Upload Scan Results

In addition, you can upload Nessus 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.

To upload files greater than 300 MB, 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 as an organizational user with appropriate permissions. For more information, see User Roles.

  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.
  7. Click Submit.
