Manage your targets

There are 4 ways to add new targets in a workspace

1. Automatically from the tool page

A target is automatically added to your current workspace when you run a scan against it from the tool page. It will be suggested in the target field what sort of target you need to add for that particular scanner: IP, hostname or URL.

2. Manually from the /targets page

You can add a single target by clicking on the +Add button

3. Bulk import via a txt file

You can add multiple targets at once by importing a .txt file. Make sure that the text file you are uploading contains one target per line, optionally followed by a description.

4. From the results of a discovery scan

Targets can also be added from scan results. For example, Find Subdomains. You can select the results by clicking the checkbox next to them and click the Add to Targets button so they will be automatically added to your Targets.

Note: The same target added in two different workspaces will be counted twice.

What if I reach more targets than allowed by my plan?

You have the option to delete some of your targets (including their scan results) and add new ones instead. Or you can upgrade to a higher plan, which allows you to add more targets and keep your scan history.

From the /targets page you can delete one or several targets by selecting the checkbox right next to it and clicking Delete. Be careful though, deleting a target will also delete all it’s associated scans.

What if I added a target in the wrong workspace?

You can move one or several targets to another workspace by clicking the Move button.

Can I change the name of a target?

No, you can only Edit the description for a single target. If you need to change a target name, you should delete that target and add a new one with the correct name.
