Note: This topic describes how to configure scan settings in the new interface only. If you activate the new interface, you can view a snapshot of your historical scan configurations in the classic interface, but you cannot modify configurations for scans run using any scan template other than the PCI WAS Scan template from the classic interface. For more information, see Interface Activation Modes in Tenable.io Web Application Scanning.

The settings you can configure in a web application scan or user-defined scan template depend on the Tenable-provided scan template type. For more information, see Scan Templates.

To configure scan settings in the new interface:

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

    The left navigation plane appears.

  2. 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 scans table, roll over the scan you want to configure.

    The action buttons appear in the row.

  4. Click the pencil button.

    The Update a Scan page appears.

  5. Modify the scan settings.
  6. Click Save.

    Tenable.io saves the scan settings.
