Upcoming in Dradis Pro v1.7: New interface

The release of Dradis Pro is getting closer. We’re in feature freeze now, just adding the finishing touches.

The new Dradis Pro v1.7 all-in-one view

One of the things I’m more excited about is the new interface we have created:

The focus is on simplifying access to the common tasks, those that you perform multiple times each day: creating Issues, adding notes, uploading attachments, etc.

The all-in-one view lets you see all your notes, issues and attachments in the same place, no need to go back and forth between the tabs.

Conveniently import from external sources

Another area that has been simplified is the interface to import notes from external sources. The steps before:

  1. Click on “Import note…” tab
  2. Select the external source from the drop down menu
  3. Select the filter (among those provided by this particular external source)
  4. Type in the search term and hit Enter
  5. Right-click on the results grid and select Import

The steps now:

  1. Click on the “All issue” node
  2. Enter search term in the appropriate box and hit Enter
  3. Click on “Add this issue”

Note how a given issue may be associated with multiple instances on a given host. For example, an Out-of-date Apache server can affect both tcp/80 and tcp/443
