Scanning NodeJS support on 18.20: How does it works?
Hello guys. I recently updated the whole Fortify pack from 18.10 to 18.20 because of the anouncement on the 'What's new' docs talking about new NodeJS support. We have a few projects in Node that have been a nightmare to perform scans, but we got used to them.
After just updating i noticed that documentation SCA guide does not tells anything about scanning node. Okay...
The scans ive already configured for node projects did not showed any signs of problem, except when audited the results, as it was dropped the file/lines number considerably, what looked like a big red flag that something was wrong.
But looking the result closely it seems to be right on the result. Still, need to look closely.
My question is: What was really done about nodeJS on 18.20?
I hope that helps.
Thanks for answering Karene!
I already scan the project using this configuration default for JS since 2 version ago and it works okay like, JS is JS.
My question was about what changes this NodeJS support brought to us, because i see nothing on documentation. However scanning the project was much faster and drop the file/line of code counting like from 4k to 350.
Is this a result from the nodeJS support? It is now handling libraries properly and this is the result?
