Visual Studio Code Extension Plugin Overview

The CxSAST Visual Studio Code extension is installed on the Visual Studio Code development environment and enables users to perform the following:

  • Uploading a workspace code from the Visual Studio Code to a CxSAST server.

  • An interactive interface for viewing scan results in the Visual Studio Code environment. This interface has several advantages over the regular CxSAST web interface:

    • You can make changes to the code as you view the vulnerabilities in the locations indicated by the scan results without needing to switch between applications.

    • The extension displays full paths with their intersections, rather than just the first and last elements of each vulnerability instance.

    • The extension highlights the elements where fixes can be most efficiently applied.

    • Scan files, directories, folders, projects, and modules.
