Required User Role: Organizational user with appropriate permissions. For more information, see User Roles.

You can upload active or agent scan results from scans performed by other systems. SecurityCenter supports either raw (.nessus) or compressed (.zip) files, with one .nessus file per archive before uploading. This allows you to import scan results from scans run in remote locations without network connectivity to SecurityCenter.

Note: To upload files greater than 300 MB to SecurityCenter, you must modify upload_max_filesize in /opt/sc/support/etc/php.ini to accommodate the larger uploads.

To upload scan results:

  1. Log in to SecurityCenter via the user interface.

  2. Click Scans > Scan Results.
  3. Click Upload Scan Results.
  4. In the Scan File option, click Choose File.

    The file uploads to SecurityCenter.

  5. In the Import Repository drop-down box, select a repository.
  6. Enable or disable the Advanced options: Track hosts which have been issued new IP address, Scan Virtual Hosts, and Immediately remove vulnerabilities from scanned hosts that do not reply.

  7. Click Submit.
