Run a Greenlight scan in VS Code

You can use Veracode Greenlight for VS Code to scan either a single file or all files in a folder.

The C# for Visual Studio Code extension enables C# compilation for Visual Studio Code. Veracode Greenlight for VS Code uses the extension to generate binaries for Greenlight scans.

Before you begin:

  • Confirm that you meet the Greenlight prerequisites.
  • To avoid caching issues, ensure any files you want to scan are not currently open in the editor. Close the open files and re-open a folder from the activity bar.
  • Before you can scan C# projects, you must install the C# for Visual Studio Code extension.

To complete this task:

  1. Click Open Folder from the Visual Studio Code Explorer menu.

  2. Select a folder or a file.

  3. Choose one of the following options to start the scan:

    • Click the V icon.
    • Use the shortkey, Ctrl+Shift+\.
    • Right-click the file and select Scan with Greenlight.
    • Open the Command Palette and enter Veracode: Scan with Greenlight.
