The scope of exclusions

Exclusions apply to all applications (global), individual applications, or projects.

  • Global exclusions apply to all scans.
  • Application exclusions only apply to a scan run against a specific application and its corresponding projects.
  • Project exclusions apply to findings that exist in a specific project.
Note: Exclusions affect assessment metrics, including total findings (findings that are excluded are not included in assessment metrics).

Global Exclusions

You can store or access a global exclusion from any AppScan® Source for Analysis application - and these exclusions apply to all scans. Only shared filters may become global filters.

Application and Project Exclusions

Bundle exclusions apply only to an application. A filter exclusion may apply to an application or project. Exclusions that are applied to applications and projects can be shared or local.
