  3. Select the Excluded Directories analysis, right-click on it, and then click Activate. The analysis is activated and starts retrieving the list of directories.
  4. To view the excluded directories, click the Results tab. Directories are divided according to endpoints. You can view the directories in three ways:
    • All directories printed on separate lines are listed in the Excluded Directories column. If an entry says <multiple results>, hover over it to view the complete list.
    • All directories printed on one line and separated with a semicolon (;) are listed in the Excluded Directories (semicolon separated) column.
    • You can also double-click on <multiple results> to view the summary. All directories are listed in the Excluded Directories entry.


Results

You retrieved the list of all directories that are excluded from scanning. Whenever you add or remove a directory from the list, you can use this analysis to verify if the operation succeeded.
