Creating a Writeup
This page explains how to create a writeup within WriteupsDB.
PlexTrac provides hundreds of writeups out-of-the-box but also allows for the creation of new writeups either from scratch or a template. To create a new writeup, follow the directions below.

Creating a Writeup from Scratch

Step 1: Navigate to "WriteupsDB" and click the Writeups tab. Click New Writeup.
Step 2: A modal will appear. It will default to "Start From Scratch" being selected. Click Start.
Step 3: Enter a Title, select a Severity value from the pulldown menu, select a Score value (optional), enter a Description. Fields also exist to enter information on Recommendations and References but are not required.
Add tags by placing the cursor in the Tags text box to find existing tags or begin typing to insert a new value.
New sections for the writeup can be added by clicking Add Field at the bottom of the page. No limit exists to how many new sections can be added. Any section can be deleted by clicking the Remove button.
When finished, scroll back to the top of the page and click Save.

Creating Writeup from a Template

A new writeup can be created using a template. For this path, follow the instructions below.
Step 1: Navigate to "WriteupsDB" and click the Writeups tab. Click New Writeup.
Step 2: A modal will appear. Click "Add Fields From Template" and select the desired template from the pulldown menu. Click Start.
