In case you want to add additional findings to the report (discovered manually or with other tools), you can add manual findings using a predefined template or start from scratch.

The finding editor lets you format text, add evidence by pasting images or selecting from files, adding code snippets, and more.

When you finished editing the finding, you can click Add and it will be included in the findings list.

Finding Templates allows you to have predefined descriptions, risks, and recommendations for findings. You can use the templates when you manually add new findings to your Findings list. There are some predefined templates but you can also add your own templates for manually discovered findings or from findings generated by other tools.

If you want to edit a finding discovered by one of the scanners, you can clone the finding, creating an identical copy. You can then modify the copy as you wish by changing its description, evidence, risk level, etc.

Remember the name of the finding you wish to clone, and use the search field, as the cloned finding will be displayed according to your current sorting rule for the findings table and will not show next to the original.
