Integrating Netsparker Enterprise with CircleCI

CircleCI is a continuous integration and delivery system that is used by software teams to allow them to build, test and deploy applications easier and quicker on multiple platforms. With an emphasis on speed and configurability, CircleCI is built to help users test their applications whenever they make changes to it, release it or deploy it.

This topic explains how to configure Netsparker Enterprise to send a detected vulnerability to CircleCI.

For further information, see What Systems Does Netsparker Integrate With?.

CircleCI Fields

This table lists and explains the CircleCI fields in the New CircleCI Integration window.



Scan Type

This is the type of scan:

  • Incremental
  • Full (With primary profile)
  • Full (With selected profile)

For further information, see Types of Scans.


Click to select the URL of the website that will be scanned.

Scan Profile

Click to select the Scan Profile that will be used. (If you selected Full (With primary profile) as the Scan Type, this is not displayed.)


Add the information in this script to the corresponding fields in the config.yml file in your project. Use variables for Netsparker Enterprise and API credentials.

How to Generate and Use Netsparker Enterprise’s CircleCI Integration Orbs

Netsparker Enterprise uses GitHub for integration with CircleCI. First, create a config.yml in your project’s root directory. CircleCI will read it each time it runs a build.

Here is a sample config.yaml file:
