Create a Dynamic Analysis with a crawl script using the REST API

You can use the Dynamic Analysis API with a prerecorded crawl sequence to supplement the crawl automation of the Veracode scan engine.

To complete this task:

  1. Enter values for the scan_config_request, crawl_configuration, and schedule properties in the JSON file.

  2. Send the following request:

    http --auth-type=veracode_hmac POST "https://api.veracode.com/was/configservice/v1/analyses" < input.json

    This is an example of how to use a Dynamic Analysis with a crawl script:

    note

    Before you paste the crawl script into the API body, you must escape the JSON. If you need assistance, use the JSON escape utility available at https://jsonformatter.org.
