Container monitor

Usage

snyk container monitor [<OPTIONS>] [<IMAGE>]

Description

The snyk container monitor command captures the container image layers and dependencies and monitor for vulnerabilities on snyk.io
For more information see Snyk CLI for container security

Exit codes

Possible exit codes and their meaning:
0: success, image layers and dependencies captured 2: failure, try to re-run command 3: failure, no supported projects detected

Configure the Snyk CLI

You can use environment variables to configure the Snyk CLI and set variables for connecting with the Snyk API.
There are environment variables that apply to the container command; see Configure the Snyk CLI

Debug

Use the -d option to output the debug logs.

Options

--org=<ORG_ID>

Specify the <ORG_ID> to run Snyk commands tied to a specific organization. The <ORG_ID> influences some features availability and private test limits.
If you have multiple organizations, you can set a default from the CLI using:
$ snyk config set org=<ORG_ID>
Set a default to ensure all newly tested and monitored projects are tested and monitored under your default organization. If you need to override the default, use the --org=<ORG_ID> option.
Default: <ORG_ID> that is the current preferred organization in your Account settings
Note that you can also use --org=<orgslugname>. The ORG_ID works in both the CLI and the API. The organization slug name works in the CLI, but not in the API.
For more information see the article How to select the organization to use in the CLI

--file=<FILE_PATH>

For more detailed advice, include the path to the Dockerfile for the image.

--project-name=<PROJECT_NAME>

Specify a custom Snyk project name.

--policy-path=<PATH_TO_POLICY_FILE>

Manually pass a path to a .snyk policy file.

--json

Print results on the console as a JSON data structure.
Example: $ snyk container test --json

--project-environment=<ENVIRONMENT>[,<ENVIRONMENT>]...>

Set the project environment to one or more values (comma-separated). To clear the project environment set --project-environment=
Allowed values: frontend, backend, internal, external, mobile, saas, onprem, hosted, distributed
For more information see Project attributes

--project-lifecycle=<LIFECYCLE>[,<LIFECYCLE]...>

Set the project lifecycle to one or more values (comma-separated). To clear the project lifecycle set --project-lifecycle=
Allowed values: production, development, sandbox
For more information see Project attributes

--project-business-criticality=<BUSINESS_CRITICALITY>[,<BUSINESS_CRITICALITY>]...>

Set the project business criticality to one or more values (comma-separated). To clear the project business criticality set --project-business-criticality=
Allowed values: critical, high, medium, low
For more information see Project attributes

--project-tags=<TAG>[,<TAG>]...>

Set the project tags to one or more values (comma-separated key value pairs with an "=" separator).
Example: --project-tags=department=finance,team=alpha
To clear the project tags set --project-tags=
For more information including allowable characters see Project tags

--tags=<TAG>[,<TAG>]...>

This is an alias for --project-tags

--app-vulns

Allow detection of vulnerabilities in your application dependencies from container images, as well as from the operating system, all in one single scan.
In CLI version 1.962.0 and higher, use the --app-vulns option with the the --json option to see the operating system as well as application vulnerabilities in JSON format in the results.

--exclude-app-vulns

Allow disabling scans for app vulnerabilities in advance of app-vulns being enabled by default.
Cannot be used with --app-vulns.

--nested-jars-depth

When using --app-vulns use the --nested-jars-depth option to set how many levels of nested jars Snyk is to unpack. Depth must be a number.

--exclude-base-image-vulns

Do not show vulnerabilities introduced only by the base image. Available when using snyk container test only.

--platform=<PLATFORM>

For multi-architecture images, specify the platform to test.
Supported platforms are: linux/amd64, linux/arm64, linux/riscv64, linux/ppc64le, linux/s390x, linux/386, linux/arm/v7, or linux/arm/v6

--username=<CONTAINER_REGISTRY_USERNAME>

Specify a username to use when connecting to a container registry. This is ignored in favor of local Docker binary credentials when Docker is present.

--password=<CONTAINER_REGISTRY_PASSWORD>
