Required Tenable Vulnerability Management User Role: Scan Manager or Administrator

To view or edit the configuration of an existing network:

  1. In the upper-left corner, click the Menu button.

    The left navigation plane appears.

  2. In the left navigation plane, click Settings.

    The Settings page appears.

  3. Click the Sensors tile.

    The Sensors page appears. By default, the Nessus Scanners tab is active and Linked Scanners is selected in the drop-down box.

  4. Click the Networks tab.

    The list of networks appears.

  5. In the Networks table, click the network to edit.

    The Network Details page appears with the Settings tab active.

  6. Make changes to your network details:

    1. Edit the network Name or Description. The name can contain any alphanumeric and special characters except < and >.
    2. Turn on Asset Age Out to permanently delete network assets that have not been seen on a scan for a specific number of days.
    3. In the text box that appears, type the number of days. The minimum value is 14 and the maximum value is 450.

      Caution: When you enable and save this option, Tenable Vulnerability Management immediately deletes assets. All asset records and associated vulnerabilities are deleted and cannot be recovered. The deleted assets no longer count towards your license.

      Note: You cannot age out assets which are older than 15 months (456 days). To delete these assets, filter for them on the Assets workbench and then delete them manually. For more information, see Delete Assets.

  7. Click Save.

    Tenable Vulnerability Management saves your changes.
