    • Ignored: Scenarios where an issue may be marked as Ignored include:
      1. The issue may be a real issue, but you want to ignore it for the time being because it is part of a different effort or will be addressed in a later phase.
      2. The issue may be a false positive or you do not intend to address it at all. If the issue is deleted, when the page is re-analyzed the issue will be added to the issue list again and marked as Open. To avoid this, mark the issue as Ignored.
