Adding a Scan Comment

The API client can add a comment to scan results. If there is already a comment, it will be overwritten.

CxSDKWebService.UpdateScanComment Method

public CxWSBasicRepsonse UpdateScanComment(
   string sessionID,
   long ScanID,
   string Comment


  • sessionID: The current Session ID.

  • ScanID: The ScanID of the scan to which to add the comment


To add a comment to the results of a scan with known ID of 350:

internal void Main(string [] args)
    String sessionID = args[0];
    CxSDKWebServiceSoapClient cxSDKProxy = new CxSDKWebServiceSoapClient();

    long scanID = 350;

    //Create the comment
    string scanComment = string.Concat("The Scan ID of this scan is" , scanID.ToString());

    CxWSBasicRepsonse response =cxSDKProxy.UpdateScanComment(sessionID, scanID, scanComment);
    UpdateSucceded = response.IsSuccesfull;

For more mapping information, refer to API Mapping (SOAP to REST). You can also find a summary of our REST APIs here.
