Importing AppScan data to use in reports

An import job takes the results from a data file, and integrates it into the AppScan® Enterprise Server database. Imported data can be used to create reports and dashboards. It can also be combined with data from content scan jobs to create a complete picture of your issues.

Before you begin

Any issues that are duplicated between a content scan job and an import job are merged in your reports; however, identical variants will not be merged, so there might be duplicate variants for issues in the same report.

About this task

User roles: Product Administrator; Job administrator (on the folder)


  1. Go to the Folder Content Summary page and click the Create icon (Create).
  2. On the Create Folder Item page, select an Import Job and give it a Name and Description. Associate it with an Application from the list. Associated jobs appear in the application's Scans view in the Applications tab. Then click Create.
  3. On the What to Import page, select the Import type:
    • AppScan Standard Results Import (XML files exported from AppScan 7.7 or newer)
    • AppScan DE Results Import (SRPT files exported from AppScan DE 7.8 or newer)
    • AppScan Source Results Import (OZASMT files exported from AppScan Source 7.0, 8.0, 8.5, or newer) )
  4. Click Import data file now or Import data file on job run.
  5. On the Data File Upload page, click Browse to find the data file on your network, and click Import.
  6. From the Folder Explorer view, run the job to import the data into the database.
  7. Run the report pack to update it with the results.


By default, a report pack is automatically created when you create an import job. The report pack contains reports that are most common to the type of data you have imported. You must run the report pack after the job to update the data in it.
