An administrator in Nessus Manager or Nessus Professional (with legacy features) can perform this procedure. Multiple users are not available in Nessus Professional 7.0 and later.

    The About page appears.

  2. In the left navigation bar, click Users.

    The Users page appears.

  3. In the users table, click the user whose account you want to modify.

    The <Username> page appears, where <Username> is the name of the selected user.

  4. Modify the user's name, email, role, or password as needed.

    Note: You cannot modify a username after you create the account.

    Note: Passwords cannot contain Unicode characters.

  5. Click Save.

    Nessus saves your account settings.
