Tenable.io Platform Release Notes - August 2021

Important Highlights from this Release


  • You can now edit some Nessus Agent settings on the Agents Settings page. You can set log levels, performance levels, update plans, and hostname updates for one or more agents at a time. The settings are applied the next time the Agent checks in with Tenable.io.

    For more information, see Manage an Agent's Settings in the Tenable.io User Guide.

  • When you export an Agents list on the Agents Settings page, you can now select agents to export. If you do not select any Agents, Tenable.io will export all Agents by default. The Classic interface can only export all Agent records.

    For more information, see Export Agents in the Tenable.io User Guide.

  • When you link a Nessus Agent, it creates an asset record in Tenable.io prior to the first scan. The asset record includes operating system information, network information, and the Tenable UUID.

    For more information, see Linked Scanners in the Tenable.io User Guide.

  • Dashboards - Previously, when you searched for a Dashboard or Widget in your Library, Tenable.io only searched for matching text in the title. By customer request, Tenable.io now searches for matching text in the title and description, making the search more relevant, reliable, and usable.

    For more information, see Dashboards in the Tenable.io User Guide.

  • Splunk - Added support for fedcloud.tenable.com and improved CIM parsing, per Splunk's recommendations.

  • The Notifications panel is a convenient place to view and manage all your in-session ephemeral system notifications. To see your notifications, in the upper-right corner, click the bell button.

    For more information, see View Notifications in the Tenable.io User Guide.
