Filter Findings in Greenlight for Visual Studio Results

Veracode Greenlight

Veracode Greenlight provides the ability to filter results so that you can focus on the findings that are the most relevant and important.

Before you begin

To perform this task, you must have the Greenlight IDE User role.

About this task

The filter action is local to you to be able to filter out findings in the Veracode Greenlight results based on severity or CWE type. You can clear a filter at any time, and all filters are cleared upon reboot or restart of the IDE.

At the top of the Veracode Greenlight Findings tab are toggle buttons for the severity filters. To filter the findings results:

Procedure

  1. Click the severity buttons on which you want to filter the findings.
    The list of findings now only shows the findings of the selected severities.
  2. Click the filter icon in the header of the CWE ID, Location, Language, and Scan Level columns to select more detailed filters, such as a specific CWE ID.


    The list of findings is reduced to only those matching the selected filters.

Results

To remove the filters, click the severities at the top of the tab again. If you have filtered on any of the other columns, click the filter icon and click (Select All) in the dropdown menus of the other information types.
