User Interface

The Checkmarx SAST Reporting Service interface allows to you create templates based on filters and to request reports generation.

Notice

The User Interface is available from version 2.0 only.

Concepts

Template

A template is a pre-defined set of filters and KPIs (key performance indicators).

Out of the box, the service delivers default templates, each one having its own set of filters and KPIs.

Besides these default templates, you can create your own templates, by defining specific filters to be applied when obtaining the data to build the KPIs. When creating a custom template, you define filters only; the KPIs are pre-defined for each template type and cannot be customized.

Report

A report is an instance of a template. When a report is requested, the service gathers data from the database to build the KPIs, and generates a file that represents a snapshot of the information available when the report was requested.
