Getting started with the Snyk Web UI
Introduction to what you can do in the Snyk Web UI

Accessing the Snyk Web UI

After you sign up for a Snyk account, authenticate and log in to Snyk, the Web UI opens to the Dashboard, with a wizard to guide you through setup steps:
  1. 1.
    Identifying where the code you want to monitor in Snyk is located.
  2. 2.
    Defining which projects within your code you want Snyk to scan.
  3. 3.
    Connecting Snyk to the relevant projects to scan them.
  4. 4.
    Reviewing the results of your Snyk scan.
If you're signing into a paid Team, Business, or Enterprise account, you'll also need to select the relevant organization after you log in to Snyk.

What can I do in the Web UI tabs?

Dashboard

View your pending tasks, vulnerable projects, invite team members, and add new projects. The Pending tasks section shows the next chores to be handled for the projects in a Snyk organization.
This information includes:
  • Pull Requests (PRs) that can be raised to fix vulnerabilities in some of the most vulnerable projects.
  • PRs that have already been raised (by or through Snyk) and are open and awaiting review.
Currently, Snyk only tracks and flags PRs in GitHub, GitHub Enterprise, and Bitbucket Cloud, and only for the top-most vulnerable projects. If you use another SCM, Pending tasks shows only PRs that can be raised, not PRs that have already been raised.
Use project links to explore and manage target options
Use the project **** links to explore and manage the metadata, retest, and fix options for the target files in your projects. The link opens a page where you can view the project Overview options, or switch to the History, and Settings tabs.
  • For projects with the Fix vulnerabilities link, use the link to view the Open a Fix PR summary, where you'll find an option to open a fix PR to implement the upgrades and patches in GitHub that address the issues. This page presents the list of issues with full, partial, or no fixes.
  • For the other relevant projects, use View PR links to open and view the Snyk-generated PR fixes in GitHub.
