Error description

  • After creating a bundle with 5 findings from a scan of SimpleIOT
    using AppScan Source version 8.0.0.2, the entire application
    (including the bundle) was moved over to a machine with 8.6
    installed and re-scanned. Some of the findings were excluded and
    some were deemed 'missing' (highlighted in green).
    
    The code did not change, so there should not be any missing
    findings. Since new properties have been added to the findings
    in version 8.6, this appears to be causing them to be seen as
    different and thus, causing some of the findings to be marked as
    'missing'.

    ****************************************************************
    The problem occurs due to additional properties that have
    been added to findings in AppScan Source 8.6.  The
    additional properties are considered when comparing
    findings, so the old findings do not match the new findings.
    

Problem conclusion

  • No plan to fix.  The new findings will not match the old
    findings, so they must be excluded in the newer version of
    AppScan Source.
