QAInspect still an orderable product?Open in a New Window

I can't find any reference to QAInspect on current HP SW product pages or sites.


Is it still an orderable product?


I'm wondering if it has become part of another product group or portfolio.

And we haven't seen any updates for QAI in quite a while.


Thanks for any hints or insight!

QA Inspect through QC aborts when test executesOpen in a New Window



We're trying to get a QA Inspect test to run on QC but not having much luck.

When we try to run the test locally, the execution log comes back with two rows - first one indicates the test was aborted, and the second line indicates there were "No Available Hosts".

Yet, when we run a QTP test on the same machine (again with Run Test Locally selected) the QTP test connects with the local host and executes.

We have QAInspect 9.20, QTP 10.0 and QC 10.0

Secure Development Tool Adoption Study: Participants NeededOpen in a New Window

Hello everyone,

I am a Ph.d. student majoring in Computer Science at NCSU. Currently I am doing a research on why developer uses secure development tools (e.g., HP Fortify is one kind of secure development tool) and why not. The most important reason why we do this study is because most of these tools are extremely underused, and we want to find out why. The result of this study will benefit our community in a way that either help the toolsmiths to build a better tool or help the sellers to better advertise the tool.

As for data collection, I need to conduct interviews with software developers to ask them about their past experience with these tools. The interview will last about 1 hour. It will be conducted through Skype or phone call directly at your best convenience.

I really need your help!!!
Please contact me if you are a software developer or a manager who is supervising developers in a software company.
My email address is: sxiao@ncsu.edu

Your help is highly appreciated.

Best Regards,
Shundan Xiao


QAInspect 9.20 Upgrade TipsOpen in a New Window

The below tips are for new users or current QAInspect users upgrading to the latest version of QAInspect 9.20:


  1.  After installing QAInspect 9.20, a shortcut to QAInspect will be on your desktop.  (For upgrading users, this will replace the QAInspect Management Tool shortcut but you can still access the tool from the Start Menu or launching QAInspect -> Project Settings.)


2.  The database settings for scans and reports have been moved from being an advanced scan level settings to being a machine level setting located at QAInspect -> Application Settings->Database.  All QAInspect tests ran on a given machine will use the same database settings set above.  Please configure your database settings prior to running scans.  The database default is SQL Server Express.


3.  If you plan to use QAInspect 9.20 in a new QC/ALM project, launch QAInspect ->Project Settings and log into the new project as project administrator to integrate QAInspect with the new project prior to running scans.


4.  If you plan on using QAInspect 9.20 in an existing QC/ALM project with current QAInspect 8.0 tests, you should first backup your project and database and then proceed to run the QAInspect Upgrade Tool located in the start menu prior to running scans.  (You should not use QAInspect 8.0 and QAInspect 9.20 for the same project.)


5.  If you plan on using QAInspect 9.20 with an existing SQL Server database for QAInspect 8.0, then you should backup your database and then proceed to run the database upgrade scripts in one of two ways:


a.  The product will prompt you that the database needs to be upgraded.  Select OK and the product will attempt to do so automatically.  If you encounter errors afterwards, go to the download page:  https://download.hpsmartupdate.com/qainspect/ and have your DBA manually run the QAInspect_8.0_to_9.2_ upgrade script.


b.  Have your DBA to manually run the QAInspect_8.0_to_9.2_ upgrade script on the existing database or create a new SQL Server database and run the QAInspect_9.20_New_Scan Database_create_script.


6.  Read the QAInspect 9.20 Release notes for Known Issues and Recommendations: 




QAInspect 9.20 Released!Open in a New Window

HP Application Security Center team is very proud to announce the official release of QAInspect 9.20! This release is packed full of new features and enhancements including the latest WebInspect 9.20 scan engine.


Here are just a few highlights of the 9.20 release:


Latest WebInspect 9.20 scan engine offers improved web service support, enhanced website crawling technology, new blind SQL Injection engine, and DOM-Based Cross-Site Scripting just to name a few.


 QAInspect Real-Time is achieved through integration with HP SecurityScope, an agent installed on the target web server.  It provides application information that QAInspect otherwise could not obtain.


TruClient for Login Macros has new log-in web macro recording/play-back technology where user interactions are captured (not traffic) and replayed making log-in playback much more accurate and compatible with sophisticated web applications.


Support for Common Weakness Enumeration (CWE) is an industry standard vulnerability classification system from the MITRE Corporation that provides a unified, measurable set of software weaknesses.  These are included whenever you view vulnerability.


 You may find the full release notes here:




To get started with QAInspect 9.20, you can go to the following site where you will find a download link, quick start guide, and more:

Thank you for your continued support!

Getting QA Inspect hooked up with QCOpen in a New Window

Hi all,


My objective: to get ASC trial env set up for my customer.


1) My customer with my direction did buy WI and now want to move further and buy other components of ASC.

2) I'm new to QI and QC. I know setting up a test env and get QI hooked up with QC is far more complicated than WI.

3) I got QI and QC downloaded.

4) What I'm missing is a comprehensive document that can explain the mentality and logics behind the QC and QI specific test environment and how these components operate with each other. Can anyone point me to a doc?

5) It was said that WI when finding an issue, it can send a defect report to QC/QI. Can anyone tell me how this is done and how QI/QC take care of such defect? A thorough doc is appreciated.


Thanks. Shar

Using ASC compliance policies with QC requirementsOpen in a New Window

The attached document outlines a procedure that actual be employed by QAInspect users, and possibly WebInspect or AMP users, for measuring security compliance to quality in Quality Center. The procedure relies upon manual updates of test statuses, but does address to some degree the problems.
