Viewing Issues in Invicti Enterprise

This document is for:

The Issues window displays lists of vulnerabilities detected in scans run by your entire team. You can get an overview of Issues that have been assigned to you, those that are awaiting a Retest, and those that are Addressed.

Issues ToDo Screen
  • Administrators and project managers benefit from an overview of all Issues, including the current State of each Issue and to whom it has been assigned.
  • You can send any issue to an issue tracking system that you integrated with Invicti.
  • You can see details of the HTTP Request and Response of an Issue.
  • You can update an issue details, such as Fixed(Unconfirmed) and Accepted Risk.

For further information, see Managing Issues in Invicti Enterprise.

Issues lists

This table lists and explains the lists available from the submenus in the Issues window.

List

Description

To Do

This window displays a list of all the Issues that have been assigned to you. You can take action by fixing them, assigning them to someone else or changing their status.

  • The number next to the menu name indicates how many outstanding items you have on your To-Do list.
  • In the Status column for each newly identified vulnerability, it will read Present. Once you click Retest, it will change to Fixed (Unconfirmed).

Waiting for Retest

This window displays a list of all Issues whose State has been updated to Fixed (Unconfirmed). They are waiting to be tested automatically by Invicti Enterprise.

Addressed Issues

This window displays a list of all the Issues that have been addressed and whose State has been updated to one of the following:

  • Accepted Risk: Indicates that the Issue has been considered and is marked as a low risk vulnerability
  • False Positive: Indicates that the Issue has been considered and is marked as not a genuine vulnerability
  • Fixed (Confirmed): Indicates that the Issue has been fixed and confirmed by Invicti Enterprise, and so requires no further action

Users with Manage Issues (Restricted) permission can only mark an Issue’s state as ‘Fixed (Confirmed)’.

All Issues

This window displays a list of all Issues detected in scans run by your entire team. The entire team can view all Issues in a scan report, even if they only have the Manage Issues (Restricted) permission.
