Note: Secret scanning was in beta in GitHub Enterprise Server 3.0. For the generally available release of secret scanning, upgrade to the latest release of GitHub Enterprise Server.
On your GitHub Enterprise Server instance, navigate to the main page of the repository.
Under your repository name, click Security.
In the left sidebar, click Secret scanning alerts.
Under "Secret scanning" click the alert you want to view.
Optionally, use the "Mark as" drop-down menu and click a reason for resolving an alert.
Once a secret has been committed to a repository, you should consider the secret compromised. GitHub recommends the following actions for compromised secrets:
- For a compromised GitHub personal access token, delete the compromised token, create a new token, and update any services that use the old token. For more information, see "Creating a personal access token for the command line."
- For all other secrets, first verify that the secret committed to GitHub Enterprise Server is valid. If so, create a new secret, update any services that use the old secret, and then delete the old secret.
