Delete a User
Required User Role: Administrator or organizational user with appropriate permissions. For more information, see User Roles.
If you want to migrate a user's objects, you must use a Security Manager account in the user's organization to delete the user. Other roles cannot migrate user objects.
Note: If you want to delete an administrator user with linked user accounts, you must delete the linked accounts associated with the administrator before deleting the administrator, as described in Delete a Linked User Account. For more information about linked user accounts, see Linked User Accounts.
Note: If you want to delete a Tenable.sc user that was created via user provisioning, delete the user from your SAML identity provider. If you delete a user in Tenable.sc that was created via user provisioning without deleting the user in your SAML identity provider, Tenable.sc automatically re-creates the user in Tenable.sc the next time they log in using your SAML identity provider. For more information, see SAML User Provisioning.
To delete a user:
Log in to Tenable.sc via the user interface.
Click Users > Users.
The Users page appears.
In the row for the user you want to delete, click the menu.
The actions menu appears.
A confirmation window appears.
(Optional) If you want to migrate the user's objects, click the toggle to migrate the user's objects to another user. Tenable.sc supports migrating:
- Active scans, agent scans, and scan results
- Custom assets, credentials, audit files, and scan policies
- Blackout windows
- Tickets and alerts
- Reports, report images, report attributes, and report results
If you do not migrate the user's objects, Tenable.sc deletes the user's objects.
Note: You cannot migrate objects when deleting an Administrator user because all Administrator-created objects are shared across Tenable.sc and remain accessible after user deletion.
Tenable.sc deletes the user.
