Scan container images from Nexus in Snyk
Snyk tests and monitors your Nexus container images by evaluating its tags in your repositories. Once imported to Snyk, your image vulnerabilities are surfaced and can be triaged easily.
To add images from Nexus to Snyk:
Prerequisites:
  • Have a Snyk account with access to the relevant organization (given by an administrator).
  • Nexus integration configured. To learn more about that, follow the steps in Container security with Nexus integration
