Switch to a Linked User Account

You can create linked user accounts and linked non-admin user accounts to allow users to switch between accounts without logging out and logging back in to Tenable Security Center.

Linked users can switch from the linked Administrator to a linked Security Manager, from one linked Security Manager to another, or from a linked Security Manager to the linked Administrator user. Linked non-admin users can switch from the linked Security Manager to an SM-Linked user, from one SM-Linked user to another, or from an SM-Linked user to the linked Security Manager. For more information about linked user accounts, see Linked User Accounts.

Before you begin:

To switch to a linked user account:

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

    Note: You must log in to the Administrator or Security Manager account associated with the linked user, then switch between linked users. Linked Security Managers and SM-Linked users cannot log in to Tenable Security Center directly.

  2. Click your user profile icon > Switch User. This option appears only if the current logged-in user already has a linked user account.

    The Switch To Linked Account window appears.

  3. Click the name of the linked user you want to switch to.

  4. Click Switch.

    Tenable Security Center logs you in as the selected user.

    The username menu updates to show the linked user account name and associated organization.
