To upload Hosts, Prism supports the following formats:

  • JSON – You can download an example file through the GUI
  • Nmap XML

Step 1: Create a project. Select ‘Projects’ from the navigation menu and click ‘+ New project’ in the top right-hand corner.


Step 2: Enter details for the Project.

At the moment, you can import results for the two different services supported by the platform: Penetration Testing and Managed Vulnerability Scanning.

Step 3: Once the Project is set up, you need to add Phases to it (or ‘scans’ if Managed Vulnerability Scanning is the service type). To do this, click ‘Add phase’. You can also edit your Project’s details from this page.
