GitLab Boards

You can connect your GiLab repository to a Bright scan to get the reports on every detected vulnerability in automatically opened GitLab issues. Each report provides the following information:
  • Issue severity level
  • Details of discovery
  • Possible exposure
  • Remediation suggestions
For each new scan, you can select any of your GitLab repositories integrated with your Bright projects.


To enable the integration, you should first register the Bright application in GitLab.

  1. Go to your GitLab account preferences. For that, in the upper-right corner, click the down-arrow and select Preferences.
  1. In the left pane, select Applications.
  2. On the Applications page, do the following:
    a) In the Name field, enter a name for the integration application, for example, Bright.
    b) In the Redirect URI field, enter <>.
    c) In the Scopes section, select the api checkbox.
    d) Click Save application.
    The created Application ID and Secret will then be required for enabling the integration in the Bright app.

The Bright connection to GitLab is enabled.


Configure GitLab Integration with Bright Projects

After you have connected Bright to GitLab, you need to integrate a specific Bright project with your GitLab repository(ies) to be used for a scan. The integration allows Bright to automatically provide the scan reports in the associated GitLab repositories. Moreover, you can select a certain severity level of issues to be sent to the repositories associated with your Bright project.

To integrate a certain Bright project with your GitLab repository(ies), follow these steps.
