Ignore Findings in Greenlight for IntelliJ Results

Veracode Greenlight

If there are known findings in your code that continually appear in your Veracode Greenlight results, you can ignore them to temporarily remove them from the Greenlight results.

To perform this task, you must have the Greenlight IDE User role.
The ignore finding feature removes a finding from the list of all findings. You can show the finding again at any time. Veracode Greenlight ignores any repeated occurrences of an ignored finding in future scans and between IDE sessions.

Ignored findings are only local to the developer and do not affect scans by other developers or any part of the application scan.

In the list of findings in the Veracode Greenlight tab:

  1. In the row for the finding you want hide, in the Actions column, click Ignore.
  2. In the Ignore Flaw popup, review the details of the finding and click Ignore.


    The finding now appears in the Ignored subtab of the Veracode Greenlight tab of the IDE.
  3. To undo the Ignore action, go to the Ignored subtab, select the finding and, in the Actions column, click Show
