Rename a Linked Scanner

You can rename your linked scanners from the Sensors menu. This can be helpful for making linked scanners more recognizable to other users.

Note: You cannot rename a cloud scanner. The cloud scanner names are managed by Tenable.

To rename a linked scanner:

  1. In the upper-left corner, click the Menu button.

    The left navigation plane appears.

  2. In the left navigation plane, click Settings.

    The Settings page appears.

  3. Click the Sensors tile.

    The Sensors page appears. By default, the Nessus Scanners tab is active and Linked Scanners is selected in the drop-down box.

  4. Click the row of the scanner you want to rename.

    The scanner Details page appears.

  5. Click the button next to the scanner name.

  6. Edit the scanner name.

  7. Click the button next to the scanner name.

    Tenable.io saves the new scanner name and updates any related tables with the new name.
