web inspect - Change the browser on guided scan

Hi,

 

Is it possible to change the browser in a guided scan ? It appears that by default it is firefox 30.0 which is quite outdated for my tests.

 

Regards,

Debou

Re: web inspect - Change the browser on guided scan

Currently there is no option to change the underlying browser. You can modify the user agent string, but cannot change the browser engine.

If you have WI 19.x the recommendation is to change the default macro engine to Macro Recorder 5.0 (Gecko 59) and use basic scan.

The plans are to have the underlying script server updated in WI 20.1.

Hi,

Thanks for your answer. I've got WI 19.x. How do you change the default macro engine ? Is it possible to use that tip with guided scan which is the only option available in trial version ?

Here is a video demonstrating the new Macro Recorder 5.0 - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3IkriZnriys. You can also download the Macro Recorder 5.0 via the Fortify Marketplace to test it with your website - https://marketplace.microfocus.com/fortify/content/webinspect-macro-recorder-5. This will at least allow you to test that portion.
