Deletes the specified asset. When you delete an asset, Tenable.io deletes vulnerability data associated with the asset. Deleting an asset does not immediately subtract the asset from your licensed assets count. Deleted assets continue to be included in the count until they automatically age out as inactive.
Note: This endpoint is not intended for large or frequent exports of vulnerability or 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.
For information and best practices for retrieving vulnerability and assets data from Tenable.io, see Retrieve Vulnerability Data from Tenable.io and Retrieve Asset Data from Tenable.io.
