Researcher Documentation

Welcome to the researcherdocs developer hub. You'll find comprehensive guides and documentation to help you start working with researcherdocs as quickly as possible, as well as support if you get stuck. Let's jump right in!

Get Started

Getting on the Leaderboard

Bugcrowd has two Leaderboards which show top statistics for the past month and for all-time.

  • The P1, P2 Leaderboard focuses only on P1 and P2 submissions, on programs which offer cash rewards.
  • The P1, P2, P3, and P4 Leaderboard focuses on all submissions with priorities of P1 - P4, on programs which offer cash rewards.
  • The Leaderboards list the top 10 researchers who have the most points in each category (P1, P2 and P1 - P4), respectively.

So, if you want to get on the Leaderboards, keep finding real, critical bugs. Over time, the more valid reports you have, the more points you'll earn. And the more points earned...well, you get the point.

Keep hunting!

Viewing the Leaderboard for the Previous Month

The researchers recognized on the monthly Leaderboards earned the most points during that month for each category.

The monthly Leaderboards reset at the beginning of every month, so every month presents a new opportunity to make it onto the Leaderboards. Happy hunting!

To see who has earned the most points on each Leaderboard the previous month, go to the Leaderboard section of your researcher profile.

The default view shows the P1, P2, P3, P4 monthly Leaderboard. To view the P1, P2 Leaderboard, simply select it from the available dropdown menu.

Viewing the All-Time Leaderboard

The all-time Leaderboards show the top 10 researchers for each category who have earned the most points since the beginning of Bugcrowd time. These are the hardest working, most active, and most awesome researchers in the Crowd.

To see who has the most total points, go to one of the Leaderboards and choose All Time.
