Re: Issue with guided Scan

Webservice wsdl used in “webservice scan“is automatically getting fetched in guided scan “Start URL” .

Even though we copy pasted with new URL , Scan is getting failed and following error message is displayed in log files “Failed to generate a user instance of SQL Server due to a failure in starting the process for the user instance. The connection will be closed”.

Please find attached document for screen Shot.

Re: Issue with guided Scan

The guided Scan Wizard and the Basic Scan Wizard in WebInspect are only used for scanning web sites (and REST web services/API).  For SOAP or WSDL based web services, you need to use the Web Services Scan Wizard.

Optimally, you would first open WSDL with the included Web Service Designer tool to preview and preset the web service coverage, valid form values, and authentication.  Later, you will provide the output (*.WSD) from that tool as input for the Web Service Scan wizard.  Please review that tool's Help Guide for detailed steps and guidance on configuring your WSDL scan.  Multiple WSDL may be included into a single WSD file for use in the scan wizard.
