Start new analysis | Mendix

Starting a new analysis for a Mendix application can be done in multiple ways, depending on what has been configured for your organization.

NOTE: Only users that have the ‘Contributor’ or ‘Admin’ role are able to start a new analysis.

Step 1

Navigate to the ‘My Portals’ page by clicking ‘My Portals’ in the menu on the left side of your screen. This will open a page that shows you all current scans and their results. This can be either in a ‘Tile view’ or in a ‘Grid view’.

Step 2

Select the portal for which you would like to trigger an analysis. This will open a ‘detail view’ on the right side of your screen.

Step 3A – Mendix API trigger

If the ‘Mendix API’ trigger has been configured for your organization, simply click the ‘Start analysis now‘ button to trigger a (new) scan.

Step 3B – Manual .MPK upload

If the ‘Manual .MPK Upload’ trigger has been configured for your organization, first click the little ‘cog’ icon.

After that, use the ‘Upload sources’ section to upload a .MPK file. Once the file is uploaded, click the ‘Submit sources’ button. Your scan will now be started.

Step 4

Running a new scan can take anywhere from 15 to 60 minutes (approximately), depending on the size of the application. Once the analysis is ready, you can open scan results by selecting a ‘Scan Date’ (you can select two scan dates to view a comparison between scans). Next,  click the ‘View Analysis Results’ button to open the analysis results (Dashboard).
