To add a target, just follow these steps:

Step 1: Go to the targets page

From the targets list, click on the ADD button to open the "Add target" form.

Step 2: Fill in the "Add target" form

Fill in the Name and URL of the target. If you want to scan a standalone API without a supporting web application, select the API target option and provide the API Schema before submitting the form. Learn more about that here.

Optionally, you can also add Labels to help you easily identify that target later on. Additionally, if you want to scan an internal application without the need to expose it on the Internet or even to our IP addresses, you can also assign a Scanning Agent to the target. Learn more about that here.

Step 3: Once you are done, submit the form

When submitting the form, we will check the connectivity to your target; if your target is unreachable, we will allow you to bypass that warning and add the target regardless. However, bear in mind that we will need to be able to reach your target in order to scan it.
