Disable a User Account

Required User Role: Administrator

Disabling a user account prevents the user from logging in and prevents their scans from running. You can enable a disabled user account as described in Enable a User Account.

Important: Disabling a user account does not disable scheduled reports for that user. Additionally, if the disabled user shared a report with other users, these other users can still generate that report. For more information, see Reports.

To disable a user account:

  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 Access Control tile.

    The Access Control page appears. On this page, you can control user and group access to resources in your Tenable Vulnerability Management account.

  4. Select the user or users you want to disable:

  5. In the confirmation window, click Disable.

    A success message appears.

    Tenable Vulnerability Management disables the selected user or users. In the users table, a disabled user appears in light gray.

    Note: If the user you disable has a session in progress, they may continue to have limited access. However, once they log out, they cannot log back in.
