Installing a CxSAST Engine Pack in Silent Mode

Starting with CxSAST 9.4, Checkmarx is releases updated Engine Packs that you can install as explained below. Engine Packs are provided as CxSAST 9.4.x (for example 9.4.1, 9.4.2, and 9.4.3.)

Prerequisites

Engine Packs require the full CxSAST version of the matching version installed. For example, CxSAST 9.4.2 requires that CxSAST 9.4 be installed. CxSAST Engine Packs do not require the previous Engine Pack to be installed. For example CxSAST 9.4.2 does not require that CxSAST 9.4.1 was previously installed.

Notice

Attempting to install an Engine Pack version that does not match the installed CxSAST version will cause the installation to fail. For example, CxSAST 9.4.x Engine Packs cannot be installed on CxSAST 9.3 installations or CxSAST 9.5 installations.

Installing the CxSAST Engine Pack

This section illustrates the syntax for each available service account option.

Notice

  • If you install the Engine Pack for a Distributed installation, install it on the host where the original CxEngine is installed.

  • Before you install the Engine Pack, check the service account on which CxEngine is running as explained below.

Checking the Service Account

When you installed your CxSAST application, you used the default network account or chose one of the other two options. When installing an Engine Pack, select the same service account on which the current CxEngine is running.

  • Local System account

  • Network Service account (default)

  • This account: A dedicated account that you may have added to serve your CxSAST application. Enter the user credentials to enable CxSAST to access this account.

The example below illustrates the services associated with the Network Service account.
