In Probely, a target defines the scope and behavior of a scan on a website, an application, or an API.
Each target has a URL that defines the scope of the scan and also the configuration of the scan behavior as, for example:

  • The authentication mechanism for the scanner to be able to log in.
  • The scan profile defining how the scan is performed.
  • The integration with third-party systems, like Jira, to synchronize scan results.
