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

Veracode APIs

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

  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 "https://api.veracode.com/was/configservice/v1/analyses/"
  4. Run this command, where name is the name of the analysis you want to edit:
    http --auth-type=veracode_hmac GET "https://api.veracode.com/was/configservice/v1/analyses?name={name}"
  5. Obtain the analysis_id of the analysis you want to edit.
  6. Run this command to add the additional URL:
    http --auth-type=veracode_hmac PUT "https://api.veracode.com/was/configservice/v1/analyses/{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": "https://www.example.com"
      "action_type": "ADD"
