install Working !!! Tested all lab machines and all installs are working

Thanks MattWoelk

Without the package maintainers, arch wouldn't be as great as it is

I have added the script now.
It works perfectly; the convenience cannot be paralleled.
Thanks to vendforce for the script.
(Apologies for the delay; it's been that kind of week.)
Please give it a test to make sure it works for you, and let me know if you have any problems.

Is there a reason you have'nt add the script ? .
I've installed arch on some lab machines and I went to install nessus on the machines and its still requires you to download the files.
While Im sure you are busy etc please just add the script , its such a pain in the arse having to download the file to install nessus ,
as I said before an aur package is pointless if you have to download the file manually the whole point of the aur is efficiency and automating the install of programs for the arch community
Or if your too busy and have other projects which is understandable and dont have the time to maintain this, please hand over the maintaining to someone thanks

This sounds wonderful!
I'll look into including your changes in the next few days, when I'm in the right place to test it.
Thanks so much!

I'll create a bash script to download the file

Dear vendforce,

The url is in the pkgbuild, copied here for your convenience: http://www.tenable.com/products/nessus/select-your-operating-system

Having to manually download it has been bugging me for a while too. I'll look again for a way to make the process simpler, though I'm not sure if the website will allow it.

vendforce commented on 2016-03-16 19:54

Can you please add the url to download the file in the pkgbuild ,
whats the point of this package build when you have to download it from the website and place it in the directory
people might as well go to the website and download the rpm file extract it and move the folder to /opt and the nessusd service file to /lib/systemd/system

this package build is incomplete please fix it

How do you guys update the plugins?

When I use the nessuscli tool to update plugins, it connects to a wrong domain.
It should be nessus.org as [url="http://static.tenable.com/documentation/nessus_v6_command_line_reference.pdf"]the official document[/url] shows.
sudo nessuscli update --plugins-only
