Summary: this pages describes all analysis configuration options that are available for the ASP technology.

AIP Console

AIP Console exposes the Technology configuration options once a version has been accepted/imported, or an analysis has been run. Click ASP to display the available options:

Technology settings are organized as follows:

  • Settings specific to the technology for the entire Application
  • List of Analysis Units (a set of source code files to analyze) created for the Application
    • Settings specific to each Analysis Unit (typically the settings are the same as at Application level) that allow you to make fine-grained configuration changes.

You should check that settings are as required and that at least one Analysis Unit exists for the specific technology.

Files to AnalyzeThis section displays a list of the file extensions for both web server and client, that are included in the current file filter for your source code analysis. Only files that match these file extensions will be included in the analysis.
Default ScriptingThese option enables you to select the Default Scripting Language for your client-side and server-side files. Use the drop down list box to choose between:
  • VBScript
  • JavaScript

It is possible to identify the default client scripting language by finding a ASP or HTML file with a SCRIPT tag that does not have a language definition (do a search for "<SCRIPT>") and examine the language to determine if it is JavaScript or VBScript.

For an application that mixes both languages, you will need to find a file with <SCRIPT> tags that DO NOT have a language specified and <SCRIPT> tags that DO have a language specified. You then need to select the language NOT specified in the <SCRIPT> tag as the default language.

DependenciesDependencies are configured at Application level for each technology and are configured between individual Analysis Units/groups of Analysis Units (dependencies between technologies are not available as is the case in the CAST Management Studio). You can find out more detailed information about how to ensure dependencies are set up correctly, in Advanced onboarding - review analysis configuration and execution for AIP Console.
Analysis Units

Lists all Analysis Units created. You can configure the same technology settings at Analysis Unit level if required - click the Analysis Unit to view it's technology settings (by default they match the default settings application wide technology settings):

Analyze a specific Analysis Unit on its own, specifically for testing purposes.

Disable or enable the analysis of a specific Analysis Unit, when the next Application level analysis/snapshot is run. By default all Analysis Units are always set to enableWhen an Analysis Unit is set to disable, this is usually a temporary action to prevent an Analysis Unit from being analyzed.

Auto-configuration validation

Technology / Application level

Using the Technology level or Application level options, validate the settings for ASP packages. Make any update as required. These settings apply to the Technology or Application as a whole (i.e. all Analysis Units):

Analysis Unit level

To inspect the auto-generated analysis configuration, you should review the settings in each Analysis Unit - they can be accessed through the Application editor:

Technology options

The available options for configuring an analysis are described below. Note that some options are not available at specific levels (Technology/Application/Analysis Unit):

Source Settings

This tab shows the location of each type of source code in the ASP Analysis Unit - this is determined automatically by the CAST Delivery Manager Tool. You should, however, review the configuration and make any changes you need:


Web Client File ExtensionsThis section displays a list of the file extensions that are included in the current file filter for your source code analysis. Only files that match these file extensions will be included in the analysis.
Also use Application Root Path for Web Client FilesIf you select this option, the Application Root Path defined in the General tab will be used as a source for the web client files. If you wish to add additional source files use the option described below.

Use this section to include or exclude specific source files for the Analysis Unit for analysis purposes.

  • Use the     buttons to include or exclude specific Source Files (in the case of files, only files matching the choices made in Web Server File Extensions above will be considered) or Source Folders (folders are searched recursively). By default CAST will automatically suggest the Deployment Folder set in the Current Version tab (Application editor) for your Package when adding new source code folders or files.
  • Use the  button to remove an existing entry
  • Use the  button to edit an existing entry
  • If this Analysis Unit is automatically defined use the  button to reset the list to the entries defined by the CAST Delivery Manager Tool

If this Analysis Unit is automatically defined, then any auto defined entries will be read only.


The settings in this tab govern how the source code is handled by the analyzer:
