How to enable Legacy Reporting option in VS 2017?

Hi All,

I've already setup Fortify SCA 19.20 with VS 2017. I could able to imitate scan as well. However, when I look for Legacy reporting option upon scanning, it just doesn't display. Without this I can not able to pull out the scan report. Could someone please let me know how to enable that option on Visual Studio 2017?

Thanks in Advance.

Regards,

Arun

Hi Arun,

I am not sure what Legacy Reporting option used to exist in VS 2017, but have you tried just using the "Generate BIRT Report" feature from within Visual Studio? See screenshot from VS 2017.

Also, are you aware of Audit Workbench, this is installed as part of the Fortify apps installation and you can use it to open any scan result (.fpr file)  and generate reports from within Audit Workbench.

Hi,

Per the 19.2.0 Release Notes:

Legacy reports were temporarily disabled in the Fortify Visual Studio extension. The action is going to be restored in the next release but lose rtf format support. Please, use Fortify Audit Workbench or ReportGenerator command line utility to generate legacy reports. You can still generate BIRT reports from Visual Studio.
