Running an Incremental Scan from a Zip Archive


  • Initiating an Incremental scan is possible only if a scan has already been completed within a project.

  • Incremental scans are relevant only for SAST scanners.

  • API Security currently supports Java - Spring 2.x and C# - ASP.NET 4.x Web API only.

To open the new Scan dialog:

  1. On the Application and Projects home page, click Projects.

  2. Navigate to the desired project in the list and click <Scans.png Scan>. The New Scan dialog appears.


To define the new scan:

  1. If the desired project does not appear under Project Name, select it from the drop-down list.

  2. Under Source to Scan, select File.

  3. Upload the zip archive that contains your code. To do so, drag and drop the zip archive or click Select File to select and upload it.

  4. Under Scan Tags, add a tag to the new scan (optional).

    Tags can be added in two different formats:

    Label: <string>

    key:value: <string:string>

  5. Check Completed.png Incremental Scan.

  6. Click <Next>. You are asked to select the scanners.

  7. Select one or multiple scanners.

  8. Click <Scan>. The New Scan dialog closes and the scan start.
