Guided Scan-WebInspect-Guided Scan-Workflow-HTTPS URL is recorded as HTTP

Hi,

Im currently using WebInspect 17.20. When choosing to use Guided scan and workflow type for an HTTPS URL, i tried importing Microfocus Unified Functional Testing scripts with the help of Import option. I imported the UFT's .usr file and the script ran successully. After that, within the allowed host section i could see my hosts listed with port 80(abc:80). When i tried to edit the imported script, it takes to the macro screen and you could see my URL is being represented as HTTP like http://abc instead of htttps://abc. So when i played all the steps, it eventually failed returning only 404 errors. 

Why the HTTPS website is recognized as HTTP URL? Do i need to make any configuration changes? P

DO help me in this issue.

 

Regards,

Sethu

Interesting issue there - sounds like a possible bug.  Don't suppose you have a snippet of your usr file that you could share?  Maybe obfuscate the hostname?

I would guess that the host URL is coming from the verify step which is required when using the guided scan wizard.  Have you tried it with the basic scan wizard?

Yes, I tried using Basic scan wizard and it works fine, as we use the inbuilt WebInspect macro for recording the workflow.

Integrating UFT scripts is not possible using Basic scan wizard. As the feature is only available through Guided scan wizard alone.

Not sure which is causing this problem.

True enough - I forgot about that limitation.  Not having UFT installed I can't really try this out.  At this point I'd suggest opening a support case as there's a chance you may have discovered a defect.

Well, I have raised a ticket with the Fortify team. Will keep this forum updated with the outcome.

Meanwhile when a solution is stumbled upon let us keep this thread updated.

Thanks.
