We’ve made a bunch of improvements and released new features for the Bright app and API security scanner. Give them a spin!

Improvements

View scan history by scan ID

history_id

Have you ever wanted to see all the re-runs of a specific scan? Well, you’re in luck! We introduced a History ID to all scans. To view all of the re-runs of a specific scan, you simply need to filter scans by the History ID of the original scan.

Improvements to authentication flow configuration

There are lots of new improvements in running authenticated scans:

  • There is now automatic support for Firebase authentication in browser-based form authentication
  • We added Repeater connectivity status to the selection of a Repeater in an authentication object configuration
  • You can now easily re-order stages for custom API and browser-based authentication flows
  • We improved the ‘Maximum number of redirects’ selector to be more intuitive
  • We improved the ‘Logout indicators’ section to be more user friendly and clean

Improved Repeater execution command for Docker option in the onboarding wizard

We improved the docker command to remove the container from the list of containers in the docker management console on shutting down of the docker.

More options to open scans and projects in a new tab

We added support for middle-mouse click or Ctrl + left-mouse click to open Scans and Projects in a new tab.

A vulnerability scanner is a specialized software tool designed to assess the security of computers, networks, or applications by automatically detecting and analyzing weaknesses. These scanners proactively search for security vulnerabilities, such as unpatched software, misconfigurations, and other security gaps that could be exploited by attackers. Some scanners can simulate the actions of an attacker to help identify exploitable vulnerabilities.
