Add a Target in Acunetix 360
In order to execute a security scan on a target using Acunetix 360, you first need to add the target in the New Target page. If the Target is not defined and you launch a scan, the system will display an error (‘The Target URL field is required.’).
If you want to add more than one website at a time, or if you have lots of websites to scan, see Import Targets in Acunetix 360.
