Test your AWS CDK files with Snyk CLI

With Snyk Infrastructure as Code, you can test your configuration files with the CLI. You can scan the Amazon Web Services Cloud Development Kit (AWS CDK) with the Snyk CLI by generating a CloudFormation file using the CDK CLI.
Follow these steps to scan a CDK application:
Navigate to the directory that contains the application stack for which you want to generate the CloudFormation.
Generate the CloudFormation file.
cdk synth
This is displayed on your terminal as YAML output and a JSON file is created in the cdk.out directory
Scan the JSON file using the following Snyk IaC CLI command, replacing cdk.out/*.json with the name of the application that you want to scan.
snyk iac test cdk.out/*.json
