Note: Your site administrator must enable code scanning for your GitHub Enterprise Server instance before you can use this feature. For more information, see "Configuring code scanning for your appliance."
You may not be able to enable or disable code scanning if an enterprise owner has set a GitHub Advanced Security (GHAS) policy at the enterprise level. For more information, see "Enforcing policies for code security and analysis for your enterprise."
As an alternative to running code scanning within GitHub, you can perform analysis elsewhere and then upload the results. Alerts for code scanning that you run externally are displayed in the same way as those for code scanning that you run within GitHub. For more information, see "Managing code scanning alerts for your repository."
If you use a third-party static analysis tool that can produce results as Static Analysis Results Interchange Format (SARIF) 2.1.0 data, you can upload this to GitHub. For more information, see "Uploading a SARIF file to GitHub."
If you run code scanning using multiple configurations, an alert will sometimes have multiple analysis origins. If an alert has multiple analysis origins, you can view the status of the alert for each analysis origin on the alert page. For more information, see "About code scanning alerts."
You can use code scanning webhooks to build or configure integrations, such as GitHub Apps or OAuth apps, that subscribe to code scanning events in your repository. For example, you could build an integration that creates an issue on GitHub Enterprise Server or sends you a Slack notification when a new code scanning alert is added in your repository. For more information, see "Creating webhooks" and "Webhook events and payloads."
