Automatically scanning your code for vulnerabilities and errors
You can find vulnerabilities and errors in your project's code on GitHub, as well as view, triage, understand, and resolve the related code scanning alerts.
Code scanning is available for all public repositories and for private repositories owned by organizations where GitHub Advanced Security is enabled.
For more information, see "About GitHub Advanced Security."
