About Greenlight for Visual Studio Technical Requirements

Veracode Greenlight

Veracode Greenlight for Visual Studio performs security scans at the file level. For project-level scans, use Veracode Static Analysis. In Visual Studio 2019, all extensions are available from the Extensions menu.

Supported File Types and Projects

Greenlight for Visual Studio supports .NET and the .NET platforms and frameworks. The versions that Veracode supports are listed in Supported .NET Languages and Technologies.

Requirement Description
File types Greenlight for Visual Studio can only scan files of these types:
  • CS, VB, JS, ASCX, ASHX, or ASPX files that are part of a .NET project that compiles correctly.
  • JavaScript embedded in HTML, JS, or TS files.
C/C++ files are not supported.
  • .NET Core versions supported (for CSPROJ or VPROJ file types) :
    • 2.0
    • 2.1
    • 2.2
  • .NET Core versions not supported (for XPROJ file types) :
    • 1.0
    • 1.1
Note: The Veracode Static Analysis engine does support .NET Core 1.0 and Core 1.1 applications. However, the limitation is that the .NET Core 1.0 and 1.1 project files in the Visual Studio client are not the standard CSPROJ or VBPROJ file types.
File size limit Greenlight for Visual Studio only supports projects of 10MB or smaller. It scans the CS, VB, JS, ASCX, ASHX, or ASPX file selected in the project.
