Re-importing advanced security test policies

For those times when you must re-import a security test policy file from AppScan® Standard, you can re-import it without affecting your workflow.

About this task

There might be times when you must re-import a security test policy file, including:

  • you've assigned the test policy to users who are currently using it on scan jobs
  • test policy rule versions have updated in AppScan® Standard and you would like to use them in AppScan® Enterprise

To avoid having to reassign security permissions on the test policy, and to avoid affecting jobs that are currently using the security test policy, you can re-import it from AppScan® without affecting your workflow. Otherwise, you must delete the test policy in AppScan® Enterprise and create a new one, compromising any job that references the deleted policy.

  1. Apply updates in AppScan® Standard and then close AppScan® Standard.
  2. Reopen AppScan® and export the test policy as a .policy file.
  3. Re-import the security test policy into AppScan® Enterprise.
