Note: This section describes creating and maintaining managed credentials. For more information about scan-specific or policy-specific credentials, see Credentials in Tenable Vulnerability Management Scans or Credentials in Tenable Web App Scanning Scans.

Managed credentials allow you to store credential settings centrally in a credential manager. You can then add those credential settings to multiple scan configurations instead of configuring credential settings for each individual scan.

You and users to whom you grant permissions can use managed credentials in scans. Credential user permissions control which users can use and edit managed credentials.
