Update Management

You can review information about your scheduled automatic updates, navigate to the Services page to disable or enable automatic update settings, change the automatic update schedule, or configure a proxy server you do not have internet access.

Note: You can also make updates without internet access. Refer to Update Tenable Core Offline for more information.

Note: Additional updates are needed for systems using On-prem. For more information, see Manage Updates in the On-prem User Guide.

From the Updates Management page, do one or more of the following:

Disable or Enable Automatic Updates

  1. In the AUTOMATIC UPDATES: section, click the Here link in "Scheduled updates can be configured Here."
    The Services page opens.

Change Automatic Update Schedule

    Note: If both Day of week and Day of month are selected, the system only performs updates on days when those two items coincide (e.g., if Wednesday is selected for Day of week and 8 is selected for Day of month, the system only updates on Wednesdays that fall on the 8th).

  3. Click Save.
