Known side effects

· When uninstalling AppScan Enterprise on Windows 2012, the following services may appear as registered in the Services.msc dialog:

· IBM Security AppScan Enterprise Server
· IBM Security AppScan Enterprise Alert Service
· IBM Security AppScan Enterprise Agent Service

The associated files are removed during the uninstall process, but when you attempt to install AppScan Enterprise again, the installation will register the new services if these entries are still there.

You can manually remove the services by performing the following commands from the Windows command-line:
· sc delete "IBM Security AppScan Enterprise Server"
· sc delete "WFAlertSvc"
· sc delete "WFAgentSvc"
· To access the new interactive REST APIframework, the AppScan Enterprise instance name must be called 'ase' (for example, https://<domain>:9443/<b>ase</b>/api/pages/apidocs.html).
· Use Microsoft Silverlight with Internet Explorer 8.0 to properly render Dojo functionality.
· When a scan job only has a recorded login (no Manual Explore or Starting URLs), the scan will not crawl below that page. Add at least one URL to the Manual Explore or Starting URL of the What to Scan page.
· If you upgrade a database from pre-8.8, and then click any existing job, the scan log will be empty. Rerun your jobs to generate a new scan log.
When editing the Edit Application Profile Template page in IE 8/9, changes are not saved. Navigate away from the field you are editing and then back to it. Save your changes. Alternatively, upgrade your browser to IE11 or Firefox 38 ESR
