The Downloads API allows you to access and download installation and update files for available Tenable products. You can use the API endpoints to list product pages, list downloads available for a specific product, and to download a file. The endpoints can also be used to determine and download the latest version of a file to facilitate the automation of an installation.
The Tenable Downloads API uses a different server URL than the Tenable.io API:
Like the Downloads website, certain files require authentication to download. When files have a
"requires_auth": true attribute on the product list page, the Downloads API uses bearer token authentication and requires a valid token in the Authorization header to download the file:
Authorization: Bearer AbCdEf123456
To access or reset your authentication token, navigate to the Authentication Token page.
Examples of product downloads that do not require authentication include Nessus and Nessus Agents.
