Publish the selected assessment to the AppScan® Enterprise Console.


ounceauto PublishAssessmentASE -file <assessment_file> 
[-aseapplication <ase_application>] [-caller <caller>] 
[-folder <location>] [-name <published_assessment_name>] 
  • -file <assessment_file>: Required. Path and file name of the assessment file.
  • -aseapplication <ase_application>: This option is required when connected to AppScan® Enterprise Server Version 9.0.3 and higher (unless you disable the requirement, as described here). Associating an application is optional when connected to earlier versions of AppScan® Enterprise Server. Use this option to specify the Enterprise Console application to associate the assessment with.
  • -caller <caller>: Optional. Assign a caller to the report generation operation. The caller can be the name of an actual user, but this is not required. The caller name is written to the ounceauto log file.
  • -folder <location>: Optional. This option only applies when connected to AppScan® Enterprise Server versions prior to Version 9.0.3. Specify the Enterprise Console folder to publish to. If this argument is not used, the assessment will be published to your default Enterprise Console folder.
  • -name <published_assessment_name>: Optional. Name that the assessment will be saved as in the Enterprise Console. If this argument is not used, a name will be generated based on the AppScan® Source application that was scanned to produce the assessment (this name will be prepended with AppScan Source:).
  • -preventOverwrite: Optional. Include this argument to prevent publication if an assessment of the same name already exists on the server.
