Sites belong to a corp and consist of a set of requests and configurations. Requests come from agents configured with the site’s access and secret keys. Configurations include agent rules (e.g., tagging requests as XSS, blocklist and allowlist rules, blocking rules), the list of members, integrations, and other configuration options.
