Project Description

The purpose of this plugin is to allow Jenkins to perform dynamic analysis with IBM AppScan Standard with minimal configuration.


First you must set that machine as a node (slave), you can follow this guide to do so.

Afterwards you can use the Node and Label Parameter Plugin, following the guide provided in its wiki achieving this goal should be straightforward.


If you change the CSS options, they won't be applied to the current report, you must re-run the build/scan.


This version of the plugin was tested with Jenkins 2.0, 2.7 and 2.17 and IBM Security AppScan Standard 9.0.3.





Running AppScan Standard in a Pipeline

  1. Navigate to "Pipeline Syntax" (follow a, b or c below)
    1. (create a pipeline job, save and it will be on the left side menu)
    2. (navigate to an existing pipeline job, it will be on the left side menu)
    3. (navigate to http://JENKINS-URL-HERE/pipeline-syntax/)
  2. In "Steps" find "step: General Build Step"
  3. in "Build Step" find "Run AppScan Standard"
  4. Configure AppScan Standard plugin as usual
  5. Press "Generate Pipeline Script" and copy the resulting script
  6. Paste the script in your pipeline inside a node

The end result would look like the image below.

Image Added

A resulting script looks something like the one below, you can use this one as your starting point.

stage ('Run AppScan Standard') {
    node {
        step([$class: 'AppScanStandardBuilder', additionalCommands: '', authScanPw: '',
             authScanUser: '', includeURLS: '', installation: 'AppScan Standard Default',
             pathRecordedLoginSequence: '', policyFile: '', reportName: '', startingURL: ''])
