Create an Initial Administrator User Account

The first time you access Tenable Core + Tenable.sc, you log in as a wizard user.

Then, you create an initial administrator account.

Tip: If you delay creating an initial administrator account, after a few minutes, the system locks you out of the wizard user account. You will need to reboot Tenable Core to proceed with the initial administrator account creation.

Before you begin:

To create an initial administrator user account:

  1. Navigate to the URL for your Tenable Core VM.

    The login page appears.

  2. In the User name field, type wizard.
  3. In the Password field, type admin.
  4. Click Log In.

    The Create New Administrator window appears.

  5. In the Username field, type the username you want to use for your administrator account.
  6. In the Password field, type a new password for your administrator account.

  7. Click Create Account.

    A confirmation window appears.

  8. Click Finish Setup.

    Tenable Core creates your user account.

  9. Click Log Out.

    Tenable Core logs you out.

What to do next:

  • (Optional) If you want to log in again, see Log In to Tenable Core.
  • (Optional) If you want to create another user account, see Create New User Account.

    Note: You must log back in again before you can create a new user account.
