Delete Assets

Required Tenable Vulnerability Management User Role: Scan Operator, Standard, Scan Manager, or Administrator

You can delete Host and Web Application assets from the Assets page, the Asset Detail page, or the Vulnerability by Asset page.

When you delete an asset, Tenable Vulnerability Management deletes the asset from the default view of the assets table, deletes vulnerability data associated with the asset, and stops matching scan results to the asset.

If the asset is an Explore asset, then Tenable Vulnerability Management removes the asset from your asset count within 24 hours. All other assets remain on your license count until 90 days after Tenable Vulnerability Management last sees the asset in a scan.

Note: If an asset is part of a network with an Asset Age Out setting, this setting overrides these default settings. For more information, see View or Edit a Network.

Tenable Vulnerability Management returns deleted assets with the Asset ID filter on the Assets workbench, but only with that filter. Deleted assets have no findings.
