GitHub code scanning supports a wide variety of code analysis engines through GitHub Actions workflows — including our own CodeQL engine. Users can now discover and configure Actions workflow templates for partner integrations straight from their repository's "Actions" tab under a category called "Security". Workflows are recommended based on the repository's content: we will suggest analysis engines that are compatible with the source code in your repository.
Code scanning and our own CodeQL analysis engine are freely available for public repositories. Analysis engines and services provided by partners might require a subscription. You can also configure code scanning for organization-owned private repositories where GitHub Advanced Security is enabled.
