When using the progressive scanning feature in Qualys WAS, you may not be able to tell from the scan list if your web application has been completely scanned or not. You will see the progressive scan count increase every time a scheduled scan is completed.














To determine if the entire site has been scanned, you can use the information from QID 150024 and QID 150021 in the scan report. If the progressive scan didn't complete, you should see the following under QID 150024:



If the progressive scan finished completely, you will not see QID 150024 in the scan report.


It's also helpful to look at Scan Diagnostics (QID 150021), because it will differ from one scan to the next.  It will show you the tests that have been completed in a previous scan.
