OpenSSF Scorecard info is now available in the Dependency Review Action

Dependency review helps you understand dependency changes and the security impact of these changes at every pull request. We have updated the dependency review action to include information from the OpenSSF Scorecard project into the review, helping you better understand the security posture of the dependencies that you’re using.

Code scanning autofix is now available in public beta for all GitHub Advanced Security customers. Powered by GitHub Copilot, code scanning suggests fixes for Javascript, Typescript, Java, and Python alerts found by CodeQL.
This feature empowers developers to reduce the time and effort spent remediating alerts found in pull requests, and helps prevent new vulnerabilities from being introduced into your code base.


The feature is automatically enabled on all private repositories for GitHub Advanced Security customers.
When code scanning analysis is performed on pull requests, autofixes will be generated for supported alerts. They include a natural language explanation of the suggested fix, together with a preview of the code suggestion that the developer can accept, edit, or dismiss. In addition to changes to the current file, these code suggestions can include changes to multiple files. Where needed, autofix may also add or modify dependencies.

You can see the total number of autofix suggestions provided for CodeQL alerts in open and closed pull requests in security overview:

Autofixes on the overview dashboard

You can configure code scanning autofix for a repository or organisation. You can also use Policies for Code security and analysis to allow autofix for CodeQL code scanning for an enterprise.

Enterprise settings

Code scanning autofix supports, on average, 90% of CodeQL Javascript, Typescript, Java, and Python alerts from queries in the Default code scanning suite. The fix generation for any given alert also depends on the context and location of the alert. In some cases, code scanning won’t display a fix suggestion for an alert if the suggested code change fails syntax tests or safety filtering.

This change is now available to all GitHub Advanced Security customers on For more information, see About autofix for CodeQL code scanning.
