Deploy Tenable Core in Microsoft Azure via the Portal

It is typically simplest to create and configure Tenable Core + Tenable.io Web Application Scanning 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:

  • Confirm your environment will support your intended use of the instance, as described in   System Requirements.
  • Confirm your internet and port access will support your intended use of the instance, as described in Access Requirements.

To deploy a Tenable Core + Tenable.io Web Application Scanning 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 WAS template.

  3. Configure all desired options.

    Note: If you want Tenable Core + Tenable.io Web Application Scanning  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 WAS to tenable.io - - /usr/libexec/tenablecore/was_rest_client.py - "--set-link" - "--scanner-name" - <The name of your scanner as you want it to appear in Tenable.io> - "--linkkey" - <Your Tenable.io linking key> - "--iohost" - "https://cloud.tenable.com"
  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 + Tenable.io Web Application Scanning, as described in Get Started.
