Managing Websites and APIs

Adding a website or API

This document is for:
Invicti Enterprise On-Demand, Invicti Enterprise On-Premises

To run a security scan on a website using Invicti Enterprise, you need to add a website or API. 

What is a website?

A website is defined in Invicti as a fully qualified domain name (FQDN). An FQDN is the complete domain name for a specific target and consists of two parts: the hostname and the domain name.

The below examples are considered to be 1 website as they share the same FQDN.


Subdomains and ports share the same FQDN but are considered to be different websites. For example:

Once you add a website, it will immediately use a license.
