# Dynamic Application Security Testing with GitLab CI/CD
This example shows how to run
[Dynamic Application Security Testing (DAST)](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dynamic_program_analysis)
on your project's source code by using GitLab CI/CD.

to perform an analysis on your running web application.
DAST is using the popular open source tool
[OWASP ZAProxy](https://github.com/zaproxy/zaproxy) to perform an analysis.
It can be very useful combined with [Review Apps](../review_apps/index.md).
## Example
All you need is a GitLab Runner with the Docker executor (the shared Runners on
GitLab.com will work fine). You can then add a new job to `.gitlab-ci.yml`,
......@@ -14,22 +15,26 @@ called `dast`:
```yaml
dast:
image: owasp/zap2docker-stable
variables:
website: "https://example.com"
script:
- mkdir /zap/wrk/
- /zap/zap-baseline.py -J gl-dast-report.json -t https://example.com || true
- /zap/zap-baseline.py -J gl-dast-report.json -t $website || true
- cp /zap/wrk/gl-dast-report.json .
artifacts:
paths: [gl-dast-report.json]
```
The above example will create a `dast` job in your CI pipeline and will allow
you to download and analyze the report artifact in JSON format.
The above example will create a `dast` job in your CI/CD pipeline which will run
the tests on the URL defined in the `website` variable (change it to use your
own) and finally write the results in the `gl-dast-report.json` file. You can
then download and analyze the report artifact in JSON format.
TIP: **Tip:**
Starting with [GitLab Enterprise Edition Ultimate][ee] 10.4, this information will
be automatically extracted and shown right in the merge request widget. To do
so, the CI job must be named `dast` and the artifact path must be
`gl-dast-report.json`.
