Displaying CxSCA Scan Results in CxSAST

Support for displaying CxSCA scan results in CxSAST is available from CxSAST 9.0 HF19, 9.2 HF14 and 9.3 HF7. Make sure to always have the latest available hotfix installed.

To allow users to easily compare scan results generated with scans by two different engines, it is now possible to display CxSCA results in the summary page of CxSAST. To display the CxSCA results in CxSAST, do the following:

 1. Enable the option by editing the IsScaEnabled feature flag in the database.

 2. Enable your user to log in to CxSAST and CxSCA by setting up the Primary Access Control. 

 3. Define the CxSCA URL and the tenant name in CxSAST.

 4. To view scan results of CxSCA in CxSAST, log in to CxSAST and, from the menu, select Dashboard > Projects State

Enabling Displaying CxSCA in the Database

You have to first enable this option in the database as follows:

 1. Open  SQL Server Management Studio.

 2. In the Object Explorer, navigate to Databases >CxDB >Tables > dbo.CxComponentConfiguration.

 3. Right-click  dbo.CxComponentConfiguration and select Edit Top 200 Rows. The associated keys appear listed.

 4. Navigate to IsScaEnabled and set it to true.

Enabling Access Control to Authenticate Users for CxSAST and CxSCA

Secondly, you have to enable Access Control to authenticate users for CxSAST and CxSCA at the same time by setting up the Primary Access Control.

To enable the Primary Access Control feature:

1. Go to the CxSCA Portal.

2. Click , the User Management icon (highlighted by the red square in the left pane in the above screenshot). The Access Control page opens.

3. Select Settings.

4. Continue with the configuration as explained here.

Defining the CxSCA Properties in CxSAST

By default, CxSAST displays the CxOSA settings on the dashboard, if the license for CxOSA was accepted. Users can choose to display CxSCA results in this space instead. To do so, you have to define the CxSCA URL and the tenant name in CxSAST as follows:

 1. In CxSAST, from the menu, go to Settings > Application Settings and select SCA Settings from the menu.

 

If OSA Settings is displayed instead, this feature has not been enabled in the database.

 2. Edit the SCA text display according to the feature flag configuration.

 3. Under Tenant Name, enter the tenant name.

 4. Under API URL, select a CxSCA API URL from the dropdown list, or enter a custom URL if needed, for example for a proxy site.

 5. Under Webapp URL, select a CxSCA URL from the dropdown list, or enter a custom URL if needed, for example for a proxy site.

 6. Click <TEST CONNECTION> to verify that your settings are correct.

 

 7. Click <CLOSE> and refresh the page.

All connection test results must be labeled for the CxSCA results to be displayed on the Dashboard.

Viewing the CxSCA Results in CxSAST

If enabled and configured as explained in this section, a summary of results obtained by scanning source code in CxSCA is displayed side by side with a summary of CxSAST scan results in the CxSAST Dashboard as illustrated in this section.
