Approving a Mitigation with the Annotations API

Veracode APIs

This use case scenario provides the Annotations REST API command and payload for approving a mitigation proposal against one or more findings for an application.

You can use the Applications API to get the GUID for an application.

Use this command to approve a mitigation proposal, with a comment, for an application with two findings:
http --auth-type=veracode_hmac POST "https://api.veracode.com/appsec/v2/applications/{application_guid}/annotations" < input.json
The API passes the JSON file that you populate with the necessary values as shown in this example payload:
{
  "issue_list": "1,2",
  "comment": "This is my comment",
  "action": "ACCEPTED"
}
