  • Sort the list of websites by clicking on any column name to arrange the list in alphabetical order based on the entries in that column.
  • Filter the list of websites by clicking on the search icon next to a column title and entering search criteria, as displayed in the screenshot.
  • Launch or schedule web security scans by clicking the Scan button or view the website's dashboard by clicking on the website's name. For further information on how to launch and schedule new web application security scans, see Creating a New Scan.

Operator

This table lists and explains the Operators available for filtering columns. They work in conjunction with the Field, Operator, and Value.

Operator

Description

Equal

This operator can be used for exact matching. For example, if you filtered by the Target URL http://www.example.com/, the filtered list of results would not also list http://api.example.com.

Not Equal

This operator can be used to exclude some results based on exactly matching. For example, if you filtered by the Target URL of http://www.example.com/, the filtered list of results would exclude scans for that one.

Contains

This operator can be used to include results if the filtered column contains the value. It does not matter where the value is. For example, you could filter for the word 'production'.

Not Contains

This operator can be used to exclude certain results on the Websites page.

Starts with

This operator can be used to filter for columns that begin with the value. For example, you could filter for Website fields that begin with the 'https://' scheme.

Ends with

This operator can be used to filter for columns that end with the value. For example, you could filter for Website Name fields ending with 'Staging'.
