NOTES:

IMPORTANT

Beginning in version 21.3.2, WhiteSource will be modifying the various topics, plus the overall structure, of the documentation. This includes editing and condensing the existing content (therefore archiving certain topics) for better usability, removing unnecessary and/or duplicate content, and restructuring the topic hierarchy for a logical flow. Since this project will be a “work in progress” for an unspecified amount of time, WhiteSource apologizes in advance for any inconvenience this might cause.

Major improvements to the Go Modules dependencies detection have been introduced with the addition of a new optimized resolver for Modules, controlled by a separate set of parameters. Two separate settings are now supported: new parameters for controlling the new Modules resolution and the existing Go parameters for controlling Modules and the other Go package managers. The new Modules resolver detects only the actively-used dependencies and includes the following new parameters:

To use the enhanced Modules dependencies detection, it is recommended to turn on the new resolver by setting go.modules.resolveDependencies=true and disable the current Go resolver by setting go.resolveDependencies=false.

Security Advisories

The enhancements above will be deployed gradually, and may result in some WhiteSource organizations experiencing a change in vulnerability alerts over the next month.

Notice

In the next Unified Agent release, the optimized NPM resolution method, controlled by the npm.resolveLockFile flag, will become the default dependency detection for NPM. This will be applied by changing the current default value of the npm.resolveLockFile flag from false to true. In addition to improving the scanning time of NPM projects, more accurate results will be produced by this mechanism. Unmet optional and/or peer dependencies that were not taken into consideration by the previous dependency detection will be part of the results when they are found in the lock file.
