Configure a Local Connector to Import Images

Required User Role: Administrator

To import and analyze images hosted in a local registry, you must configure your registry's connector.

Before you begin:

  • Activate your account and log in to the web portal, as described in Log in to Container Security.
  • Confirm the images you want to import are stored in your organization's container registry.

To configure a connector to a local container registry:

  1. In the Connectors section of the Container Security dashboard, click Import.

    The Select a Connector plane appears.

  2. In the Container Security section, click the name of the type of container registry you want to use. Alternatively, type the name of the registry in the search box.

    Note: If you want to connect to a registry that is not listed, contact Tenable Support to let Tenable know that you want your container registry to be officially supported. If your registry is not listed but is Docker-compatible, select Docker. For information about Docker-compatible connectors, see Docker documentation at

  3. In the URL box, type your registry's URL.
  4. In the Port box, type your registry's port ID.
  5. In the Username box, type your username.
  6. In the Password box, type your password.
  7. Use the Schedule Import toggle to enable or disable scheduled imports.

    Note: By default, requests new and updated asset records every 12 hours.

    If enabled:

    • In the Import text box, type the frequency with which sends data requests to the registry.
    • In the drop-down box, select Minutes, Hours, or Days.
  8. Do one of the following:

    • To save the connector, click Save.

      Note: If you click Save, saves your configured connector but does not import your assets. To launch a manual import for the connector, see Launch a Connector Import Manually in the Vulnerability Management User Guide.

    • To save the connector and import your assets from the registry, click Save & Import.

      Note: There may be a short delay before your assets appear in

  9. (Optional) Click Back to configure another connector.
