Nexus Repository Manager integration




We are excited to announce the new Nexus Repository Manager integration for Snyk Open Source! 🚀

This integration enables Snyk to resolve all direct and transitive dependencies of packages hosted in Nexus when testing Maven projects imported from Git, and calculate more complete and accurate dependency graphs.

Snyk will also use this integration to access private dependencies when creating Pull/Merge Requests, and update npm/yarn lockfiles using the correct URLs.

This release fully supports Nexus 3.x. Support for Nexus 2.15 and above is in open beta.

The integration is available on Enterprise plans.

To get started, see the 📖 documentation.

Gradle 7 CLI support




We are pleased to announce that Snyk Open Source now officially supports Gradle 7 in the Snyk CLI.

You can now confidently run snyk test and snyk monitor in your Gradle 7 projects, and see the complete picture of their dependencies, vulnerabilities and licence usage.

This support covers Gradle 7.0 and all minor versions above.

It is recommended you upgrade to Snyk CLI v1.969.0 or higher for the best experience.

See the Snyk Open Source Gradle documentation and CLI help for more details.

Improved CLI Output for Snyk IaC






Improved the CLI Output for Snyk IaC to provide you with more informative and actionable feedback. The new CLI Output has been optimised for readability and displays issues in a more clear way to help you find your issues faster and take action to remediate them.

What's Changed?

Issues Section - View more useful information related to your issues.

Issues Ordered by Severity - Issues are now displayed by severity to help you focus on the most important issues.

Summary Section - The new summary section has been redesigned to help you get a quick view of your scan.

What should you do?

To get access to the improved CLI Output:

Update your CLI to v1.970.0 or later.

View the documentation for more details.

Snyk Container - CLI application vulnerabilities are now supported in a JSON output




In CLI version 1.962.0, when using the --json flag together with the --app-vulns flag, we now list operating system as well as application vulnerabilities in a JSON format. Before the change, using the --app-vulns flag together with the --json was not possible.

This improvement is one step towards supporting an upcoming change that will allow the CLI to scan application vulnerabilities by default (without the need to specify the --app-vulns flag).

We have added a new JSON key called ‘applications’ that includes an array of all application scan results. The new JSON format will look like the following:

  "vulnerabilities": [],
  "ok": true,
  "dependencyCount": 13,
  "packageManager": "apk",
  "summary": "No known vulnerabilities",
  "uniqueCount": 0,
  "projectName": "docker-image|snykgoof/os-app",
  "platform": "linux/amd64",
  "path": "snykgoof/os-app:node-snykin/os-app",
  "applications": [
      "vulnerabilities": [
          A bunch of vulns
      "ok": false,
      "dependencyCount": 116,
      "packageManager": "yarn",
      "summary": "14 vulnerable dependency paths",
      "uniqueCount": 9,
      "targetFile": "/app2/package.json",
      "projectName": "snykin",
      "displayTargetFile": "/app2/package.json",
      "path": "snykgoof/os-app:node-snykin"

Changes to the default behaviour for path arguments for Snyk IaC test scans




What's Changing?

We are changing the behaviour of snyk iac test to only scan files within your current working directory.

Currently when a user runs snyk iac test ../my-folder the command will be executed. However after the change if you try to run snyk iac test ../my-folder it will return an error.

We are making this change to create a more consistent and predictable way of how we group and display findings from scanning your directories and files.

Please see documentation for more information.

When is this happening?

Using path arguments outside of your current working directory is unsupported from CLI v1.968.0 onwards.
