Duplicate a Role

Required User Role: Administrator

You can create a custom role by duplicating any existing custom role and then modifying the new role configurations as desired.

Note: You cannot duplicate Tenable-provided roles.

To create a custom role via duplication:

  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. Click the Roles tab.

    The Roles page appears. This page contains a table that lists all the user roles available on your Tenable Vulnerability Management instance.

  5. In the roles table, select the check box next to the role you want to duplicate.

    The action bar appears at the top of the table.

  6. In the action bar, click More More.

    A menu appears.

  7. Click Duplicate.

    A copy of the role appears in the table, with the prefix Copy of [role name].

  8. Click the duplicated role.

    The Roles Details page appears. The name, description, and selected privileges for the duplicate role are copied from the original role.

  9. Update one or more of the following configurations:

    • Name — In the Name box, type a new name for the role.

    • Description — In the Description box, type a description for the role.

    • Privileges — Under each Tenable Vulnerability Management area, select or deselect the check box next to each privilege you want to add to or remove from the role.

  10. Click Save.

    Tenable Vulnerability Management saves your changes to the duplicate role.
