About code scanning with CodeQL

You can use CodeQL to identify vulnerabilities and errors in your code. The results are shown as escaneo de código alerts in GitHub.

El Escaneo de código se encuentra disponible para repositorios que pertenecen a organizaciones de GitHub Enterprise Server. Esta característica requiere una licencia para la GitHub Advanced Security. Para obtener más información, consulta "Productos de GitHub".

Nota: Tu administrador de sitio debe habilitar el escaneo de código para tu instancia de GitHub Enterprise Server antes de que puedas utilizar esta característica. Para obtener más información, consulta "Configurar el escaneo de código en tu aplicativo."

About escaneo de código with CodeQL

CodeQL es el motor de análisis de código que desarrolló GitHub para automatizar las verificaciones de seguridad. Puedes analizar tu código utilizando CodeQL y mostrando los resultados como alertas del escaneo de código.

There are two main ways to use CodeQL analysis for escaneo de código:

On GitHub Enterprise Server 3.5, the CodeQL action uses CodeQL CLI version 2.8.5 by default. We recommend that you use the same version of the CodeQL CLI if you run analysis in an external CI system.

About CodeQL

CodeQL treats code like data, allowing you to find potential vulnerabilities in your code with greater confidence than traditional static analyzers.

  1. You generate a CodeQL database to represent your codebase.
  2. Then you run CodeQL queries on that database to identify problems in the codebase.
  3. The query results are shown as escaneo de código alerts in GitHub Enterprise Server when you use CodeQL with escaneo de código.

CodeQL supports both compiled and interpreted languages, and can find vulnerabilities and errors in code that's written in the supported languages.

  • C/C++
  • C#
  • Go
  • Java
  • JavaScript/TypeScript
  • Python
  • Ruby

Nota: El análisis de CodeQL para Ruby se encuentra actualmente en beta. Durante el beta, el análisis para Ruby será menos exhaustivo que el análisis de CodeQL para otros lenguajes.

Para obtener más información, consulta la documentación del sitio web de CodeQL: "Lenguajes y marcos de trabajo compatibles".

About CodeQL queries

GitHub experts, security researchers, and community contributors write and maintain the default CodeQL queries used for escaneo de código. The queries are regularly updated to improve analysis and reduce any false positive results. The queries are open source, so you can view and contribute to the queries in the github/codeql repository. For more information, see CodeQL on the CodeQL website. You can also write your own queries. For more information, see "About CodeQL queries" in the CodeQL documentation.

You can run additional queries as part of your code scanning analysis. The queries you want to run must belong to a QL pack in a repository. Queries must only depend on the standard libraries (that is, the libraries referenced by an import LANGUAGE statement in your query), or libraries in the same QL pack as the query. For more information, see "About QL packs."
