Edit Tenable Web App Scanning Scan Settings

Required Additional License: Tenable Web App Scanning

Required Tenable Web App Scanning User Role: Scan Manager or Administrator

Required Scan Permissions: Can Configure

Note: This topic describes how to configure scan settings in the new interface only. If you activate the new interface, you can view a snapshot of your historical scan configurations in the classic interface, but you cannot modify configurations for scans run using any scan template other than the PCI WAS Scan template from the classic interface.

The settings you can configure in a Tenable Web App Scanning scan or user-defined scan template depend on the Tenable-provided scan template type. For more information, see Scan Templates.

To configure scan settings in the new interface:

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

    The left navigation plane appears.

  2. In the left navigation plane, in the Web App Scanning section, click Scans.

    The Web Application Scanning Scans page appears.

    Note: If your Tenable Web App Scanning license expires, your web application scans no longer appear in the scans table.

  3. In the scans table, roll over the scan you want to configure.

    The action buttons appear in the row.

  4. Click the pencil button.

    The Update a Scan page appears.

  5. Modify the scan settings.
  6. (Optional) In the Advanced Settings section, add Session Settings.

    Note: Specifying this token speeds up the scan by allowing the scanner to skip token verification. Only available while you are editing an existing scan. For more information, see Advanced Settings.

  7. Click Save.

    Tenable Vulnerability Management saves the scan settings.
