Edit a Credential in a Scan

Required Scan Permissions: Can Configure

To edit a credential in a scan:

  1. Edit a scan.
  2. In the left navigation menu, click Credentials.

    A table of credentials configured for the scan appears.

  3. In the credentials table, click the credential you want to edit.

    The credential settings plane appears.

  4. Do one of the following:
    • For scan-specific credentials, configure the settings for the credential.
    • For managed credentials:
      1. Edit the name or description.
      2. Configure the credential settings.
      3. Configure user permissions for the managed credential.
    • Note: You can only view or edit settings for managed credentials where you have Can Edit permissions.

  5. Click Save to save your changes to the credential.

    If you edited a managed credential, Tenable.io determines whether any other scans use the managed credential and prompts you to confirm the changes.

  7. Click Save to save your scan changes.
