Welcome to Bugcrowd's Product Documentation Center

You'll find comprehensive guides and documentation to help you start working with Bugcrowd as quickly as possible.

Generating the Program Report

The Program Report provides you with clear insight into how your bounty or vulnerability disclosure program is performing. It is a PDF report that enables you to easily share performance metrics with stakeholders in your organization and to provide your customers and auditors with the information they need to understand your compliance posture. If you are running an ongoing program, the Program Report will deliver you with the information you need to find key data points and trends, so you can assess the success and value of your program.

Program Report for On-Demand Programs

Program Reports can only be generated by customers with ongoing programs. If you are an running an on-demand program, Bugcrowd will continue to generate the Program Report and deliver it to you at the end of your program.
