Remove a URL Scan from a Dynamic Analysis with the REST API

You can use the Dynamic Analysis API to delete a URL scan from an analysis.

To complete this task:

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

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

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

  4. Run this command to find the scan_id:

    http --auth-type=veracode_hmac GET "{analysis_id}/scans"
  5. Add the scan ID to the JSON file.

  6. Ensure the action_type property is set to REMOVE in the JSON file.

  7. Run this command, where analysis_id is the ID of the analysis from which to delete the scan:

    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": [
    "action_type": "REMOVE",
    "scan_id": "{scan_id}"
