Add a URL Scan to a Dynamic Analysis with the REST API

You can use the Dynamic Analysis API to add a URL to an existing analysis.

To complete this task:

  1. Add the URL to the scan_config_request property in the JSON file.

  2. Ensure the action_type property is set to ADD in the JSON file.

  3. Run this command to get a list of analyses by name:

    http --auth-type=veracode_hmac GET ""
  4. Run this command, where name is the name of the analysis you want to edit:

    http --auth-type=veracode_hmac GET "{name}"
  5. Obtain the analysis_id of the analysis you want to edit.

  6. Run this command to add the URL:

    http --auth-type=veracode_hmac PUT "{analysis_id}?method=PATCH" < input.json

    The API passes the JSON file that you populate with the necessary values as shown in this example payload:

    "name": "Name-of-Your-Dynamic-Analysis",
    "scans": [
    "scan_config_request": {
    "target_url": {
    "url": ""
    "action_type": "ADD"
