Watcher HTML Report

Nov 7, 2012 at 1:07 PM


I wanted to check, if there are any plans for improving the HTML report that Watcher generates?

Even though the HTML report does have all the relevant data, it is not presentable. For example, if I have to emphasize a program manager who doesn't have any knowledge in security about the bugs, having a HTML report with metrics (no. of high severity bugs, low severity bugs), along with the other details about be helpful. Sometimes, I do a print-screen of Results Tab or I prepare the report manually.

I agree, the HTML report looks like crap, but I don't have the time to work on it presently.  As an alternative I suggest using the XML report, and applying your own XSLT stylesheet to it.  That would give your report a custom look that you could control.  Thanks for bringing this issue up, if anyone wants to contribute to improve the HTML reporting I'd be happy to review their submission!
