Developer comments

If you are downloading the project's source code package, you will need to install 7-Zip (http://www.7-zip.org/) for building it.

Overview

IBM Security AppScan Reporter for Microsoft PowerPoint reads in two template files:

  1. Design template
  2. Content template

IBM Security AppScan Reporter for Microsoft PowerPoint copies all slides from the content template, creates a new presentation based on the design template, and pastes the slides in. It then proceeds to search for predefined fields and replace them with data driven values from the current scan.

Users can also create their own templates as well as add contents to existing templates. For more information, click on the Help button in the eXtension.
