Dependency Scanning analyzer that uses the GitLab Advisory Database

AppSec Portal Importer Name: GitLab Gemnasium

GitLab Gemnasium is a tool for automatically detecting vulnerabilities in project dependencies. It scans the used libraries and components to identify known vulnerabilities, providing developers with information about the need to update or replace dependencies to mitigate security risks.

Curl example

curl -X POST localhost/api/v1/scan/import/ -H "Authorization: Token a75bb26171cf391671e67b128bfc8ae1c779ff7b" -H "Content-Type: multipart/form-data" -F "file=@./" -F "product_name=Product1" -F "product_type=Application" -F "scanner_name=GitLab Gemnasium" -F "branch=dev" 

In this command, the following parameters are used:

  1. -X POST: specifies the HTTP method to be used (in this case, POST)

  2. -H "Authorization: Token <authorization_token>": specifies the authorization token obtained from AppSec Portal.

  4. -F "file=@<report_file_path>": specifies the path to the report file generated by the scanner.

  5. -F "product_name=<product_name>": specifies the name of the product being scanned.

  6. -F "product_type=<product_type>": specifies the type of the product being scanned.

  7. -F "scanner_name=<scanner_name>": specifies the name of the scanner used to generate the report (GitLab Gemnasium)

  8. -F "branch=<branch_name>": (optional) specifies the name of the branch in the source code repository (if applicable) This parameter is particularly useful when you want to associate the scan results with a specific branch in your repository. If not provided, the scan will be associated with the default branch
