Can we get Web pages information from Webinspect scan

Hello Everyone,


Being new to WebInspect, I just need to know can we get the information of number of pages crawled in Webinspect scan.

Also, the details of pages crawled.

From what I understand, Webinspect gives the sessions which are crawled, but doesn't specify the pages.

We are interested in getting these web pages information.


If Yes, where can we retrieve this information in Webinspect. Do I need to configure any settings for this.

There are several ways to get further details.  Could you detail what this information is going to be used for?  That might lead to alternate solutions or extractions that better meet your use case.



Dashboard:  The Dashboard pane in the upper right of WebInspect includes overall statistics for the scan, including total traffic, number of logouts, number of attacks, et al.  These are not exportable, but they are visible.


Crawled URLs:  There is both a Report template and an Export > Scan Details option to output all of the URLs Crawled during a scan.  The Report output formats include PDF, RTF, and XLS.  The Export options for the Crawled URLs is TXT (XML for others).  If the raw output has more details than you want, you might run the Report to XLS format and then edit the output to suit your needs.


All details:  The best out =put for editing after the scan would be the Export option for Scan Details > Full (XML).  This will output the entire scan as one XML file, and this will include all of the pages and session in the Site Tree, plus all the Issues, and all of the Remediation Details for those Issues.  This output may be more than you are seeking, but as raw XML it would provide you an excellent starting point to extract what you want and remove the rest using your own transformation process.


Broken Links / Offsite Links:  These Scan Info details are visible on the UI, and you should be able to copy the entire pane and paste the text into another program.  These are also available via the Reports templates and the Exports of Scan Details as well.


Web Site Dump:  A very rarely used Export option is the Web Site Dump.  This will produce a copy of the Site Tree such that you should be able to take that output and go host it on your own web server.  This may be akin to web site copiers such as HTTrack.  The resulting "web site" may not include all of the functionality of the original, but it can be close.
