Managing alerts that have been automatically dismissed by a Dependabot auto-triage rule

You can filter to see which alerts have been auto-dismissed by a rule, and you can reopen dismissed alerts.

Note: Dependabot auto-triage rules are currently in beta and are subject to change.

Managing automatically dismissed alerts

Note: The Dependabot alerts page defaults to showing open alerts. To filter and view auto-dismissed alerts, you must first clear the is:open default filter from the view.

  1. On, navigate to the main page of the repository.

  2. Under the repository name, click Security. If you cannot see the "Security" tab, select the dropdown menu, and then click Security.
