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

Submission Page

The "Submissions" page provides a snapshot of the vulnerabilities you've reported.

From this page, you can:

Finding a Specific Submission

The "Submissions" page lets you see the current state of a submission, the number of comments, and if the submission was accepted, the amount of money and points rewarded.

Using the search bar on the page, you can select a pre-built filter to find submissions based on their current status or you can build your own by specifying exact variables.

If you need a help remembering some of the search operators, use the Search Options button to see a cheat sheet.

Monitor Submission Activity

To view a submission's details, click on the desired submission title. You'll be able to see the history of all events logged for that submission, in the order in which they happened, as well as any comments made by yourself, the Bugcrowd team, or the Program Owner(s).

Activities tracked include:

  • Adjustments made to a submission's priority
  • Changes to the submission status
  • Monetary and point rewards
  • Any comments made on the submission

Commenting on a Submission

Program owners and the Bugcrowd team use comments to communicate with you on your submissions. Generally, you'll receive a comment on your submission if we need you to provide additional clarifying information in your report, in order to complete the triage process.

When a submission receives a new comment or has a blocker placed on it, an e-mail is generated, notifying you of the new content. You can click on the link in the e-mail or log into Bugcrowd to respond.

To respond to a comment, go to the submission, and add your comment to the text box shown below:

Click the Send Message button when you are done.

Blockers

Submission blockers notify you if a user is blocked and requires an action or additional information from you to proceed. For more information, please see our blockers page.
