Viewing the Global Inventory and Risks Page

The Global Inventory & Risks page displays a comprehensive list of the packages identified in your account as well as the risks associated with those packages. This info includes vulnerabilities, outdated versions, policy violations, etc. By showing info for all Projects, this screen enables you to prioritize remediation of risks and vulnerable packages by seeing which ones are affecting multiple Projects across your organization. It also helps you to coordinate efforts between different development teams.

Notice

The info shown on the Global Inventory & Risks page includes packages and risks identified in Projects to which the current user is not assigned. However, users can only open the Scan Results page for items that were identified in Projects to which that user is assigned.

The Global Inventory & Risks page is opened by clicking on the Global Inventory & Risks icon in the left navigation pane on the Dashboard (Home page).

The screen includes two tabs:

  • Packages (default) – shows info about all of the packages used in all the Projects in your organization.

  • Risks – shows info about all of the vulnerabilities, operational, and legal risks across all the Projects in your organization.

There is an Export option that enables you to export a csv file for the info that is shown on each of the Global Inventory & Risks tabs. The csv reflects the data currently shown in the table, as per the applied filters.

Global Inventory and Risks Page - Packages Tab

The Global Inventory & Risks tab shows detailed info about the packages identified by the scans of all of your Projects. This info includes policy violations, vulnerabilities, outdated versions, etc. The total number of packages is shown in parentheses in the tab title.

Notice

If a package is used by multiple Projects, a separate record (row) is shown for each instance.

You can search for Package Name, Violates Policies, License, and Project using the search box. You can also sort by column headers and set filters for each column.

You can export the data on this page as a CSV file. The file content is based on the current sorting and filtering of the table display. The table can also be extracted using APIs. For more information see Checkmarx SCA (REST) API Documentation.

Click on a specific row to open the Package Details page for that package in the Risk Report for the Project. For more information, see Package Details Page.

Notice

You can only open the Package Details page for packages that were identified in Projects which are assigned to your Team.
