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 organization-owned repositories where GitHub Advanced Security is enabled. For more information, see "About GitHub Advanced Security."
