Add Custom Report Templates

Issue reports in Hive are customizable. You can download and change existing report templates as well as to upload your own report templates.

Note: only Hive administrators can upload new templates.

Upload new report templates

To add new report template:

  1. Go to Report templates tab;
  2. Click Upload template and add a template from your computer;
  3. A new template appears in the list of templates.

Now you can select your own template for Issue report.

Report template format

To create your own .docx template download default report template template.docx from Report templates tab. Change it as you need and upload it to the Platform.

Note: we recommend changing the name of the template.docx file before uploading it back to the Platform. When loading templates with the same name, the platform will automatically change the file names by adding the date and time to the files, for example [2021-04-06T15: 49: 23.895Z] template.docx.


An %ISSUES_AREA% variable is used to export issues to the report. When adding this variable to the template, a new section Testing results will be added to the report. This section includes Found vulnerabilities list with the following information:

Note: all issues in the project will be exported to the report. By default, issues in the report are distributed by score: from critical to low.

  • Issue name
  • Issue score

    • Criticality
    • Probability
  • General Description

  • Risk description
  • Technical description

    • Vulnerable host(s)
    • HTTP Requests
    • Images
  • Steps to Reproduce

  • Recommendations

The issue report includes images in the formats that are supported by .docx (png, jpg, bmp, jpeg). Files in other formats that can be attached to the issues will not be exported to the report.


Important! Do not change the style IDs and style names of the template.docx. Currently, the report generator supports only predefined style names.

You can change styles settings of the headers, lists, paragraphs, tables, images and other. But the style names and IDs must always remain the same.

The following style names and IDs are mandatory:

H1 H1 Paragraph Level 1 headers
