Manage Scans

You can use the Tenable Vulnerability Management API to create, configure, and manage scans and agent scans.

For basic scan configuration information, see:

For more advanced scan configuration information, see:

The following pages provide request body examples for various scan configuration and scan management scenarios.



To check the status of a scan, use the GET /scans/{scan_id}/latest-status endpoint, instead of the GET /scans/{scan_id} endpoint. Tenable recommends the GET /scans/{scan_id}/latest-status endpoint especially if you are programmatically checking the status of large numbers of scans.
