Azure DevOps Cloud

Overview

Checkmarx One supports Azure DevOps integration, enabling automated scanning of your Azure DevOps projects whenever the code is updated. Checkmarx One’s Azure DevOps integration listens for Azure DevOps commit events and uses a webhook to trigger Checkmarx scans when a push, or a pull request occurs. Once a scan is completed, the results can be viewed in Checkmarx One.

In addition, for pull requests, a comment is created in Azure DevOps, which includes a scan summary, list of vulnerabilities and a link to view the scan results in Checkmarx One.

Notice

  • This integration supports both public and private git based repos.

  • Checkmarx One does not support integration with Team Foundation Version Control (TFVC) based repos using the UI.

  • Team Foundation Version Control (TFVC) based repos are only supported by using Checkmarx One Azure DevOps Plugin.

The integration is done on a per project basis, with a specific Checkmarx One Project corresponding to a specific Azure DevOps repo.

Notice

You can select several repos to create multiple integrations in a bulk action.

Prerequisites

  • The source code for your project is hosted on a Azure DevOps repo.

  • You have a Checkmarx One account and have credentials to log in to your account.

  • The Azure DevOps user has admin privileges for this repo, see Code Repository Integrations.

  • Verify that in the Azure DevOps Organization settings under Organization Settings → Policies →Third-Party application access via OAuth” is enabled - For additional assistance use the following link: Azure DevOps connection and security policies.
