Features Introduced in June 2022

Learn about the new Code Security capabilities on Prisma™ Cloud Enterprise Edition (SaaS) in June 2022.
The following new features or enhancements are available for Prisma Cloud Code Security. These capabilities help agile teams add security checks to their existing IaC (Infrastructure-as-Code) model and enforce security throughout the build lifecycle.

Description
Enforcement Thresholds and Scope
Enforcement enables you to define the thresholds for reducing unnecessary noise in your code reviews and focusing on the most critical issues across the following categories— Open Source (SCA), Infrastructure as Code (IaC), Secrets, Container Images, and Build Integrity.
Based on best practice guidelines Prisma Cloud provides default enforcement settings. If you had previously configured any rules on
Settings
Code Security Configuration
, these are migrated as your thresholds and scope for enforcement.
To modify the enforcement configuration (

Projects

Enforcement
) for all repositories that you are monitoring using Prisma Cloud, you must specify the severity —Critical, High, Medium and Low—of policy violations for which you want to soft fail, hard fail, or enable bot comments to suggest fixes where available.You can also add exceptions for one or more repositories where you need a more stringent or more lenient approach to enforcement.
Terraform Cloud (Run Tasks)
