What are Application Security Module Stacks?

Stacks is an Application Security Module offering that allows users to group and organize their applications and risk groups into single combined views. There is a set of APIs that handles the basic Create, Read, Show and Update functions for users to programmatically interact with Stacks. For more information, refer to the API endpoints here.

You can create a stack to pair applications and risk groups into a single view. You can create as many stacks as you would like to compare and contrast different stacks performance and risk. Risk groups and applications can be added to different stacks multiple times.StackCard.png

The Stack card above shows the average scores of the risk groups and applications included in the stack. It also shows how many risk groups and applications are included in each grouping.

Create a Stack

1. Click AppSec > Stacks.



2. Click Add Stack.


3. In the Create Stack window, add a Name, the risk groups that you want to include, and the applications that you want to include in the stack.

Note: When you successfully create a stack, a banner message displays at the top of the screen.

Card View vs Detail View

There are two different viewing options in Stacks.

Card View

Stacks will appear in a card view similar to VM Dashboard. Each stack card will summarize risk groups and applications scores.


Detail View

Clicking on the name of the stack or the View Stack button will take you to the individual stack view. Each individual stack has its own summary near the top of the page, that includes the overall score of the scoped stack’s risk groups, and the overall score of the scoped stack’s applications.

Edits and deletion can be done from this view too. Hovering over the selected stack name will show “Edit” and “Delete” options as a pencil and trashcan respectively.
