Providing a Project Name Only in a Unified Agent Scan

Overview and Default Behavior

If a scanned project uses a configuration file that contains only a defined 'projectName' (where 'projectToken’, ‘productName’ and ‘productToken’ are left empty), then the Unified Agent adds the results to the first project it finds in the organization that contains the same project name.
If a multi-module project is scanned with the same configuration as described above, and a project with one of the module names already exists, then the Unified Agent adds the module data to this existing project.

Changing the Default Behavior

In order to avoid overriding an existing project with the same name, from the Advanced Settings section of the Integrate page, select the checkbox Add project to default product when only project name is provided.

When this checkbox is selected, the following rules apply to all future scans:

  • When only 'projectName' is provided in the Unified Agent configuration (as demonstrated in the above example), the Unified Agent adds the project to a default product named 'My Product'. This rule is implemented only when the default product 'My Product' does not already contain a project with the same name.
  • If the default product 'My Product' already contains a project with the name specified in the 'projectName' parameter, then the Unified Agent returns an error to the user with the message "Project <PROJECT_NAME>' already exists in 'My Product'. A 'productToken' or 'productName' value should also be specified".
  • If a multi-module project is scanned, and a project with one of the module names already exists under your product, an error is returned and none of the projects are created as part of the scan.
