Snyk Broker is an open-source tool that acts as a proxy between Snyk and special integrations, allowing for access by snyk.io to your code to scan it and return results to you. SCM integrations with Broker support Snyk Open Source, Snyk Code, Snyk Container (Dockerfile), and Snyk IaC. For more information, see How Snyk Broker works.
Types of integrations supported with Broker are:
To use Snyk Open Source with Snyk Broker, you need only the Broker Server and Broker Client components. The Broker Client is published as a set of Docker images, each configured for a specific Git service. Configure each type of integration using environment variables following the links in the previous section, Integrations with Snyk Broker.
To scan other types of code with Snyk Broker, you must add a component or configurations and add parameters to the Broker Client setup:
Snyk Broker is designed to connect Snyk products to self-hosted integrations that are not publicly accessible from the internet. Snyk Broker also allows you to do the following:
- Control Snyk's access to your network by limiting the files to which Snyk has access and the actions that Snyk can perform.
- Manage a fixed private IP for your integration, targeting the Broker.
Snyk Broker includes a Server and a Client, basic components that are the same across all integrations. The Broker Server runs on the Snyk SaaS backend and is provided by Snyk; no installation is required. The Broker Client is a Docker image deployed in your infrastructure.
