Some of the existing policies are configurable. This means that you can clone an existing policy and create new, custom policies with your own configuration. You can also disable a policy altogether, if a policy doesn't quite match your needs.
To change the configuration of a policy, you must clone one of the existing default policies, and then save your configuration as a new policy. You can edit the display name and description of the new policy to help distinguish it from the default policy it's based on.
The available configuration parameters for a policy depends on the default policy you used as a base for your custom policy. The following table lists the default policies that you can configure, and the available configuration parameters that you can use to create a custom policy.
|Default policy||Configuration parameters|
|All critical vulnerabilities||Severities|
|Copyleft licenses||License names|
|Fixable critical and high vulnerabilities||Severities, age|
To configure a policy:
Go to the Docker Scout Dashboardopen_in_new.
Go to the Policies section.
Select the policy you want to configure.
Select the View configuration button to open the policy configuration.
If the button is disabled, the selected policy doesn't have any configuration parameters.
Select the Edit policy button. This prompts you to create a clone of the default policy.
Select Copy and edit policy to create a clone of the default policy.
Update the policy parameters.
Save the changes:
- Select Save and enable to commit the changes and enable the policy for your current organization.
- Select Save changes to save the policy configuration without enabling it.
When you disable a policy, evaluation results for that policy are hidden, and no longer appear in the Docker Scout Dashboard or in the CLI. Historic evaluation results aren't deleted if you disable a policy, so if you change your mind and re-enable a policy later, results from earlier evaluations will still be available.
To disable a policy:
- Go to the Docker Scout Dashboardopen_in_new.
- Go to the Policies section.
- Select the policy you want to disable.
- Select Disable policy.
