When you tick the Exclude option at the bottom left of the settings, Netsparker will not crawl and scan any URLs which include any of the specified patterns in the URL. When you tick the Include option Netsparker will only crawl and scan the URLs which include the specified patterns in the URL.

Netsparker Cloud will only match the specified patterns in the URL and not in a link’s name, title or text. Therefore if for example the logout page’s name is sessionend.php add the sessionend text to the list for it to be excluded.
