Getting started with Astra for API's

You can easily set up the Astra Dashboard in a few simple steps using the Scanner Setup workflow. Just provide the necessary details about your target, allowing the scanner to log in, optimize for your technology, and achieve the highest scan coverage possible.

Initiate the workflow by clicking on the Get started option.

Step 1: Specify the scope name of your API and your company

To proceed, you must provide the name of your target and your company. After entering this information, click on the Next button.

Step 2: Updating Base URL

Here, you have to update the base URL that needs to be scanned, click on the Next button.

The base URL is the initial part of the API URL. Typically all API requests to that API will use the same base URL.

Step 3: Uploading definition files

Here, you have to update the Postman collection files, environmental files, and OpenAPI documentation file. Then, click on "Next."
