Ignored Issues

SourceClear Software Composition Analysis

SourceClear provides users with accurate, up-to-date vulnerability information, but not all issues apply to your code. For this reason, SourceClear allows you to ignore issues.

Ignore an Issue

When you assess issues and decide that you no longer want them in your open issues, you can ignore the issues to remove them.

To ignore issues, select them and click Actions > Ignore and confirm that you want to ignore the selected issues.

If you are on the paid plan, you are then prompted to enter a comment to explain why you are ignoring the issues. When you save the comment, anyone who has access to that workspace can view it.

Unignore an Issue

If you mistakenly ignored an issue or decide that an issue should now be tracked, you can unignore it by following these steps:

  1. From the relevant workspace, either select the Issues tab on the left navigation menu or select the individual project with issues you want to take action on.
  2. Under the Issues tab or next to the Issues List heading, select Ignored to view the list of ignored issues.
  3. Select the ignored issues.
  4. Click Actions > Unignore and confirm that you want to stop ignoring the selected issues.

If you are on the paid plan, you are prompted to enter a comment to explain why you are no longer ignoring the issues. Once saved, the comment will be able to be viewed by anyone who has access to that workspace.
