Every time the base branch configuration changes, a WhiteSource Advise scan must be triggered on that branch prior to seeing new security results.
Vulnerable Commit Alert
An alert can be enabled to notify about newly added vulnerabilities when committing the code inside the IntelliJ. This alert will appear only if the committed feature branches have new vulnerabilities compared to a preconfigured base branch.
To enable Vulnerable Commit Alert, do as follows:
Enable the Focus Mode (enable the Diff operation, choose the base branch, and trigger a WhiteSource Advise scan).
Go to Setting > Version Control > Commit > Before Commit and make sure that “Notify on new OS vulnerabilities” is enabled.
