Follow these steps to deactivate or delete the Code analysis Project:

1. On the Projects page, locate the repository you want Snyk Code to stop testing. In its Target folder, locate the Code analysis Project, and click the Settings button at the end of its row:

2. On the Settings page of the Code analysis Project, click either the Deactivate project or Delete project button according to your needs:

The Code analysis Project you selected is either deactivated or deleted, and its repository will no longer be tested by Snyk Code.

  • After deleting the Code analysis Project, re-import the repository to Snyk and then refresh the Projects page to view the results of the re-import.

  • After deactivating the Code analysis Project, re-activate the Code analysis Project via the Settings page of the Project. After you deactivate a Project, the Deactivate project button changes to Activate project, and a new Activate button appears at the top of the page.
