If integrating is not for you, SOOS can still help!  Use the Manifest Scan functionality to scan your projects only when you want or need it.

Performing a Manifest Scan

  1. Within the SOOS application, select Manifest Scan in the left navigation menu.
  2. Here you can upload, or drag & drop, the desired manifest.  The scan will automatically initiate once the manifest type is detected.

    • A warning will be provided if the manifest file exceeds the max size, is an unsupported format, or an unsupported version of a supported format. Supported manifest formats can be found here.
  3. While the analysis is running, the Recent Scans icon in the left navigation menu will indicate 1 active scan in progress.
  4. Once the analysis is complete, the scan results will display as a project on the dashboard.  
    • Projects created via Manifest Scan are identified on the dashboard by listing Manifest Scans as the branch associated with the Project.

    • The Manifest Scan analysis will determine a project name based on the the manifest content or the file name (if not named in the manifest syntax).
    • Project details for projects created via Manifest Scan will be updated by performing subsequent Manifest Scans of manifests with the same file name.

A note about Manifest Scan Dependency Settings

The first time a manifest is uploaded via Manifest Scan, SOOS will always scan the full dependency tree and will include dev dependencies.  Once a project has been created, SOOS will obey the Global Configurations Dependency Settings for subsequent scans of the same manifest, unless specific Project Configurations have been applied.
