Issue severity

Issues can be classified as they appear in the Issues grid of an application.

Issue severity values

Issues are assigned a severity level automatically, and this is used in calculating the Risk rating for an application. Levels are:
  • Critical
  • High
  • Medium
  • Low
  • Informational
Administrators, Managers, users with the permission "Update issue severity" can reassign any value to any issue.

Edit issue severity

Select one or more issues in a list to edit their severity together.
  • Select all the issues you want to change, and click Edit severity.

    Add a comment to be included with all the edited issues. Optional.

    Note: Changes to issue severity do not affect the value shown in the scan record, which always retains the severity values at the time the scan was run.
