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.



Opted for using the Acunetix 360 Extension for Azure Pipelines? Then, from the Acunetix 360 main menu, go to Integrations > New Integration > Azure Pipelines. Then, select View Extension in the Use Extension section.

For further information about installation and configuration, see Acunetix 360 Enterprise Extension.

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.
