In the Tenable.io user interface, "workbenches" are default dashboards that, unlike user-defined dashboards, cannot be customized. Workbenches provide you with an overview of actionable insights into assets and vulnerability management, which you can then use to prioritize vulnerabilities and manage assets and scan coverage in your organization's network. The workbenches API provides extended capabilities for retrieving asset and vulnerability data from the workbenches. Tenable.io’s new interface refers only to "dashboards" while offering similar feature parity to workbenches.

Note: The Workbenches API is not intended for large or frequent exports of vulnerability and assets data. If you experience errors, reduce the volume, rate, or concurrency of your requests or narrow your filters. Contact support if you continue to experience errors. Additionally, Tenable recommends the POST /vulns/export endpoint for large or frequent exports of vulnerability data, and the POST /assets/export endpoint for large or frequent exports of assets data.
