Retesting a Scan

Retesting at issue creates a separate scan entity that is a duplicate of the selected scan. Initially, the settings are identical, but you can modify them without affecting the original scan settings. A separate scan history is maintained for each retested scan.

Since Bright provides a separate discovery and scanning, you can choose what process you want to restart.

  • To restart a discovery (which equals creating a new one), open the Projects tab → Select a project → + Add EntrypointsCreate new Discovery. Learn more on how to create a new discovery in the article.
  • To restart a scan, open the Scans tab → TargetsSelect known Entrypoints from the Project. This will start a scan without a process of finding new entrypoints.
  • To retest a scan in an old way, open the Scans tab → TargetsDiscover Entrypoints during a scan. Learn more on how to retest a scan in the article.
