Upcoming in Dradis Pro v1.9: report template manager

In this post we introduce another new feature of the upcoming version of Dradis Professional Edition: the new report template manager. Our previous post on the Upcoming in Dradis Pro v1.9 series was about custom Word tables.

Why do we need a report template manager?

There are several use cases for being able to manage multiple different report templates: your organisation may use different report templates for different project types (e.g. a webapp assessment vs. a vulnerability scan), or maybe some of your clients want you to use their own reporting template, or maybe you are thinking about going freelance or being a subcontractor so you have to use different templates when you are contracting for different security service vendors. The reason doesn’t really matter, what matters is that from now on, you can forget about your multiple template requirements, work as you always work in your Dradis project and then when the time to generate the report with one click comes, you can pick the right template and generate a full featured report with just 1 click.

The new template manager complements the Export Manager that we introduced in the current version to allow for more complex multi-template workflows.

Screenshots

You can use the report template manager to easily drag and drop new template files and associate them with each of the export plugins (even the custom plugins you create):

Pro tip: if you are using Chrome, you can Ctrl+c and Ctrl+v to paste the file into your browser window.
