Create a New Agent Group

You can use agent groups to organize and manage the agents linked to your account. You can add an agent to more than one group, and configure scans to use these groups as targets.

Use this procedure to create an agent group in Nessus Manager.

To create a new agent group:

  1. In the top navigation bar, click Scans.

    The My Scans page appears.

  2. In the left navigation bar, click Agents.

    The Agents page appears.

  3. Click the Groups tab.
  4. In the upper right corner, click the New Group button.

    The New Agent Group window appears.

  5. In the Name box, type a name for the new agent group.
  6. (Optional) Add agents to the group:
    1. Click the Add Members toggle.

      A list of linked agents appears.

    2. Click each agent you want to add to the group.

  7. Click Save.

    The manager adds the agent group and it appears in the table.

What to do next:

  • Configure user permissions for the agent group.
  • Use the agent group in an agent scan configuration.
