Manage Your Personal Account

The user settings enable you to configure your personal account

Access Your Personal Account

To access your personal account, click in the upper-right corner of the Scans page, and then select User Settings.

On the User Settings page, you can change your personal settings and preferences.

  1. In the lower-right corner of the PROFILE section, click Set password.
    Nexploit sends you an email with further instructions.

Set Time and Date

All your activity on Nexploit, scan runs and details are time-bound. That is why to ensure proper management of the activity log and scans history, you need to verify the date and time settings.

The current date and time are shown at the top of the DATE SETTINGS section. To change the time and date formats, follow these steps:

  1. From the Time Zone drop-down list, select your time zone.
  2. From the Date Format drop-down list, select the format for date indication.
  3. Select the first day of the week and the time format using the relative buttons.

Set Your Notification Preferences

You can define the events related to a certain object type that will be posted in your feed (activity log). Nexploit also allows you to select the types of events you will be notified about via email as well as to deny some specific warnings.

To enable or disable such event notifications, you simply need to select or clear the relative check boxes in the FEED SETTINGS, EMAIL NOTIFICATION SETTINGS and CONSENTS sections. After you complete the selection, click Save.

Manage Your Personal API Keys (Authentication Tokens)

To enable some Nexploit operations and integrations, you will need an authentication token (API key). You can either create an API key in the Organization tab or on your User Settings page. To create a personal API key, follow these steps:

  1. In the MANAGE YOUR USER API KEYS section, click + Create API key.
  1. Assign the API key a name, select which access scopes to allow it and which type of actions (such as read or write) it is permitted to perform. Read more about the access scopes here.
  1. Click Create.

    On the popup, copy the generated key and save it to a safe place since as soon as you navigate away from this popup, you will not be able to restore this key.
    The created keys without the entire values are listed in the MANAGE YOUR API KEYS section.
