Copy a Scan Configuration

Required Tenable.io Vulnerability Management User Role: Standard, Scan Manager, or Administrator

Required Scan Permissions: Owner

When you copy a scan configuration, Tenable.io assigns you owner permissions for the copy and assigns the copy scan permissions from the original scan.

Note: You cannot copy a scan from the Remediation Scans folder.

To copy a scan configuration in the new interface:

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

    The left navigation plane appears.

  2. Do one of the following:

    • In the left navigation plane, in the Vulnerability Management section, click Scans.

      The Scans page appears.

    • In the left navigation plane, in the Web App Scanning section, click Scans.

      The Web Application Scanning Scans page appears.

      Note: If your Tenable.io Web Application Scanning license expires, your web application scans no longer appear in the scans table.

  3. In the Folders section, click a folder to load the scans you want to view.

    The scans table updates to display the scans in the folder you selected.

  4. In the scans table, roll over the scan you want to copy.

    The action buttons appear in the row.

    Tip: If 5 or more actions are possible, the button appears in the row. For more information, see Navigate a Table.

  5. In the row, click the More button.

    A drop-down box of options appears.

  6. Click Copy.

    The Copy to Folder plane appears, which contains a list of your scan folders.

  7. Click the folder where you want to save the copy.

  8. Click Copy.

    Tenable.io creates a copy of the scan with Copy of prepended to the name and assigns you owner permissions for the copy. The copy appears in the scans table of the folder you selected.
