Secret scanning alerts now have a timeline and users can add a comment when resolving

GitHub Advanced Security customers can now view a timeline of actions taken on a secret scanning alert, including when a contributor bypassed the push protection on a secret. Users can also now add an optional comment when closing an alert via the UI or the API.

In February 2022, we launched a new feature called community contributions to security advisories. We've continued to iterate on this feature, and recently released more improvements:

  • You're now prompted to add a reason for the change, so your contribution can be reviewed more quickly.
  • You can now submit a contributions without reference links getting reordered in the diff.
  • You can now click through to relevant docs from the advisories page.
  • You can overall enjoy a cleaner UX experience through a handful of other small fixes.
