agent group.

Note: Agent group names are case sensitive. When you link agents using System Center Configuration Manager (SCCM) or the command line, you must use the correct case.

Agent groups are used to organize and manage the agents linked to your scanner. Each agent can be added to any number of groups and scans can be configured to use these groups as targets.

Once a new group has been created, you can:

  • Add agents to the group.
  • Manage its agents.
  • Set permissions for the agent group.
  • Rename the agent group.

During the installation of Nessus Agents, you had the option of adding your agent to an existing agent group.

If you did not have any agent groups created prior to the Nessus Agent’s install, or you opted to not add your agent to an existing group, you can create agent groups in the Nessus UI.
