Reports can be considered in two parts: the report definitions, and the results. Using the Reports page, you can create a report and configure its definitions, run existing reports, and view the results of those reports. To access the Reports page, on the top navigation bar, click Reports.
The Reports page includes the following folders:
- The My Reports folder is the default folder that appears when you access the Reports page. Reports that you create will appear in this folder.
- The All Reports folder displays all reports that you have permission to interact with. If you are using an administrator account, then this folder will display all reports that have been created by your organization.
- The All Report Results folder displays all of the results from reports that you have permissions to view. If you are using an administrator account, then this folder will display all results from reports that are created by your organization. Results are displayed in chronological order based on when the reports were run.
The Trash folder displays report definitions (i. e., the reports that appear in the My Reports and All Reports folders) that are deleted. In the Trash folder, you can restore deleted reports or permanently delete them.
Using Tenable.io, you can generate thematic, informative reports to help you find information that might otherwise be overlooked. For example, the Credentialed Scan Failures report delivers a straightforward, organized list of failed credentialed scans that analysts can use to quickly address scanning issues, making it simpler to troubleshoot problems with credentialed scans. This documentation includes a complete list of report templates included with Tenable.io.
Reports can be run on demand or scheduled to run periodically, providing a regular view of the state of various facets of your assets. Additionally, you can specify individuals and groups that have access to the reports. Permissions range between a user being limited to viewing report results to a user being able to fully configure and run that report. For more information about scheduling, permissions, and other information regarding configuring reports, see Report Settings.
If this is your first time using the Reports feature, see the Reports Workflow, which provides a basic explanation of the steps you can take to start leveraging reports.
