Bug Fixes


May 20, 2024


  • The CLI that this plugin is based on is now signed with the Checkmarx digital signature, indicating that this is an official Checkmarx product. This enables communication from this plugin to bypass firewalls on Windows computers that previously blocked the unsigned CLI.


May 1, 2024


  • General improvements and bug fixes.


Apr 9, 2024


  • Added a new flag, --sast-fast-scan to the Advanced Options, for running SAST scans in fast scan mode.

  • Added a new flag --application-name to the Advanced Options, which enables users to assign the project to a specific application.

    Note: This is only effective when creating a new project and assigning it to an existing application.

  • Added Directory.Packages.props to the list of included files (when creating the zip archive for scanning).


Feb 22, 2024


  • Remediated vulnerabilities that we identified in our project.

  • Uses CLI version in which vulnerabilities affecting that project have been remediated.


Feb 9, 2024


  • We now create nightly pre-release versions of this extension whenever we merge new code. Users have the option to update to the latest pre-release version or to update only when a new release version is published.

  • The output log is now stored to a variable cxcli, enabling users to access this data further along in their pipeline.

  • Updated CLI code to GO version 1.21.1 in order to remediate a vulnerability.

  • We now return an unlimited number of results in the results summary (had been limited to 10k).

  • Added an environment variable, "CX_IGNORE_PROXY", for ignoring proxies. Mark the variable as true to ensure that all Checkmarx One CLI commands run directly from the local machine.

  • Added Podfile and Podfile.lock to the list of included files (when creating the zip archive for scanning).

  • Added information about violated policies to the scan summary output.

    For policies that are configured to "break build", when the policy is violated the scan will fail. (The --ignore-policy flag can be applied using --additional-params to prevent policies from causing the scan to fail).

  • Added the ability to generate SBOM reports. SBOMs can be generated using CycloneDX or SPDX format. SPDX reports are output in JSON format, and CycloneDX can be output as JSON or xml. This can be done using the scan create or results show command.

  • Increased the default limit for projects returned using the project list command to 10,000. (This enables Checkmarx One to effectively verify whether a project with the specified name already exists when a scan is initiated via CLI/plugin.)

  • We added a new environment variable, CX_HTTP_PROXY, which can be used to designate a specialized proxy for Checkmarx One. When this is used, it overrides the proxy specified in your general HTTP_PROXY variable.


    We still support use of the HTTP_PROXY variable if you choose to use the same proxy for Checkmarx One as for your other applications.

  • Fixed issue obtaining scan ID from logs.

  • Fixed issue that submitting --groups was interfering with project configuration (e.g., removing designation of primary branch).


June 16, 2023


  • You can now designate a scan as a "Private Package" and assign a package version to it using the Additional Parameters options. Once a private package has been scanned, info about the risks affecting that package will be identified by SCA when that package version is used in any of your projects. You can download an article about private packages here.

  • We added the --exploitable-path flag to the Additional Parameters options. This enables you to designate whether or not Exploitable Path will run on this particular scan. When used, this overrides the designation made in the project settings.

    We also added a flag --sca-last-sast-scan-time, which enables you to specify the number of days that SAST scan results are considered valid for use in Exploitable Path (i.e., if there is no current SAST scan, how many days prior to the current SCA scan will Checkmarx One look for a SAST scan to use for analyzing Exploitable Path.)


    The --sca-last-sast-scan-time flag is not yet fully supported and may not function as designed.

  • Improved memory usage when uploading zip files.

  • Added file extensions go.mod, go.sum, *.dart, and *.plist to the list of included files (when creating the zip archive for scanning).

  • Added additional options for pdf format reports. When running the results show command or the scan create command with --report-format set to pdf, you can now:

    • Add the --report-pdf-email flag to specify email recipients.

    • Add the --report-pdf-options flag to specify which sections to include in the report. Options are: Iac-Security, Sast,Sca, ScanSummary, ExecutiveSummary, ScanResults.

  • Added the option to generate reports in markdown format using the --report-format flag.
