Required Scan Permissions: Can View

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.

You can view configured and imported scans. If you have appropriate permissions, you can also perform actions to manage the scans.
