Scanning source code and managing assessments

This section explains how to scan your source code and manage assessments.

Once you configure applications and projects - or use the Application Discovery Assistant to create applications and projects for you - you are ready to scan the source code. The result of a scan, an assessment, can be saved or published. A saved assessment is a file of scan results saved locally that can be published, opened later for additional triage, or opened in AppScan® Source for Development. A published assessment consists of the scan results saved to the AppScan Enterprise Server.

You manage assessments in two views:

  • My Assessments
  • Published Assessments
Note: When saving, publishing, or opening an assessment, progress appears in the status bar.
