AssetsAn array of asset objects with vulnerabilities information. A valid asset record requires at least one valid network_interface object.

Note: supports a maximum of 50 individual asset objects per request message. In addition, because supports a total size limit of 15 MB for the request message, you may want to limit the number of asset objects you include in an individual request, depending on the number of vulnerabilities identified on the assets and the size of the related vulnerability output.

Note: This endpoint does not support the network_id attribute in asset objects for import. automatically assigns imported assets to the default network object. For more information about network objects, see Manage Networks.
Source IDA unique string value used to track the set of assets and vulnerabilities that is importing and processing. For data imported from via Lumin synchronization, this value has the following format:

where scan_uuid is the unique identifier for the scan in (equivalent to the scan id used in API requests), and scan_chunk_uuid is the unique identifer that assigns to individual chunks of scan data during the Lumin synchronization process.
Vulnerabilities Coverage IDsA string or range of IDs that each represents a check that the scan used to detect vulnerabilities you are importing. This parameter supports Tenable plugin checks only. For more information, see Plugins.
