Web Security Scanner
To contact us about the error messages below, Send feedback about the specific scan.
|The app often redirected the scanner to an authentication page||If you're using Google authentication, the scanner detects auth redirects. Most likely the credentials you're using to scan the site are invalid. To check this, start a Chrome incognito session and try to log in with the test credentials on your application.|
|The app produced a high number of errors during this scan||
Web Security Scanner found that a high percentage of requests resulted
|The scan found a small number of results during crawling||Web Security Scanner didn't find many pages to test. This is expected for sites that don't often change the URL and sites that have application features behind multi-step navigation bars. Try adding more seed URLs, like the URL for each feature that a navigation bar leads to.|
|The scan found too many URLs while crawling results and has not tested all of them.||This problem can appear if your app has many URLs that lead to the same template. In this case, file a feature request and the team might be able to tune the duplicate-page logic for you.|
|An internal error occurred during the scan.||This message can indicate one or more internal errors. If you get this message, please send feedback about the specific scan.|
|The scan timed out while crawling the app||
There is a time limit for each stage of the crawler.
|The scan triggered a DDOS protection mechanism and has been stopped||This is caused by too many queries, too fast. Try reducing the Queries Per Second (QPS).|
If Web Security Scanner reports an issue, you need to disable browser cross-site scripting (XSS) protection and then verify the location. For more information, see Verify the issue.
