Azure Pipelines

If you are using Azure DevOps for development automation, you can integrate Bright with your Azure CI pipeline using the Nexploit DevOps Integration extension. The integration allows you to automate the security testing flow by running the Bright scans on every new build within your development environment.

Prerequisites

Setup

Get API Key

  • In NexPloit Dashboard navigate to the Organization tab and scroll to the Manage your application API keys section.
  • Press Create new API key button and enter any suitable name (Azure key e.g.)

🚧

Important

Make sure to backup the API key, it cannot be restored.

Using a Pre-Recorded HAR File

If you want to start a new scan with an added HAR file, first upload your HAR file to the Bright app using a simple curl command:

$ curl -X POST "https://app.neuralegion.com/api/v1/files?discard=true"  \
    -H "Content-Type: multipart/form/data"                       \
    -H "Authorization: Api-Key API_KEY" \
    -f '[email protected]//path/to/the/file.har"   

The response id will then be used during setting a new scan in the pipeline, for example:

 {"ids":["FILE_ID"]}

This id will then be used for the File ID field.

When setup is complete, the new scan will start automatically and be visible in your Nexploit account.
