WebInspect API not working after SQL upgrade

Hi,

 

The webInspect API was working fine on the SQL server 2008. By fine, I mean, I was able to create/start new scans etc. But recently, we upgraded the SQL server to 2014 version and suddenly I cannot create/start scans. I keep getting this message: An error has occured.

 

Few more points:

 

1. I can create/start scans from the UI and they all work fine. Its just the API seems to have stopped working.

2. I turned on the debug level and have attached the log file.

4. I am using this curl command:

 

curl -d "settingsName=<Settings file name>&overrides={\"ScanName\":\"Test\",\"StartUrl\":\"http://zero.webappsecurity.com\",\"CrawlAuditMode\":\"CrawlAndAudit\",\"StartOption\":\"Url\"}" "http://<Host>/webinspect/scanner/"

 

If you have nay idea, what might be causing this issue or how I can debug it, please let me know.

 

Thanks,
Tarveen

Unfortunately MS SQL 2014 is not yet supported by WebInspect, only SQL 2012 and SQL 2008.  From the (attached) HP_Fortify_System_Requirements_4.30.pdf, here are the permitted databases for WebInspect 10.40 released April 2015.

 

 

SQL Server

     (Theoretically no scan database limit)

Microsoft SQL Server 2012 with SP1   - Recommended
Microsoft SQL Server 2012 with SP2
Microsoft SQL Server 2008 R2 with SP2

 

SQL Server Express

    (10 GB scan database limit)

Microsoft SQL Server 2012 Express with SP1 - Recommended

Microsoft SQL Server 2012 Express with SP2

Microsoft SQL Server 2008 R2 Express with SP3
