Switch to a Linked User Account

Required User Role: Administrator with linked user accounts or a Security Manager linked to an Administrator. For more information, see User Roles and Linked User Accounts.

Linked users can switch from the linked Administrator to a linked Security Manager, from one linked Security Manager to another, or from a linked Security Manager to the linked Administrator user. For more information about linked user accounts, see Linked User Accounts.

Before you begin:

To switch to a linked user account:

  1. Log in to Tenable.sc via the user interface.

  2. Note: You must log into the Administrator user associated to the linked Security Manager, then switch between linked users. Linked Security Managers cannot log in to Tenable.sc directly.

  3. Click Username > Switch User.

    The Switch To Linked Account window appears.

  4. Click the name of the linked user you want to switch to.
  5. Click Switch.

    Tenable.sc logs you in as the selected user.

    The username menu updates to show the linked account name and associated organization.
