Bolt for GitHub - Triggering a New Scan

Initiating a Scan

New users are entitled to scan each repository up to five times a day. Existing Mend customers have the scan limitations that are set in their account agreement with Mend.  

A scan is initiated via a valid GitHub 'push' command. A valid 'push' command meets at least one of the following requirements:

  • One of the commits in the 'push' command include added file(s) that have an extension supported by Mend and/or one of the commits in the 'push' command included a removal of file(s) that have an extension supported by Mend. Refer to the Mend Languages page in order to find out whether or not a specific language and its extensions are supported. 

  • One of the commits in the 'push' command includes a modification in the package manager configuration file(s). This includes any of the following files, as specified here.

Each time a valid GitHub 'push' command is made for a repository, Mend initiates a scan.

NOTE: The GitHub 'push' command may include multiple commits.
