Exclude Parts of a Target From a Scan

You can exclude some parts of your target from a scan based on different criteria. For example, you may want to exclude a contact form or guest book from a scan of your production website.


When part of a web application is excluded from a web security scan, this part is not scanned for vulnerabilities. We recommend that you run exclusion rules through your testing environment so that you are sure which parts will be scanned.
