External Repositories

When adding an external repository, you access a local repository from another Tenable.sc:

  • Offline repositories allow you to share repository data from one Tenable.sc deployment to your primary Tenable.sc deployment via manual export and import (a .tar.gz archive file). You can combine data from several repository files into a single offline repository by importing multiple files to the offline repository.

  • Remote repositories allow you to share repository data from one Tenable.sc deployment to your primary Tenable.sc deployment via an SSH session.

External repository data is static and used solely for reporting purposes. For more information, see Offline Repository Options and Remote Repositories.
