Introducing "Ignore Rules" To HTTPS Reporter

This handy new feature in HTTPS Reporter allows you to block out URI reports from irrelevant sites or browser plug-ins, so you only see relevant issues that require attention in your report list.

How It Works

To use this feature log in to your HTTPS Reporter account and select a domain to see a list of reports. On the right hand side is a new Ignore column with a button to set this URI to be ignored based on an EXACT URI  match or a PARTIAL match, which you select in the dropdown option.

HTTPS CSP Violations - Ignore by Exact or Partial match on URI

Illustration: Select EXACT or PARTIAL matching when adding a rule.

 

For example, use PARTIAL matching by simply entering a part of the URI, such as the main part of the domain name, to stop all different variations of the URI coming through as reports.

Once the URI as added, then all future reports are blocked. You can "un-block" the URI by clicking on the Config button when you have selected one of your domains, where you can also see a list of all ignored URI's and the number of times reports have been ignored from them.

Press the Config button to access blocked URI's
