Websites and APIs Dashboard widgets

The Websites and APIs Dashboard contains many widgets that display graphs and tables pertaining to your scan results. Refer to the individual sections below to learn about the information displayed on each widget.

Top panel

The top panel of the dashboard showcases the following widgets:

  • Website Name: Displays the name of the website or API with a Launch a Scan button.
  • Issues Counter: Shows the number of issues detected on the specific website since the last scan. Additionally, it indicates the variance in numbers. In the scan on the screenshot below, there were 12 issues detected, which is 21 fewer issues than the previous scan.
  • Next Scan: Provides the date and time of the next scheduled scan, or a Schedule a scan button if no scans are scheduled yet.
  • Latest Report: The Report button in this widget takes you to the Scan Summary page where you can explore the Technical Report.

Severity Trend of Scan Results

This widget visualizes issues grouped by Vulnerability severity level, allowing you to compare the count and view the increase or decrease of each severity over time by hovering over the lines. Click the Trend Matrix Report (Severity Trend Report) for a more comprehensive overview. The Trend Matrix Report is generated only if you run more than one scan. Click the icon in the top-right corner to toggle between a table view and a chart view.

Severities of Scan Results

The Severities of Scan Results widget presents a pie chart depicting each severity category along with its respective count. The data in this pie chart reflects the latest scan information. The values presented here align with those found in the last column of the Severity Trend of Scan Results widget located above.

Active Issues

The treemap representation of active issues offers an overarching view of the current issues, with the option to drill down deeper for further exploration. The total count of all Active issues in this widget matches the total number of active issues in the top panel. Click the icon in the top-right corner to switch between a chart view and a table view.

Fixed Issues

This column chart displays the number of Issues that have been fixed in each Vulnerability Severity Level within the specified date range. In the screenshot below, 1 Low vulnerability was fixed.

The link button on the left will take you to the Issues > All Issues screen, where a filter has been applied based on your configuration on the Global Dashboard (Website Group selection, Date Range specification, and Issue present = No).

Issues

This table shows the number of Issues found, grouped by Vulnerability Severity Level. For more information, refer to Viewing Issues in Acunetix 360. Clicking All Issues will take you directly to the Issues > All Issues page.

  • Click Scan to run a new scan of the website with the same set of configurations as the recent scan.
