I konw how to create a distribution group.But I don't know to link the distribution group to a WAS scan when I configured the scan..
Have you got details ?
Also as mentioned in this thread, Where is the mailing list defined ? , Distribution Groups are used in Scheduled Reporting for Web Application Reports, Scan Reports and Scorecard Reports.
Upon each Scan completion, anyone with access/authorization to the web app, will receive a scan completion email if the option is checked and the user has chosen or has been set up to receive those reports.
Actually, I was wondering how are selecting the default person emailed just after launching a scan.
By comparing, I suppose these are my users with "Manager" role.
Am I right ?
You get a scan status email when you launch a scan because you are the Application owner as defined in the Web App Record... You may choose to edit it and point it at a mailing list email-id too.
It is not necessarily users with Manager role who get the email. It is all users with permission to view the target web application. Each user can turn off the notifications if desired in their user profile.
