12.0 DSR – Delta Scan Results

latest update: 2021-06-17

A Delta Scan Result is the iteration between the latest scan and the previous scan and enables you to view the new defects that have been introduced between scans and also know which defects have been fixed. DSRs are best used iteratively within the SDLC by team leaders and developers to shift-process-left enabling teams to detect defects and remediate earlier.

A DSR can be triggered from Xcalscan or from CI/CD or IDE plug-ins. The results can be seen either in the CI/CD or IDE environment or in Xcalscan. When a DSR is available to view it is highlighted in the project view on My Projects and on the scan results page (View DSR).

The DSR page highlights the details of the comparison scans including the GIT Commit ID. It shows changes from the previous scan with the total number of new defects and the total number of fixed defects. The detailed list can be filtered by new or fixed.

The DSRs are divided into three sections.

  • New defects that have been identified since the last scan.
  • Fixed defects that have been remediated since the last scan.
  • And any outstanding defects that have not changed since the last DSR.

The DSR page functions in the same way as the scan results page enabling you to drill down into the details of a defect and/or assign it to team members.

In the tables for “New” and “Outstanding” defects it is possible to see when a defect was first detected and the date and time will be shown. In the table for “Fixed” it is possible to see when a defect was first fixed and the date and time will be shown.
