Integrating Acunetix 360 with Azure Pipelines

Azure DevOps is a web-based DevOps manager that provides CI/CD pipeline features called Azure Pipelines.

You can integrate Acunetix 360 with Azure Pipelines using cURL or PowerShell scripts generated by our Integration Script Generator, in order to enable our advanced integration functionality.

For further information, see What Systems Does Acunetix 360 Integrate With?.

Generating and Using Acunetix 360’s Azure Integration Scripts

Acunetix 360 uses cURL and PowerShell command-line tools to integrate with Azure Pipelines. In order to integrate with Acunetix 360, the Pipeline agent’s execution environment must support cURL or PowerShell.



These instructions are based on PowerShell, but the same can be applied for cURL.
