Issue card information

Issue cards appear on the details page for a Project. You can use available options to do the following:

View Issue card information

Issue cards show details for a specific vulnerability or license issue and actions you can take.

The issue card provides a Header section and Body section with information as explained in the next sections of this documentation.

Header section

  • Severity level: for example, High

  • Issue name: for example, Uninitialized Memory Exposure, with a link that can be copied

  • Score: Priority score: 0 to 1,000


  • Links to CWE (Common Weakness Enumeration), CVSS (Common Vulnerability Scoring System), and Snyk Vulnerability Database information for the issue. You can use these links to view more information about the CWE, CVE, and CVSS scores or navigate to the Snyk Vulnerability Database information for a specific vulnerability from its issue card.

Body section

  • Introduced through: The path through which the vulnerability or license was introduced

  • Fixed in: The file the vulnerability is fixed in

  • Exploit maturity: for example, Mature or Proof Of Concept

  • Reachability: for example, Reachable. For information and an example, see Reachable vulnerabilities

  • Social Trends: Snyk shows a Trending banner for issues that are being actively discussed on X (formerly known as Twitter).

Expand an issue card to show more details

When you expand the issue card to show more information, you can see details for the vulnerability, including:

  • Detailed path information

  • Fix advice

  • Overview of the vulnerability

  • Any vulnerable functions within the vulnerability

Filter and sort issue cards

You can apply multiple filters to a Project to show a set of issues based on specific criteria:

  • Vulnerability or license issue

  • Issues with a specific severity

  • Issues within a range of the priority score

  • Issues that have an exploit and how mature the exploit is

  • Issues that are open or have been patched or ignored

You can sort the issue cards in a Project based on their priority score or severity.

Perform additional card actions

You can perform the following actions on the issue card:

  • Ignore the issue: if you do not need to take action on an issue, or it does not need to appear on your reports, you can ignore it.

  • Create a Jira ticket: if you have the Jira integration, you can link your issue boards to Snyk and create Jira tickets directly from the Project details page to fix vulnerabilities.

  • Fix the vulnerability: if a fix is available, you can fix individual vulnerabilities.
