Usage Requirements

This plugin has been written for and tested against Fortify CloudScan 17.x


Fortify CloudScan allows an organization to host their own internal cloud-based infrastructure of Static Code Analyzer (SCA) machines that are distributed jobs by a centralized controller and optionally integrated with Software Security Center (SSC). CloudScan is included with Fortify 4.30 and higher and was an optional component in previous versions of Fortify.

This plugin provides simple configuration of CloudScan jobs without sacrificing the flexibility of performing custom scan jobs.


Step 1 - Configure Fortify CloudScan global parameters

Add the URL to Fortify CloudScan and to Software Security Center (SSC). Using SSC is optional but recommended. When SSC is used, the controllers URL will be resolved from SSC. However, scans can also be sent directly to the controller without passing through SSC. When using SSC, a token will be required for authentication. This token is only used for displaying projects and project versions in the job configuration. The token should be assigned to a user with the ability to read all projects and versions from SSC.

Step 2 - Configure job to invoke Fortify CloudScan

Fill out the required Build ID field and optionally the other fields. When using SSC, the plugin can perform lookups for project version id's based on the selected project and version retrieved dynamically from SSC.

Selected the 'Advanced' button will provide configuration for commonly used advanced parameters. If custom parameters are required, use the 'Advanced Scan Arguments' textbox.
