DQM Javascript scanning Beta Program

We are pleased to announce that the Crownpeak Digital Quality Management (DQM) team are making dashboards using our JavaScript Scanner available for interested users, who would like to take part in our Beta Program.

The JavaScript Scanner Beta Program is open to existing Crownpeak clients who are administrators of JavaScript websites, that they would like DQM to scan.

Is there any cost involved in joining the program?

There is no cost to join the program and the JavaScript dashboard that will be set up will not count towards your existing contractual agreements for DQM. We do, however, ask for a small amount of your time to provide us regular feedback on the scan results seen in DQM.

What sort of feedback are you looking for?

Most importantly, it would be useful to know if the scanner is picking up all the pages in your website. DQM provides a downloadable inventory of all pages for each website. Find this in the “WEBSITE” section, under “Inventory” -> “Web pages”.

We would also like to know if you see any unexpected behaviour in the platform, specifically when looking at the results of checkpoints.

If there are any enhancements you would like to see – things that you think the JavaScript Scanner cannot do, but you would like it to – we would also appreciate that useful feedback.

Will I see the same results in DQM as the current HTML scanner?

The JavaScript Scanner works very similarly to the current HTML Scanner. There are, however, some known limitations to the current functionality:

  • Currently we are only able to scan HTML assets. This means the inventory section will not show other assets like PDFs, images and CSS files. This also means checkpoints will not report on non-HTML assets.
  • We are currently not able to report on broken external links.
  • We currently support scanning publicly facing websites and have made progress for websites with form based logins. Scanning websites behind a basic authentication login is currently not available.
  • The Page Analyser will show the results of checkpoints and reports in Source view only.

Will it work on all JavaScript websites?

Currently the JavaScript Scanner is intended for public facing websites with multiple pages built using JavaScript. If your website does not fall into this category, we can investigate if we can support your requirements.

What do I need to do in order to join the Beta Program?

You will need to create a support case through the Community Portal and request to be part of the “DQM JavaScript scanner Beta Program” ”. We would also need to know the URL of the website to scan.

If you do not have access to create a case please request for Support Case Access
