Vulnerability Scanning (Clair)

Prerequisite: Please make sure to install Build and Deploy (CI/CD) integration. To install it, click here.

Clair integration enables you to scan the vulnerabilities of the images during the time of image build only.

While building the container images, it is important to know how secure the application is, before it is deployed. In the source code , the third party libraries and outdated libraries might be used that can add vulnerabilities to the images we deploy. Devtron provides Clair integration for scanning vulnerabilities of the images.


  • You can enable image scanning if it is required.

  • You can set security policies according to your requirements.

  • If you set security policies to block, it blocks deployment of the application.

  • Ability to define hierarchical security policy (Global / Cluster / Environment / Application) to allow / block vulnerabilities based on criticality (High / Moderate / Low).

  • Compares the vulnerabilities against a whitelist.

  • Shows security vulnerabilities detected in the deployed applications.
