Getting Started with DefectDojo OWASP Edition

Downloading and installing DefectDojo

git clone

This command uses `git` to clone the django-DefectDojo repository hosted on GitHub. After executing this command, you'll have a directory named `django-DefectDojo` in your current location containing the code of the project.

cd django-DefectDojo

This command moves you into the `django-DefectDojo` directory that was just cloned in the previous step. This directory contains the source code and other related files of the `django-DefectDojo` project.


Now it is time to build the DefectDojo application for running in a Docker environment.



Next is the command for running the application

./ postgres-redis

For other profiles besides postgres-redis look at Github Docs.

To get the admin credentials, run the following fetch command (this may take up to 3 mins to complete).

docker-compose logs initializer | grep "Admin password:"
