Move Assets to a Network

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

When a scanner scans assets, the scanner automatically adds the network to which it belongs to the scanned assets' identifying details. However, if you want to change the network assets are assigned to, you can also manually move assets to a network.

Note: Move assets to a new network before you run scans on the new network. If you move assets to a network where scans have already run, Tenable.io may create duplicate asset records that count against your license.

  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, Nessus Scanners is selected in the left navigation menu and the Cloud Scanners tab is active.

  4. Click the Networks tab.
