Hi,

 NGINX deployment of SSC would not be possible.  All the SSC deployments are via .war files which NGINX does not recognize. NGINX is not currently tested or a supported application server SSC runs on. 

I think the best you could do is to set up NGINX as a reverse proxy.

Hi Mark.

Thanks for your rapid answer. My question was perhaps unclear. Sorry.
Our SSC is installed on a Windows server 2012. What I ask, it's just if it is possible to install the WI Agent on our target Web Server (wo runs the application under Test) wich is a NGINX WebServer.

The WebInspect agent has the same requirements as Fortify Runtime (see the documentation at https://community.softwaregrp.com/t5/Fortify-Product-Documentation/ct-p/fortify-product-documentation).  These are the application servers on which it has been tested and are therefore supported:

IIS 6, 7, 7.5, 8 or 8.5.  Tomcat 6, 7, 8. IBMWebsphere 7, 8, 8.5, 8.55. Oracle WebLogic 10.0, 10.3, 11g, 11gR1, 12c. Red HatJBoss Enterprise Application Platform 5.1.2, 5.2.0, 6.0.1, 6.1.1, 6.2.0, 6.30, 6.40. Jetty 9.3. Wildfly 10.1.

No, the WI Agent will not work for NGINX.  The WebInspect Agent is a variant of the Fortify Runtime product.  Its current version 17.20 only supports a Microsoft IIS .NET framework (roughly 2.0 - 4.5.1) or a variety of Java application servers (Tomcat, WebSphere, Weblogic, JBoss, Jetty, & Wildfly).  NGINX is developed in C.  there have been requests to add PHP frameworks for support, but thus far our Product Management team has not announced any additional support.

More product documentation may be found elsewhere on these forums:  https://community.softwaregrp.com/t5/Fortify-Product-Documentation/ct-p/fortify-product-documentation
