I have created standard authentication for my website and added to my scan. There was no feature i saw if the authentication you sat up is working or to test it before adding it to web application. I tested the authentication myself manually on the website and I know it works. But when it comes to Qualys WAS adding new authentication to Web application, I cannot figure out if it is working when the scan runs. The reason why I am suspecting it is not working is by the number of link it has discovered. It is very low and if the authentication would have worked more parts of the website would have been exposed and more links would have been discovered.
