Web Site Scan, Workflow-Driven Scan using Proxy Tool Macro not finding any web pages

Jump to solution

I'm using WI 9.3 and have recorded a login macro using the Web Macro recorder tool and a workflow macro using the Web Proxy tool.  When I use these to perform a Web Site Scan the scan initializes but then returns "Complete" without listing or auditing any actual web pages from my site.  I've verified the site is up and browsable in IE9 (my WI server browser), and that the proxy settings are correct.

 

This started happening within the last week, any ideas what's going on?

The Logs Viewer tool might expose what the error was?  Click the "WebInspect" button in the toolbar to browse those logs.  If you want to access them directly, they will be stored in a folder named all zeros ("000") under the Logs folder path.  check your Application Settings > Directories for that Logs path.

 

Enabling the Traffic Monitor or Web Proxy interception might expose more details of what is occurring during the scan.

 

Have you upgraded to WebInspect 10.0 yet, from April 22nd 2013?  Has this issue recurred for the same configuration?

I was able to clear this error by closing WI and rebooting the system, fairly imple. This happened on my other server also, so it is not a one-time thing.
