In Tenable.io, you can create a user-defined scan template. A scan template is a set of predefined configuration options related to performing a scan. The term for the user-defined scan template is "policy" in the classic user interface and "scan template" in the new user interface. After you create a user-defined scan template, you can select it as a template when you create a scan.

Use the API to perform CRUD operations on user-defined scan template objects, and also copy, import, and export user-defined scan templates.
