Rulepack: Automatic Rules Update in Fortify SAST products (SCA, AWB, SSC)

Hello,

is there a way to automatize the update of rulepacks in SCA, AWB, SSC? 

(For example, every 3 month, schedule a download of rulepacks and update of rulepacks to SSC, SCA and AWB) ? 

Thanks very much in advance!

Hello,

For SSC the rulepack updates cannot be automated and requires a manual update.  

For AWB, in the options menu you can select Server Configuration --> Perform Security content update automatically.

This will also be used by SCA. 

This is controlled in file <SCA install dir>/Core/config/server.properties

rulepack.days=15
rulepack.auto.update=false

Mark,

Any idea what time SCA/AWB updates rulepacks when the autoupdate feature is turned on? If I set rulepack.days=1, will it update at midnight? How is it managing this update, is there a scheduled task being created? Does SSC trigger this?
