Tagging in Acunetix 360

You can tag websites, scans, and issues in Acunetix 360. This lets you give additional context to scans, websites, website groups, and issues for easy viewing. Tagging also helps you group similar scans, websites, and issues.

  • If you have many websites and scans, tagging will help you to freely group them in Acunetix 360.
  • Tagging also improves search functionality and better organizes scans, websites, and issues. When you select a tag, for example, on the issues page, you can see all issues associated with that tag.
  • Tags also appear in reports, such as Detailed Scan Report and Technical Report. (For further information about reports, see Detailed Scan Report.)

Tags can consist of a name and a value, separated with a colon character; that is name: value. Having a 2 component tag like this will make it possible to organize/categorize the tags within themselves. Or, they can be a single word.

Tag categories

There are four tag categories in Acunetix 360.

Scan Tags -

These tags are associated with scans.

Website Tags -

These tags are associated with websites.

Website Group Tags -

These tags are associated with website groups.

Issue Tags -

Thanks to these categories, Acunetix 360 lets you filter tags quickly. You can select a tag to find out, for example, related scans or websites quickly.

However, please note that if you select a tag to filter, for instance, issues in the Issues page, you will view all issues associated with that tag. You will not view scans or websites that may have the same tag.
