Restoring archived predefined filters

Predefined filters that were provided in AppScan® Source prior to Version 8.8 can be added back to the product by following the steps in this task. Once restored on a single machine, they can be managed in the same manner as filters that you create (for example, they can be shared to multiple clients).

About this task

Archived predefined filters are located in <data_dir>\archive\filters (where <data_dir> is the location of your AppScan® Source program data, as described in Installation and user data file locations).


  1. In <data_dir>\archive\filters, locate the filter or filters that you want to restore (AppScan® Source filters have a .off file extension).
  2. Copy the filter or filters to <data_dir>\scanner_filters.
  3. Restart AppScan® Source.
