Setting up and Configuring the CxIAST Node.js Agent in the AUT Environment

Pre-Requisites

Application servers running the CxIAST Node.js agent require the Node.js LTS as listed under Supported Environments for Applications Under Testing in the release notes for the IAST version in use.

Installation

In cases when the application under test runs via a process manager (e.g., forever), stop the application from the process manager. Otherwise, stop the application directly.

Configuration

During installation, the agent creates a new directory named .cxiast-data under the application's folder.

The folder includes a file named cx-agent-config.json.

There you can override the agent's default configuration in json format.
