How can we modify the default scan report naming format in Webinspect?

If we generate a scan report where we have select the option of automatically generating report names.

Can we modify the default naming format of Scan report so that we dont have to every time select manual 'Save As' option and name the Scan Report?

Hi :

As we teach in the HP Software Education training course.  The default reports and formats are locked, but you can create a template from the default that is allowable for any reuse that you might need.  This is part of the reason we can create Favorites to allow for the reuse.

To create a Favorite.

1. Bring up the Reports Option.

2. Select your desired Report Items

3. Select Advanced and click Save "Report to Disk", Unclick Automatic generate file name.

4. Finally select Add to Favorites from the Favorites drop down and chose the favorite

5. Click Finish and run the report.

As I mention we teach this along with numerous other items to make your WebInspect in our training course and I would encourage you to possibly look at attending an upcoming course.

I hope this helps some...
