Override a vulnerability

Estimated reading time: 1 minute

DTR scans your images for vulnerabilities but sometimes it can report that your image has vulnerabilities you know have been fixed. If that happens you can dismiss the warning.

In the DTR web UI, navigate to the repository that has been scanned.

Tag list

Click View details for the image you want to see the scan results, and and choose Components to see the vulnerabilities for each component packaged in the image.

Select the component with the vulnerability you want to ignore, navigate to the vulnerability, and click hide.

Vulnerability list

The vulnerability is hidden for the particular image and component. If this vulnerability shows up in other images, it is still reported.

After dismissing a vulnerability, DTR won’t re-evaluate the promotion policies you have set up for the repository. If you want the promotion policy to be re-evaluated for the image after hiding a particular vulnerability, click Promote.
