View Scan Details

Required Scan Permissions: Can View

You can view scan results for scans you own and scans that were shared with you. Consider the following when viewing scan results:

  • You can view details for an individual scan based on the permissions configured for the scan. However, when you view aggregated scan results in dashboards and other analysis views (for example, the Vulnerabilities or Assets tables), your access is based on the access groups you belong to.

  • Tenable Vulnerability Management defines Archived as any individual scan results that are older than 35 days. For scan results that are younger than 35 days, you can view and export the results in Tenable Vulnerability Management. For archived scan results, you can export the results, but cannot view them in Tenable Vulnerability Management. This limitation applies to both imported scan results and scan results that Tenable Vulnerability Management collects directly from scanners. After 15 months, Tenable Vulnerability Management removes the scan data entirely.

  • When you view results from the latest run of the scan, Tenable Vulnerability Management categorizes the scan as Read. The Read status is specific to your user account only. You can also manually change the read status.

  • Tenable Vulnerability Management retains scan data for 15 months. If you want to store scan data for longer than 15 months, you can export the scan data for storage outside of Tenable Vulnerability Management.
