Search (Classic Interface)

Required User Role: Basic, Scan Operator, Standard, Scan Manager, or Administrator

On the top navigation bar, a search box appears on most pages in Tenable.io. The search box is contextual, and provides different results based on the page currently in view. For example, on the Vulnerabilities dashboard, you can use the search box to filter the table of plugins that appears at the bottom of the page. If a page does not support searching, the search box does not appear on the top navigation bar.

Additionally, some pages support advanced searching.

To access the advanced search options:

  1. On the top navigation bar, click the Advanced link.

    The Advanced Search window appears.

The exact options available on the Advanced Search window vary based on the page currently in view. Generally, advanced searching allows you to filter the information on the page based on factors that you specify. If a page does not support advanced searching, the Advanced link does not appear on the top navigation bar.
