API Enhancements

Updates to Cancel Scan Option (API)

We’ve made updates to the cancel scan option for this release. Now WAS lets you configure a default scan cancel option per web application using the Web App API . Also when launching or scheduling a scan you can choose to use the default web app setting or override it with a custom setting using the Scan API and Schedule API.


Finding API - New “IS EMPTY” Filter for External References

We’ve added a way to identify findings findings with empty external references. The new “IS EMPTY” filter can be assigned as an operator to the externalRef field using the Finding API Count and Search methods.


Please refer to attached document ( WAS 4.2 API Release Notification.pdf ) for full details.
