Starting from 15.02.2021, the Snyk CLI will no longer support Node.js 8.x.
LTS support for this version expired at the end of 2019 and no longer receives security updates. We consider it a general security best practice to always use runtime environments that are more up-to-date.
What does this mean? Starting from the stated date above, using the latest version of the Snyk CLI (v. 1.437.4 and above) with Node.js 8.x, either locally or as part of an automated build pipeline, might fail.
What should you do? For optimized Snyk CLI operations, we recommend upgrading Node.js to the current stable version - version 14.x.
The Snyk team is here to help! Feel free to reach out to support in case you encounter any issues or have any questions.
