Introduction to managing issues

Snyk's priority scoring, reporting, and policy features help you prioritize and manage issues.

Use priority scoring

The Snyk Priority Score prioritizes issues based on a number of industry-standard criteria:

Apply Project attributes

Control prioritization at a granular level by applying Project attributes such as:
  • Lifecycle stage
  • Business criticality
  • Environment
These attributes can then be linked to Snyk policies, to assign a policy to Projects containing these attributes.

Organize issues

Use reports

Snyk Reports keeps you up to date on the status of the issues, dependencies, and licenses.

Use ignores

Snyk ignore functions allow you to declutter results that are not important:
Ignore an issue

Assess reachability

Snyk’s reachable vulnerability scanning allows you to gauge risk by identifying whether a vulnerable function is being called by your application.

Define actions for specific types of issues encountered, using our customizable Snyk policies.
