Somethings not working - what should I do?
Somethings not working as you expect with ZAP, and you're not sure if its a bug or a misunderstanding of how ZAP works.
The following steps may well help:
Check for updates
Click on the 'Manage Add-ons' button on the toolbar and then click on the 'Check for updates' button.
Note that there will not be a 'Check for updates' button if you've configured ZAP to check on startup (which is recommended).
If there is a new version of ZAP and/or new versions of any of the add-ons then you should install them.
We are constantly improving ZAP and the add-ons and newer versions may fix the problems that you are experiencing.
Check the ZAP User Guide
ZAP includes a User Guide that should cover all of the functionality available.
This can be accessed via the 'Help / OWASP ZAP User Guide' menu, the help button on the right hand side of the top toolbar, via help buttons on individual dialogs or via the F1 key (which is context dependant).
The main help file is also available online, although this will not include the help for optional add-ons that you have installed.
Check the log file
If there are error messages that appear to indicate a Java memory problem then try increasing the memory available via the appropriate command line script for your platform.
Ask on the ZAP User Group
The ZAP user group is a great place to ask questions about using ZAP. All of the ZAP developers are on the user group as are many knowledgeable ZAP users who may also be able to help you.
Ask on irc
Some of the ZAP developers hang out on irc.mozilla.org in #websectools which you can access via that link or your favourite irc client.
Ask on twitter
You can ask @psiinon short questions directly on twitter, although whether he's online will be timezone and holiday dependant.
Raise an issue
You can raise issues (bugs or new features) at the issue tracker.
