Lumin Data Timing

The following feature is not supported in Tenable.io Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program (FedRAMP) environments. For more information, see the FedRAMP Product Offering.

You must run scans to generate vulnerability data for use in Lumin views.

Time to Show Tenable.io Scan Result Data

Vulnerability data generated by Tenable.io scans appears in Lumin views immediately upon scan completion.

Newly generated data does not immediately impact your Lumin metrics (for example, your CES). Tenable requires more time to recalculate your metrics. For more information, see Time to Calculate or Recalculate Your CES, Assessment Maturity, or Remediation Maturity Grade.

Time to Synchronize Data from Tenable.sc

Vulnerability and asset data synchronize differently to Tenable.io.

Data

Synchronization Method

Timing
Vulnerability data
  • Manual initial synchronization.
  • Automatic subsequent synchronizations when new scan result data imports to your synchronized repositories.

After you initiate a synchronization, Tenable.sc immediately begins transferring data to Tenable.io. After 10-15 minutes, data begins appearing in Tenable.io.

Newly transferred data does not immediately impact your Lumin metrics (for example, your CES). Tenable requires up to 48 hours to recalculate your metrics.

All data and recalculated Lumin metrics appear in Tenable.io within 48 hours.

Asset data (tags in Tenable.io)

Manual (on-demand) synchronizations only.

For more information about Tenable.sc synchronization, see Lumin Synchronization in the Tenable.sc User Guide.

Time to Calculate or Recalculate Your CES, Assessment Maturity, or Remediation Maturity Grade

Lumin takes 1-2 hours to calculate or recalculate your metrics after any of the following events:

  • You run your first Tenable.io-configured scans after licensing Lumin.
  • You initiate your first Tenable.sc synchronization after licensing Lumin.
  • Tenable.io runs a scan.
  • Tenable.sc runs a scan that imports new data to a synchronized repository.

Tip: Tenable.io calculates Lumin metrics based on your licensed assets seen in the last 90 days. If you change your scanning configuration (for example, you perform a recommended action to increase your Assessment Maturity grade), your changes influence the next scheduled recalculation, but take more time over the next 90 days to impact significantly and overhaul your metrics.
