Troubleshooting security test policies

This topic addresses troubleshooting techniques for security test policies.

How do I update the security test policy in AppScan® Enterprise Server that I exported from AppScan®?

You must update the settings in AppScan® and then re-import the policy file into AppScan® Enterprise Server.

There are tests we were using in AppScan® that are not in my security test policy in AppScan® Enterprise Server. Why?

Because AppScan® updates daily, and AppScan® Enterprise Server updates through periodic service packs, there might be times when new rules available in AppScan® will not be executed in AppScan® Enterprise Server. This is because AppScan® Enterprise Server can only run the test rules it knows about, so if there is a rule version difference between the two products, the rules from AppScan® will be saved in AppScan® Enterprise Server's database, and when the versions are equal (perhaps through a service pack), they will be executed.

I can't import a security test policy from AppScan®. Why not?

Check the version of AppScan® you're using; you can only import security test policy files from AppScan® 7.5 or higher.
