UI Overview

The UI is made up of:

     Top Level Menu
     Top Level Toolbar
     Three windows which contain multiple tabs, detailed below
     Footer

Each of the three windows has a set of one or more tabs. By default only the essential tabs are now shown when ZAP starts up. The remaining tabs are revealed when they are used (e.g. for the spider and active scanner) or when you display them via the special tab on the far right of each window with the green '+' icon. This special tab disappears if there are no hidden tabs. Tabs can be closed via a small 'x' icon which is shown when the tab is selected. Tabs can also be 'pinned' using a small 'pin' icon that is also shown when the tab is selected - pinned tabs will be shown when ZAP next starts up.

The 'tree' window

This is displayed on the left hand side and allows you to navigate around the URLs visited.

     Sites tab This shows all of the URLs visited in a tree structure

The 'workspace' window

This is displayed on the top right hand side and is where requests and responses are displayed. You can also make changes here when a break point has been hit.

     Request tab This shows the data your browser sends to the application
     Response tab This shows the data the application sends back to your browser
     Break tab This allows you to manipulate the data

The 'information' window

This is displayed on the bottom and is where useful information is displayed.

     History tab This shows the requests in the order they were made
     Search tab This allows you to search all of the requests and responses
     Break points tab This shows the Break Points set
     Alerts tab This shows the alerts raised on the application
     Active Scan tab This shows the active scans
     Spider tab This shows the URLs not yet visited
     Params tab This shows a summary of the parameters a site uses
     Output tab This shows various informational messages

All but the most essential tabs can be hidden by clicking on the grey 'x' on the tab title. You can display tabs you have hidden via the View Menu. Hidden tabs may also appear when 'activated' by another action.
