Plugins

Automate package workflows with Bytesafe plugins

What are Plugins?

Plugins extend on Bytesafe’s core with added functionality and perform actions for you.

Scan packages for vulnerabilities or license issues, send notifications to Slack channels or automatically push packages to upstream registries.

How to configure Plugins

Configuration is done in the Plugins tab for a registry.

Plugins are enabled per registry and configurations are not shared between registries. This allows users to tailor registries to different needs.

Plugins overview

To enable a plugin you require, toggle the selected switch to enabled.

Bytesafe offers a number of built-in plugins ready for use, but will also support custom and 3rd party integrations in the future.

By default vulnerability scanner and license scanner plugins are enabled for new registries.

Plugin settings

Some plugins include additional settings that allow more fine-grained control over how the plugins function. Depending on the plugin, settings can be optional or mandatory.

To access the plugin settings, click on the settings link for the specific plugin.
