Website Allocation

Websites are automatically added to your license(s) before starting scans.

If you deactivate a license, you will be prompted to reallocate websites to licenses if there is space left on the remaining licenses.

How to Allocate Websites to Licenses

When you try to start a scan, you will be prompted with the Website Checker dialog which will check the accessibility of the websites you want to scan. After you have decided which hosts to be allocated, the selected hosts will be allocated on your available licenses. If you don’t have enough website allocation slots available on your licenses, the allocation process will fail. After you have allocated a website to a license, when you try to scan that website, you won’t be prompted with the allocation dialog again.

Expiring Licenses

There are three stages to expiry:


When there are 45 days remaining on your Invicti Standard license, this message will be displayed every time you open the application. The numbers of days left until the license is due for renewal will be displayed.

The number of days left is also displayed on the ribbon.


When there are 0 days remaining on your Invicti Standard license, this message, stating that your license has expired and Invicti will be locked, will be displayed every time you open the application and every time you start a scan. The number of days left until you lose access to Invicti will be displayed.


Once you have reached the Expiry stage, you no longer have access to Invicti Standard. If you try to open Invicti Standard, the Activate New License will be displayed.


  • License Keys must be activated before Invicti Standard can be launched.
  • For Invicti Standard, it is not possible to copy a license from one PC to another. If you want to do this, you must deactivate the license first. Then you can activate the license on your new PC from your License Store. If you have run out of licenses completely, contact to purchase more.
  • It is possible to have a license remotely deactivated.

Moving and Backing Up Invicti Standard Settings

When moving Invicti Standard web application security scanner from one computer to another, you need to move both the license key and the settings.

This section refers to versions prior to Invicti Standard 5.0.

How to Move or Back Up Invicti Standard Settings

  1. First, locate the scanner’s settings, which are stored in a directory called ‘Invicti’, located in your user profile’s Documents directory: C:\Users\[user]\Documents\Invicti
  2. This directory contains several subdirectories, for example:
    • The Policies subdirectory is where Scan Policies are stored
    • The Profiles subdirectory is where Scan Profiles are stored
    • The Scans subdirectory is where Scans are stored
  3. To backup or move the settings of your Invicti Standard simply copy the Invicti directory to your backup drive, or move it to the new computer where you have the new installation of Invicti Standard.
