Tenable.io: Permissions Change for Asset Endpoints
The user permissions requirement for editing and deleting assets has been reduced from ADMINISTRATOR  to SCAN OPERATOR . For more information about permissions and roles, see Permissions.
Tenable.io: Send Instructions to Multiple Scanners
The Tenable.io API now supports bulk scanner directives. A new endpoint has been added to allow customers to send instructions to multiple scanners. You can use the
all_scanners parameter along with the
directive object to send instructions. Alternatively, you can provide an array of scanner UUIDs in the
scanners parameter to send along with the
directive object to send instructions to a subset of scanners.
Tenable.io: Rollover Scan Parameters
Rollover scan parameters have been added to the Tenable.io scanning API to allow users to launch rollover scans, retrieve rollover history data, and delete rollover history data. When you launch a rollover scan, the scan runs only against targets that Tenable.io did not scan previously due to a scan timeout. Rollover scans allow you to achieve complete scan coverage for all your assets, and you can use the rollover feature to split up large, network-impacting scans.
Tenable.io: Rename Agent
A new endpoint has been added to the Tenable.io API to allow users to rename agents. The endpoint accepts a string body parameter called
name to rename the agent.
Tenable.cs: New csv_format Query Parameter for Cloud Security Violations
A new parameter is now available for the Tenable.cs (Cloud Security) List violations endpoint that allows you to return the violations data in CSV format rather than JSON format. The
csv_format query parameter can be specified with a value of true to return the violations data in CSV format.
The Tenable.io API now supports scheduled exports. The scheduled exports API allows you to asynchronously export assets and findings data from Tenable.io in JSON or CSV format at a specified interval. You can use the API to schedule export jobs, monitor job status, and download the export results.
Scan Time Window
The behavior of the
scan_time_window body parameter has changed. Previously, this parameter only applied to Nessus agent scans. However, this parameter can now be used for Nessus scanner scans to set the time frame, in minutes, after which the scan will automatically stop.
Tenable.cs Cloud Security API v1 Available
Documentation for the Tenable.cs Cloud Security API is now available in the developer portal.
