Vulnerability Management: List Plugins in Family (by Name)

A new endpoint has been added to the Tenable Vulnerability Management API to allow customers to retrieve a list of plugins for a specified plugin family name. You can specify the name of the plugin family you want to retrieve the plugin list for via the name body parameter.

The new endpoint is described in the following table:

POST /plugins/families/_byNameList plugins in family (name)Returns the list of plugins for the specified family name.


For example, to retrieve a list of plugins for plugin family Windows : Microsoft Bulletins, you could use the following cURL request:

curl --request POST \
     --url \
     --header 'X-ApiKeys: accessKey=<YOURKEY>;secretKey=<YOURKEY>' \
     --header 'accept: application/json' \
     --header 'content-type: application/json' \
     --data '
  "name": "Windows : Microsoft Bulletins"
