Getting to Know the System Dashboard


The CxSAST web interface includes drop-down navigation menus for each relevant module, as follows:

DashboardProjects & Scans | Settings | Access Control | Management & OrchestrationMy Profile  | /wiki/spaces/CCCD/pages/1042874608 | Service & Support 

Visual indicators are displayed just underneath the Checkmarx logo/version and may include:

  • Type of product edition currently installed - SDLC or Security Gate
  • Expiry date of the current CxSAST license. The indicator appears 90 days (defined in the DB) before the actual license expiry date and, if defined, an email notification is automatically sent to the CxSAST System Administrator.

The Services & Support button allows CxSAST users to navigate to available support resources on our new Checkmarx Customer Center portal. This portal enables the option to open tickets and also provides access to useful Checkmarx links. 

CxSAST web interface menu items are described below.

Dashboard Menu

View the state of your engines, scans and queues:

  • Project State: The current project state, including project information such as Risk level score, High/Medium vulnerabilities, LOC, and Last scan date.
  • Failed Scans: Log of failed scans, including reason or partial explanation such as "failed to start scanning due to one of the following reasons: source folder is empty, all source files are of an unsupported language or file format".
  • Utilization: A graphic interface divided into the following four quadrants:
    • Engine State: Provides information about the number of scans to engine ratio.
    • Queue State: Provides information about the number of scans in the queue and their LOC size/ Average waiting time.
    • Projects with Longest Scans: Provides information about the Top 3 scans in the Longest Waiting Time category.
    • Queue Load: Provides perspective about the queue load over a 7 day period. The darker the blue the more in the queue; whereas the empty cell with the black outline is the queue running now.
  • Risk: The Risk graph at the upper half of the window displays the High Risk projects over the last 7 day period, while the lower half displays the Risk Trend of selected projects and Time periods.
  • Data Analysis: Displays a summary analysis of multiple projects. The data can be presented in several predefined configurations and you can also create your own tables.

Codebashing in-context eLearning platform. Codebashing is fully integrated into CxSAST so when developers encounter a security vulnerability they can activate the appropriate learning module at a single click. Once they have run through the hands-on training they get straight back to work equipped with the new knowledge to resolve the problem.
