Import a Repository

Required User Role: Administrator

You can import one or more repository files to an offline repository. For more information, see Offline Repositories.

Note: When importing the repository archive, the default maximum file import size is 360MB. This is specified by the post_max_size directive in /opt/sc/support/etc/php.ini. If larger file uploads are required, increase the default value.

Before you begin:

  • Export one or more repository files from your other Tenable Security Center, as described in Export a Repository.
  • Add an offline repository, as described in Add a Repository.

To import an exported repository to an offline repository:

  1. Log in to Tenable Security Center via the user interface.

  2. Click Repositories > Repositories.

    The Repositories page appears.

  3. Right-click the row for the offline repository you created.

    The actions menu appears.


    Select the check box for the offline repository you created.

    The available actions appear at the top of the table.

  4. Click Upload and browse to the file you want to upload.

    Tenable Security Center imports the repository.
