Control which code scanning alerts cause a pull request check to fail

You can now configure which code scanning alert severity levels cause a pull request check to fail. This lets you prevent pull requests that generate alerts with chosen severity levels from being merged into your codebase.

This is set at repository level, and lets you define whether alerts with severity error, warning, or note will cause a pull request check to fail.

By default, code scanning alerts with severity error will cause a pull request check failure.
