Veracode Greenlight for IntelliJ is a plugin for running Greenlight scans in IntelliJ IDEA or Android Studio. The plugin supports all Java platforms and frameworks listed in Packaging Java Applications.

Veracode Greenlight is designed to scan a file or small package. For this reason, initiating a scan at the project level is restricted. For project-level scans, use Veracode Static Analysis.

Note: Kotlin is not supported.

Greenlight for IntelliJ can only scan Java classes that compile correctly and ignores all other files. It can also scan top-level packages that contain other packages, as well as non-minified JavaScript files. Non-minified code has not had unnecessary characters such as white space, new lines, comments, and block delimiters removed.

It is only possible to scan JavaScript embedded in these file types: ASP, CSS, EHTML, ES, ES6, HANDLEBARS, HBS, HJS, HTM, HTML, JS, JSON, JSP (IntelliJ only), JSX, MAP, MUSTACHE, PHP, TS, TSX, and XHTML.

The Greenlight plugin uses these two certificates that are signed by a certificate authority: and

In addition to using Greenlight for IntelliJ, Veracode recommends that you perform a full static analysis scan using the Veracode Platform or the Greenlight for IntelliJ to achieve comprehensive coverage, actionable results, and policy-level reporting to determine application production readiness.

If your environment is outside the above requirements and you are interested in the Veracode Greenlight plugin, email [email protected] regarding your interest, your IDE tools, IDE version, and programming languages you use in your job.
