The scan policy contains plugin settings and advanced directives used during the course of the Nessus scan. Scan policies created by the admin user are available to all organizations configured on the SecurityCenter. Click “Scanning” and then “Policies” to display a listing of all currently available policies. Policies created using Nessus may be uploaded with the Upload Policy link under the Options drop-down menu. This will open a window enabling the selection of the policy file and addition of a name, description, and group. Audit files and credentials from the original policy are not exported and copied with the policy file. The “Add” button allows for the creation of a new policy. The gear icon next to existing policies provide the ability to copy, edit, share, view (view details of), export, and delete existing policies.
