Projects 101

The project is the basic unit of work in Dradis Pro, each security assessment you work on is represented as a different project in Dradis.

Elements of a project

Each Dradis project consists of:

Issues
Represent vulnerabilities or findings. These are the things you'll end up including in your report.
People
Each project is assigned a team (even if it is a team-of-one). Only people assigned to the project can work on it.
Methodologies
Checklists of tasks you need to perform. Great to ensure you follow the same steps across all projects of a given kind.
Nodes
Containers, similar to "folders". It's how you structure your project. In a network assessment, they'll represent hosts, in a code review, they can represent different sub-modules or libraries inside the app.
