Objects and context

The AppScan® Source object tree

The object tree shows the basic structure of AppScan® Source objects. You can scan any object (applications, projects, or source files) within the tree structure.

Active objects and current context

Many AppScan® Source command line interface (CLI) commands act only within the current context; that is, within the current directory or on a specified file. Use the SetCurrentObject (SET, CD) command to move to the object before calling any command that requires a current context.

Additionally, some CLI commands only act on an active object; which may be the currently selected source file, project, or application with an assessment.
