Using AppScan Standard scans or templates

You can create and upload your own AppScan Standard scan or template, for specific configuration for scanning your public website.

If you have specific configuration requirements, you can configure and use your own AppScan Standard scan or scan template, and use it for your scan. A SCAN file is an actual AppScan scan with results; a SCANT file is an AppScan Standard configuration without results. You can use either as the basis of your ASoC scan.

Examples of specific cases where you might want to use a custom AppScan Standard configuration (SCAN or SCANT file) are:
  • The site has a complex login procedure that you want to record
  • You want to limit the scan to a specific part of the site
  • You want to configure some custom parameters
  • There are parts of the site that can only be reached by clicking links in a specific order
