Policies enable you to create a set of rules, in which each rule defines security criteria, with a corresponding set of automatic actions according to your needs. Policies are enforced when applying them to Configuring Xray Watches. To learn more on how to create a Policy, see Creating Xray Policies and Rules.

We recommend creating Policies to get a focused list of violations based on your security criteria.

You can create a security policy with exposures and contextual analysis-specific rules. A violation is issued when the criteria you set are met. You can view issued violations either from Scans Listor Watch Violationspages.

Create an Exposures Policy
  1. In the Administration module, under Xray, select Watches & Policies and from the Policies tab click New Policy.

  2. Select the policy rule type Security.

  3. Click New Rule, and from the Type drop-down, select Exposures.

  4. Select the Minimal JFrog Severity. The severity given by the JFrog Security Research team after the manual analysis of the CVE by the team. This specifies that a violation is issued only if the selected severity is met.

  5. Select one or more exposure categories. This specifies that a violation is issued only for the selected categories.

  6. Define the automatic actions that determine the automatic response to a detected Policy violation. For more information, see Creating Xray Policies and Rules.

Create a Contextual Analysis Policy

  1. In the Administration module, under Xray, select Watches & Policies and from the Policies tab click New Policy.

  2. Select the policy rule type Security.

  3. Check the Skip not applicable CVEs checkbox. By selecting this option, the Policy will not issue any violations on CVEs that were found not applicable by the Contextual Analysis scanners.
