Understanding the Scan Status Messages

Static Analysis

Review the Veracode Static Analysis messages to determine the status of scans.

Scan status values appear in:

  • The Recent Applications list on the Applications page
  • In the In Progress section of the left navigation menu
  • In the individual application overview page

If an application has no status, then you have not requested a scan.

Module Selection Required

The prescan completed. The Select Modules page shows the modules. After you make the appropriate entry-point selections, submit the scan for analysis. For future scan requests, you can enable Auto Scan to skip this step.

If the Select Modules page shows an error message or no modules exist, an error occurred during prescan. Try one of these actions:

  • Click Retry Verification on the Select Modules page.
  • Adjust the submission to include only components supported for analysis and packaged as recommended by Veracode.
  • Contact Veracode Technical Support for further assistance.
Request Incomplete
Your request does not include some information. You must complete one or more steps in the scan request process before you can submit the request. These steps might involve uploading files, selecting modules, or obtaining vendor acceptance of a third-party scan request.
  1. Go to the Application Overview to review and edit your static analysis request.
  2. Run your scan again.
