Manual Exploring

This section deals with ways in which you can manually explore your application or services before starting the Test stage of the scan, or before starting an automatic scan (that includes both automatic Explore and Test stages).

Manual exploring is when you explore your site to gather data that can be used by AppScan to ensure that when it tests the site it covers parts of the application or services that it might have missed with its automatic Explore stage. This may be because specific user input is required, or because the site responds only to a different type of tool or device. You can manually explore using AppScan, or using it as a recording proxy.
