How to Export Reported Vulnerabilities to Projects in TFS

There are several ways to send issues to TFS with Invicti Enterprise:

  • Once notifications have been configured, you can configure Invicti Enterprise to automatically send vulnerabilities after scanning has been completed (see How to Configure a Notification to Report Vulnerabilities to an Issue Tracking System).
  • You can send one or more issues from the Issues window:
    • You must have Manage Issue permission.
    • From the main menu, select Issues, then All Issues
    • From the Issues page, select one or more issues you want to send.
    • Select Send To > TFS.

A pop-up is displayed, with a link to the issue you have sent to TFS. If there is an error, this information will be displayed instead.

  • Next to the relevant scan, select Report
  • Scroll down to the Technical Report section.
