Upcoming in Dradis Pro v1.9: custom Word tables

Dradis Pro v1.9 is going to be packed with useful upgrades. One of the features we’ve been working on is the ability to generate easily generate custom Word tables.

Dradis itself has had table support for a very long time, however, the table formatting was lost in the report generation process. Not any more, starting in v1.9 all the tables in your Dradis project will be recreated in your final report.

Here are some examples of beautiful tables generated with Dradis, note that you can of course customize the look & feel of each table individually. The styles can go from the more simple ones adapted to the rest of your branding:

Tables can also appear anywhere in the document, for instance, below we show how you can keep the scoping information into your Dradis project and then exported to Word using a slightly modified Word table design:

Mixing tables with plugins

We’ve also updated some of our import plugins to generate information in tabular format. For instance, the Nmap plugin now produces a nice service summary table for each host. You can use this feature to produce a nice Hosts and Services Summary section in your report:

This is just one of the many features we’re preparing for the next release. Watch this space for updates over the coming days!
