Nodes are containers, similar to "folders" in a file system.
Most of the information in a Dradis project is associated with a Node including: notes, attachments, and evidence.
Depending on the type of security assessment you're working on, you'll want to structure your project in a different way. Here are two sample project structures:
Mobile app assessment
You can nest your nodes to create a tree structure.
Nodes are simply containers without any meaning attached to them. They can represent anything: hosts, wireless networks, areas of the attack surface, OWASP categories... you get the idea.
Add new root branches to the tree using the
+ symbol in the sidebar:
In the pop-up that appears, select Add one to add a single top-level Node to your project. Give the node a label and select an Icon if desired. Then, click Add to create the node.
To create more than one node at the same time, select Add multiple. Type or paste a list of the nodes you want to create into the editor window. Make sure to add each new node on a new line. Select an Icon if desired, then click Add to create all of your nodes at the same time.
Once you click on a node, you can perform several operations using the top menu, including:
Once you click on a Node, in the contextual sidebar you'll find:
Use them as scrap paper, for random ideas, things you want to remember, TODOs, etc.
When you find a vulnerability, you typically associate it with a Node to link the Issue to the location (Node) in the project. In the Evidence section you include the specifics. For example:
The details you include in the evidence will depend of the type of assessment (and your report template).
These are files you upload. Typically: screenshots, raw console output captures, files you got from the server, etc.
Inside the Node you can also access a table of all the Evidence or all of the Notes associated with the Node. This allows you to Filter the table, display the fields that you need to see, as well as delete multiple instances of Evidence at the same time.
There is also a Methodology tab where you can add a node-level methodology.
