Create a Dynamic Analysis of a Single URL with Prescan Verification Using the REST API

Veracode APIs

You can use the Dynamic Analysis API to create an analysis with prescan verification.

To be able to run a prescan verification before the Dynamic Analysis, you must allow two hours for the prescan to complete before you schedule the analysis to begin.
  1. Enter values for the scan_config_request and schedule properties in the JSON file.
  2. Run this command:
    http --auth-type=veracode_hmac POST "" < input.json

    The run_verification=true query property specifies that the prescan run after the command creates the analysis.

    Note: If your prescan verification fails, the Dynamic Analysis also fails.

This is an example of a Dynamic Analysis for a single URL with prescan:

  "name": "Name-of-Your-Dynamic-Analysis",
  "scans": [
      "scan_config_request": {
        "target_url": {
          "url": ""
  "schedule": {
    "start_date": "2020-02-27T02:00+00:00",
    "duration": {
      "length": 3,
      "unit": "DAY"
You can call GET /analyses to see the status of your analyses.
