Modifying findings

Modified findings are findings that have changed vulnerability types, classifications, or severities - or that have annotations. The Modified Findings view displays these findings for the current application (the application that is active as a result of opening an assessment for it). In the My Assessments view (available only in AppScan® Source for Analysis), the Modified column indicates if a finding has changed in the current assessment.

Modifications to findings are immediate and cause metrics to update. Modifications are stored with applications - and are applied to their future scans.

Findings can be modified in the Finding Detail view or from any view with a findings table. The Finding Detail view allows modification of individual findings, or you can modify multiple findings in a findings table.

Note: You must have Save Assessments permission to save changes after modifying an assessment.
