Changing scan areas during scan

Karthik | Last updated: Nov 19, 2015 07:44AM UTC

If I change Active scanning areas during scan will it reflect in the current scan ? Scenario: 1. I have selected SQL injection checks and started scan 2. I pause the scan and select XSS Checks 3. I resume the scan Question 1: Will the current scan include the XSS as well or it will be applicable from the new scan only ? Question 2: If this change will be reflected in the current scan, do I have to pause scanning and enable additional checks or even without pausing, if I select additional areas, the same would be reflected in the current scan ? Please clarify

The selection of which checks to perform is enforced when the Scanner begins work on each insertion point. It decides which checks to use based on the current config, and then works through those checks. Changes you make to the enabled checks will take effect when the Scanner moves on to the next insertion point (or the next item in the queue).
