This step executes Synopsis Detect scans.


You need to store the API token for the Detect service as 'Secret text' credential in your Jenkins system.

minimum plugin requirement

This step requires synopsys-detect-plugin with at least version 2.0.0.

  • apiToken: Api token to be used for connectivity with Synopsis Detect server.
  • codeLocation: An override for the name Detect will use for the scan file it creates.
  • detectTokenCredentialsId: Jenkins 'Secret text' credentials ID containing the API token used to authenticate with the Synopsis Detect (formerly BlackDuck) Server.
  • dockerEnvVars: Environment variables to set in the container, e.g. [http_proxy: "proxy:8080"].
  • dockerImage: Name of the docker image that should be used. If empty, Docker is not used and the command is executed directly on the Jenkins system.
  • dockerName: Kubernetes only: Name of the container launching dockerImage. SideCar only: Name of the container in local network.
  • dockerOptions: Docker options to be set when starting the container.
  • dockerWorkspace: Kubernetes only: Specifies a dedicated user home directory for the container which will be passed as value for environment variable HOME.
  • projectName: Name of the Synopsis Detect (formerly BlackDuck) project.
  • projectVersion: Version of the Synopsis Detect (formerly BlackDuck) project.
  • scanPaths: List of paths which should be scanned by the Synopsis Detect (formerly BlackDuck) scan.
  • scanProperties: Properties passed to the Synopsis Detect (formerly BlackDuck) scan. You can find details in the Synopsis Detect documentation
  • scanners: List of scanners to be used for Synopsis Detect (formerly BlackDuck) scan.
  • script: The common script environment of the Jenkinsfile running. Typically the reference to the script calling the pipeline step is provided with the this parameter, as in script: this. This allows the function to access the commonPipelineEnvironment for retrieving, e.g. configuration parameters.
  • serverUrl: Server url to the Synopsis Detect (formerly BlackDuck) Server.
  • stashContent: Specific stashes that should be considered for the step execution.
  • verbose: verbose output
