Note: Your site administrator must enable code scanning for your GitHub Enterprise Server instance before you can use this feature. If you want to use GitHub Actions to scan your code, the site administrator must also enable GitHub Actions and set up the infrastructure required. For more information, see "Configuring code scanning for your appliance."
You can use a variety of tools to set up code scanning in your repository. For more information, see "Setting up code scanning for a repository."
This section applies to code scanning run using GitHub Actions (CodeQL or third-party).
After setting up code scanning for your repository, you can watch the output of the actions as they run.
Under your repository name, click Actions.
You'll see a list that includes an entry for running the code scanning workflow. The text of the entry is the title you gave your commit message.
Click the entry for the code scanning workflow.
Click the job name on the left. For example, Analyze (LANGUAGE).
Review the logging output from the actions in this workflow as they run.
Once all jobs are complete, you can view the details of any code scanning alerts that were identified. For more information, see "Managing code scanning alerts for your repository."
Note: If you raised a pull request to add the code scanning workflow to the repository, alerts from that pull request aren't displayed directly on the Code scanning page until the pull request is merged. If any alerts were found you can view these, before the pull request is merged, by clicking the n alerts found link in the banner on the Code scanning page.
