Re: How to reset the the False positives and Ignored Issues
For WebInspect 10.0, the current public release:
To reinstate False Positives you have marked in a scan, you would open the Scan Info section and its False Positives sub-heading. These links are found in the vertical navigational bar you see in the center of the UI when you have the scan open on-screen. Select the FP items you wish to reverse and select the option for "Mark as Vulnerability".
To reinstate Ignored items, please use these instructions located in the Help guide.
Recover Deleted Items
Glossary Item Box
When you remove a session or "ignore" a vulnerability, WebInspect deletes the item from the Navigation pane (in both the Site and Sequence views) and from the Vulnerabilities tab in the Summary pane. It also omits those items from any reports you may generate.
The number of deleted items is displayed on the Dashboard (under the Scan category). You can recover removed sessions and ignored vulnerabilities using the following procedure.
Click the highlighted number that appears next to the Deleted Items header.
The Recover Deleted Items window displays a list of deleted items.
Click the drop-down list to toggle between ignored vulnerabilities and removed sessions.
Select the check box next to one or more items you want to recover.
To view detailed information about the items, select Show details when selected.
Click Recover and then click Yes when prompted to verify your selection.
Recovered vulnerabilities reappear in the Navigation pane in both the Site and Sequence views (along with their parent sessions) and also reappear in the Vulnerabilities tab in the Summary pane. Recovered sessions also reappear in the Navigation pane along with any child sessions and their vulnerabilities.
