Organize Scans by Folder

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

Required Tenable.io Web Application Scanning User Role: Basic, Scan Operator, Standard, Scan Manager, or Administrator

In Tenable.io, the Scans page contains a Folders section that automatically groups your configured and imported scans into default folders. To further organize your scans, you can create custom folders.

To organize your scans by folder:

  1. View scans in default folders.

    Note: You cannot rename or delete the default folders.

    By default, Tenable.io provides the following folders:

    Folder Description
    My Scans

    Contains scans that you have created or imported.

    This folder appears by default when you access the Scans page.

    All Scans
    • (Administrators) Contains scans created by any users.
    • (All other users) Contains:

      • Scans that you have created
      • Any shared scans for which you have Can View permissions or higher
    Remediation Scans Contains any remediation scans you own or that another user has shared with you.
    Trash

    Contains scans that you have moved to the trash. If you have Can Configure permissions for a scan in this folder, you can permanently delete the scan for all users.

    If you delete a custom folder that contains scans, Tenable.io automatically moves any scans in the deleted folder to the Trash folder.

    Tenable.io automatically deletes Vulnerability Management scans stored in the Trash folder for longer than 30 days.

  2. (Optional) Manage custom folders:

    Note: The custom folders you create appear only to you and cannot be shared with other users.

  3. Move a scan to the appropriate folder.

    From a default folder, you can move a scan to one of the following folders:

    • The My Scans default folder
    • A custom scan folder

    From a custom folder, you can move a scan to one of the following folders:

    • The My Scans default folder
    • A different custom folder

    Note: You cannot move scans to or from the Remediation Scans folder.
