The Tenable.io Vulnerability Management API now offers users the ability to hard delete assets when deleting assets in bulk. The hard deletion of an asset completely removes the asset from your licensed asset count along with all related data.
You can hard delete assets using the new
hard_delete body parameter with a value of
true with the POST /api/v2/assets/bulk-jobs/delete endpoint. If the parameter is omitted, the default value of
false is used and the asset will still count against your license until the asset ages out.
This update applies to the following endpoints:
|POST /api/v2/assets/bulk-jobs/delete||Bulk delete assets||Deletes the specified assets. This request creates an asynchronous delete job in Tenable.io.|
