Vulnerability export API

Introduced in GitLab 12.10. Updated in GitLab 13.0.

caution
This API is in an Alpha stage and considered unstable. The response payload may be subject to change or breakage across GitLab releases.

Every API call to vulnerability exports must be authenticated.

Create a project-level vulnerability export

Creates a new vulnerability export for a project.

If an authenticated user doesn’t have permission to create a new vulnerability, this request returns a 403 Forbidden status code.

Vulnerability exports can be only accessed by the export’s author.

POST /security/projects/:id/vulnerability_exports
AttributeTypeRequiredDescription
idinteger or stringyesThe ID or URL-encoded path of the project which the authenticated user is a member of
curl --request POST --header "PRIVATE-TOKEN: <your_access_token>" "https://gitlab.example.com/api/v4/security/projects/1/vulnerability_exports"

The created vulnerability export is automatically deleted after 1 hour.

Example response:

{
  "id": 2,
  "created_at": "2020-03-30T09:35:38.746Z",
  "project_id": 1,
  "group_id": null,
  "format": "csv",
  "status": "created",
  "started_at": null,
  "finished_at": null,

    "self": "https://gitlab.example.com/api/v4/security/vulnerability_exports/2",
    "download": "https://gitlab.example.com/api/v4/security/vulnerability_exports/2/download"
  }
}

Create a group-level vulnerability export

Creates a new vulnerability export for a group.

If an authenticated user doesn’t have permission to create a new vulnerability, this request returns a 403 Forbidden status code.

Vulnerability exports can be only accessed by the export’s author.

POST /security/groups/:id/vulnerability_exports
AttributeTypeRequiredDescription
idinteger or stringyesThe ID or URL-encoded path of the group which the authenticated user is a member of
curl --request POST --header "PRIVATE-TOKEN: <your_access_token>" "https://gitlab.example.com/api/v4/security/groups/1/vulnerability_exports"

The created vulnerability export is automatically deleted after 1 hour.

Example response:

{
  "id": 2,
  "created_at": "2020-03-30T09:35:38.746Z",
  "project_id": null,

  }
}

Create an instance-level vulnerability export

Creates a new vulnerability export for the projects of the user selected in the Security Dashboard.

POST /security/vulnerability_exports
curl --request POST --header "PRIVATE-TOKEN: <your_access_token>" "https://gitlab.example.com/api/v4/security/vulnerability_exports"

The created vulnerability export is automatically deleted after one hour.

Example response:

{

    "download": "https://gitlab.example.com/api/v4/security/vulnerability_exports/2/download"
  }
}

Get single vulnerability export

Gets a single vulnerability export.

GET /security/vulnerability_exports/:id
AttributeTypeRequiredDescription
idinteger or stringyesThe vulnerability export’s ID
curl --header "PRIVATE-TOKEN: <your_access_token>" "https://gitlab.example.com/api/v4/security/vulnerability_exports/2"

If the vulnerability export isn’t finished, the response is 202 Accepted.

Example response:
