Hello,
I am facing a weird issue while using Automation Framework in owasp/zap2docker-stable docker container..

My plan performs a basic passive scan (against a context) and generates a report.

With ZAP desktop app on my local machine, everything works fine and the report is generated successfully of the passive scan..

However, when I perform the exact same steps via docker, an empty report gets generated...The plan does run successfully but an empty report gets generated
Note:- Urls do get captured in ZAP before running the plan

Below is how my plan yaml looks like :-

---
env:
contexts:
- name: "MyAmazingContext.context"
urls:
includePaths: []
excludePaths: []
parameters:
failOnError: true
failOnWarning: false
progressToStdout: true
vars: {}
jobs:
- parameters: {}
name: "alertFilter"
type: "alertFilter"
- parameters:
scanOnlyInScope: true
enableTags: false
rules: []
name: "passiveScan-config"
type: "passiveScan-config"
- parameters: {}
name: "passiveScan-wait"
type: "passiveScan-wait"
- parameters:
template: "modern"
theme: "console"
reportDir: "/zap/wrk"
reportFile: "testReport.html"
reportTitle: "ZAP Scanning Report"
reportDescription: ""
displayReport: false
risks:
- "low"
- "medium"
- "high"
confidences:
- "low"
- "medium"
- "high"
- "confirmed"
sections:
- "passingrules"
- "instancecount"
- "alertdetails"
- "alertcount"
- "params"
- "chart"
- "statistics"
name: "report"
type: "report"

Thanks,
Nishant Shah

I had this very same issue when I started doing this. You will have to use something like the weekly release in order to get the reports to populate properly.
Hope that helps.

What action did you execute/include that would gave generated alerts? I don't see one.

Thanks for replying.
I will explain in detail what I am doing and how I am capturing actions..

Basically I want to integrate UI automation tool like Selenium/Cypress and ZAP..
So, this is what I am doing :-

1. Launching ZAP via docker container using the command :-
docker run -v $(pwd):/zap/wrk/:rw -u zap -p 8081:8081 -i owasp/zap2docker-stable zap.sh -daemon -host 0.0.0.0 -port 8081 -config api.addrs.addr.name=.* -config api.addrs.addr.regex=true -config api.disablekey=true

2. Execute cypress tests by providing a proxy port :- 8081 -- so that all the tests are parsed through 8081 where ZAP is running/listening...The base url of this cypress test is https://mytesturl.com

3. I can see the traffic been captured via ZAP (command line)

4. Now, I run the above mentioned Automation Framework Plan...Again mentioning it below :-
5. The report does get generated but its totally empty..

If I perform the same steps via ZAP desktop on my local...everything works fine
So, I am a bit confused..

Thanks,
Nishant Shah

Hi Nishant,

Sorry, I've only just looked at your AF plan in detail.
You are not actually exploring the app in your plan - thats why the report is empty :/
You configure the passive scanner and wait for it, but the passive scanner will not do anything on its own.
You need to explore the app before waiting for the passive scanner to complete, eg using one or both of the spider jobs, or importing an API definition.

Cheers,

Simon

Thanks Simon.
Is it mandatory to explore/spider the app in my plan itself?
What I am doing is...
1. I run ZAP in daemon mode via docker
2. I explore the app manually
3. I run the plan from command line via docker

I am expecting the plan to pickup the exploration happened in step 2...
Same thing if I do from ZAP desktop app, it works. So, I was expecting it to work via docker as well..

Thanks,
Nishant Shah

Yeah, but I suspect you are not doing _exactly_ the same things :)
When you're running from the desktop I'm guessing you are waiting for the Cypress tests to finish?
Thats not what you've told the plan to do.
The plan will just run straight through, probably before your tests even start.
I think that might be what you need.

Cheers,

Simon
