Tenable connector

This connector can be run in the cloud or using an on-premises connector server.

The Tenable connector gathers data about devices and vulnerabilities from Tenable. The connector imports vulnerability data for devices that have been scanned by Tenable within the last 30 days. If the last scan was more than 30 days ago, no vulnerability data is imported.

Before setting up this connector, you must create a token as an administrator in Tenable. For information about doing so, see Generate API Keys in the Tenable documentation. For details explaining why the API used by Ivanti Neurons requires that you have administrator permissions, see Export assets in the Tenable API documentation.

For information about what data is imported and how it is mapped, see Mapping (below).


A Tenable connector has the following options:

  • Connector name: A name for the connector.
  • Connector server name: The name of the connector server that this connector is associated with. When running the connector in the cloud, this server needs to be the Cloud option in the list.

    Each connector can only be associated with one connector server. If you added this connector to a specific connector server (on the Connectors > Connector Servers page), this field will be populated for you. Otherwise, you can select the server from the list.
  • Access key and Secret key. Keys for authentication and access to the data in Tenable.
  • Device threshold: To limit the amount of data that is gathered for Neurons, set a threshold for a specific number of days. The connector will only import devices that have checked in or changed during that time.

  • Repeats: How often the connector should gather data.
  • Start time: The time of day the connector should start running. To minimize the impact on your network and applications, we recommend that connectors generally run at night or on weekends.
  • Active: Whether the connector is active or not. While the connector is active, it runs according to the schedule you create. If you clear the check box, the connector is inactive and will not gather data until the check box is enabled again and the connector is saved.

For details on configuring or using connectors, see Setting up connectors.
