This section helps to understand how you can override your scan configuration using a checked in file.
Default Configuration Settings
The default configuration is basically a committed JSON file. This JSON file should be committed to the base/root directory before scanning.
On Scan Configuration pop-up, the user can view the “Overwrite default scan configuration” checkbox.
- By default, this checkbox is unticked.
- But, if the user modifies any parameter in UI such as excludes or Additional Options or anything from code checkers, tick the checkbox “Overwrite default scan configuration“.
- The original parameters will be overridden.
In JSON file, by default, exclusions are empty.
For example: In the below image, we can see that whatever excludes we have added in Scan Configuration pop-up and if a user downloads the repository_configuration file (JSON), similar changes will be seen here.
For more information, refer to the “Embold scan configuration JSON”.
