New in Dradis Pro v4.5

Dradis Framework is a collaboration and reporting tool for information security teams to manage and deliver the results of security assessments, in less time and with less frustration than manual methods.

CSV Importer

Dradis can now import CSV files into projects! Some vulnerability scanners produce output in CSV format rather than e.g. XML or JSON. You can now import these (and other) CSV files into Dradis, and configure which column to assign to which field in your Dradis projects on a per-file basis. Simply go to “Upload”, select the CSV importer, upload a file, and you will be redirected to an interface to assign data to fields. As with other plugins, you can create Issue, Evidence, or Node data and fields.

This is v1 of the CSV importer, so we look forward to your feedback on what works for you and what you would like to see in the future from this feature!

Note that for the sake of internal naming consistency, we have renamed the CSV exporter plugin with this change, so if you have the CSV exporter installed, you will need to reinstall the plugin as dradis-csv_export.

JIRA bulk send

Do you use our JIRA integration? If so, you can now bulk-send issues to JIRA. Simply select multiple issues from your project in the “All Issues” view, and click “Send to JIRA”:

That will send all your selected issues to the Dradis-JIRA interface. Pick the destination project, issue type, and other required fields for each item, and you’re done!

Bug fixes and quality-of-life improvements

Another focus of the v4.5 release is working through some bug reports and lower-level requests we have accumulated over time.

Bug fixes include multiple items relating to attachment validation and export, Node labels linking to external resources (so e.g. clicking on a Node label of “” will no longer redirect you to Google instead of the Node in Dradis), and the Rules Engine matching against IssueLibrary entries without trailing empty lines.

Quality-of-life improvements include adding Revision History for Content Blocks and improved error messages in the Output Console on Word report export. Check our release notes for more detail!
