Removing and Archiving Targets

Crowdcontrol provides the ability to remove and archive targets.

Targets may be removed from a single program in the program settings page; this can be done when you decide to adjust your program’s scope. Removing a target from a program will also remove it from the program brief visible to the researchers. As a result, researchers will no longer be able to submit against this target.

Targets may be archived and removed from the platform entirely in the target directory page; this can be done when you decide to remove access to use a target in any program. Archiving a target from the platform will disable the ability for a Program Admin to add that target to a program brief.

Archiving Targets: Archiving a target will remove it from the platform. Upon doing so, all existing data and submissions attached to the archived target will be accessible within the platform. In addition, this target may be restored after it has been archived.

Limited Role Based Access:

The ability to remove targets are limited to specific role based access:

  • Only Organization Owners and Program Admin may remove or edit a target on a single program.
  • Only Organization Owners may remove targets entirely from the platform in the target directory page.

Removing Target from a Program

Removing a target from a program will effectively change the scope and bounty brief.

To remove a target from a program follow the steps below:

  1. Navigate to the Program Scope page.

    To navigate to the Program Scope page, first, select the Program Settings page at the top of the Crowdcontrol navbar. Then select the Program Scope tab as seen in the image below.

    settings-program-scope

  2. To the right of the target that you wish to remove, select the delete icon to proceed with removing the selected target.

    delete-icon

    Removal of Program Targets: If your program has yet to launch live, both targets in and out of scope may be removed. If your program is currently running live, ONLY out of scope targets may be removed.

  3. Confirm removal of target.

    A confirmation window will appear, to proceed with removing the target from the program select the red remove button.

    Removing a Target: Removing a target from a program will no longer allow researcher to submit vulnerabilities against the removed target until the target has been re-added to the program.

    At this point in time, the target will be removed from the program brief, however, existing submissions attached to this target will be available within the submission inbox. In addition, all submissions attached to this target will be included in all metrics presenting in the Insights page.

Archiving Targets

Archiving a target at the organization level will completely remove it from the platform and disable the use of the target on any program.

To archive a target follow the steps below:

  1. Navigate to the Target Directory.

    To navigate to the Target Directory page, first, select the Profile icon on the Crowdcontrol navbar. Then select the Target Directory tab seen in the image below.

    target-directory

  2. Click Archive.

    To the right of the target that you wish to delete, select the delete icon to proceed with archiving the selected target.

    archive-icon

    Archiving a Target: Archiving a target in the Target Directory will completely remove the target from the platform. Existing submissions and data attached to this target will be saved and accessible within the platform. This target may be restored to the platform in the target directory.

  3. Confirm and proceed to archive.

    A confirmation window will appear, to proceed with archiving the target from the platform select the red archive button.

    confirm-archive

    Archiving a target from the platform will no longer allow Program Admins to add this target to a program. As a result, researcher will no longer be able to submit vulnerabilities against the archived target until the target has been restored to the platform.
