Users

Note: This section describes the new Tenable.io interface. For information about the classic interface, see Users (Classic Interface). For information about navigating the new interface, see Navigate Tenable.io (New Interface).

User accounts enable you to provide access to Tenable.io and manage permissions for Tenable.io resources. Only administrators can create and manage user accounts.

Note: For an example of how user accounts interact with user groups and access groups, see Example: Access Groups.

To access the Users page, click Settings in the left navigation plane, then click the Users tile.

The Users page displays a table of all Tenable.io user accounts. This documentation refers to that table as the users table.

Each row of the users table includes the user name, the dates of the last login and last failed login attempt, the total number of failed attempts, and the role assigned to the account.

To control a user's permissions in Tenable.io, you can assign roles to user accounts. You can change the role of a user account at any time.

You can also disable a user account to prevent a user from accessing Tenable.io. When you disable a user account, Tenable.io retains the user role previously assigned to that user, so the role is available when you enable the account again.
