Deploy Tenable Core in Microsoft Azure via the Portal

It is typically simplest to create and configure Tenable Core + Nessus using the Microsoft Azure portal.

In some cases, you may prefer to use the Microsoft Azure command line interface (CLI) to deploy Tenable Core in Azure, as described in Deploy Tenable Core in Microsoft Azure via the CLI.

Before you begin:

To deploy a Tenable Core + Nessus VM via the Azure portal:

  1. Log in to the Microsoft Azure portal. For more information, see the Microsoft Azure Documentation.
  2. Create a new resource by searching for the TenableCore Nessus template.

  3. Configure all desired options.

    Note: If you want Tenable Core + Nessus  to automatically link to Tenable.io on first boot, enter the following in the advanced settings using the custom data box:

    #cloud-config runcmd: # Link Nessus to tenable.io - - /opt/nessus/sbin/nessuscli - managed - link - "--key=<Your Tenable.io linking key>" - "--cloud"
  4. Start the VM deployment.

    Azure begins the VM deployment. Azure displays a success message when finished.

What to do next:

  • Continue getting started with Tenable Core + Nessus, as described in Get Started.
