Eclipse plugin

The Snyk Eclipse plugin provides analysis of your code, containers, and infrastructure as code configurations.

Snyk scans for the following types of issues:

The Eclipse plugin provides automated, algorithm-based fix suggestions for both direct and transitive dependencies. This single plugin provides a Java vulnerability scanner and an open-source security scanner.

After you have installed and configured the Eclipse plugin, every time you run it, open a file, or autosave, Snyk scans the manifest files, proprietary code, and configuration files in your project (if not deactivated in the Snyk Settings). Snyk delivers actionable vulnerability, license, or misconfiguration issue details and displays the results natively within the Eclipse UI.

This page explains supported environments, support, and giving feedback and provides installation instructions. After you complete the steps on this page, you will continue by following the instructions in the other Eclipse plugins docs:

After the Snyk plugin is configured, navigate to Eclipse Preferences to ensure that Snyk now appears in the list:
