The Vulnerability Report provides information about vulnerabilities from scans of the branch most recently merged into the default branch. It is available at the instance, group, and project level.
At all levels, the Vulnerability Report contains:
- Totals of vulnerabilities per severity level.
- Filters for common vulnerability attributes.
- Details of each vulnerability, presented in tabular layout.
Introduced in GitLab 11.1.
The project-level Vulnerability Report also contains:
- A time stamp showing when it was updated, including a link to the latest pipeline.
- The number of failures that occurred in the most recent pipeline. Select the failure notification to view the Failed jobs tab of the pipeline’s page.
To access the report, navigate to Security & Compliance > Vulnerability Report.
From the Vulnerability Report you can:
- Filter the list of vulnerabilities.
- View more details about a vulnerability.
- View an issue raised for a vulnerability.
- Change the status of vulnerabilities.
- Export details of vulnerabilities.
You can filter the vulnerabilities table by:
|Status||Detected, Confirmed, Dismissed, Resolved.|
|Severity||Critical, High, Medium, Low, Info, Unknown.|
|Project||For more details, see Project filter.|
|Activity||For more details, see Activity filter.|
To filter the list of vulnerabilities:
- Select a filter.
- Select values from the dropdown.
- Repeat the above steps for each desired filter.
The vulnerability table is applied immediately. The vulnerability severity totals are also updated.
The filters’ criteria are combined to show only vulnerabilities matching all criteria. An exception to this behavior is the Activity filter. For more details about how it works, see Activity filter.
The content of the Project filter depends on the current level:
|Level||Content of the Project filter|
|Instance level||Only projects you’ve added to the instance-level Security Center.|
|Group level||All projects in the group.|
|Project level||Not applicable.|
Introduced in GitLab 13.9
The Activity filter behaves differently from the other filters. The selected values form mutually exclusive sets to allow for precisely locating the desired vulnerability records. Additionally, not all options can be selected in combination.
Selection behavior when using the Activity filter:
|Activity selection||Results displayed|
|All||Vulnerabilities with any Activity status (same as ignoring this filter). Selecting this will deselect any other Activity filter options.|
|No activity||Only vulnerabilities without either an associated Issue or that are no longer detected. Selecting this will deselect any other Activity filter options.|
|With issues||Only vulnerabilities with one or more associated issues. Does not include vulnerabilities that also are no longer detected.|
|No longer detected||Only vulnerabilities that are no longer detected in the latest pipeline scan of the |
|With issues and No longer detected||Only vulnerabilities that have one or more associated issues and also are no longer detected in the latest pipeline scan of the |
To view more details of a vulnerability, select the vulnerability’s Description. The vulnerability’s details page is opened.
The Activity column indicates the number of issues that have been created for the vulnerability. Hover over an Activity entry and select a link go to that issue.
To change the status of vulnerabilities in the table:
- Select the checkbox for each vulnerability you want to update the status of.
- In the dropdown that appears select the desired status, then select Change status.
You can export details of the vulnerabilities listed in the Vulnerability Report. The export format is CSV (comma separated values). Note that all vulnerabilities are included because filters don’t apply to the export.
Fields included are:
- Group name
- Project name
- Scanner type
- Scanner name
- Additional information
- CVE (Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures)
- CWE (Common Weakness Enumeration)
- Other identifiers
To export details of all vulnerabilities listed in the Vulnerability Report, select Export.
The details are retrieved from the database, then the CSV file is downloaded to your local computer.
