Visual Studio Plugin Overview

The CxSAST Visual Studio plugin is installed in the Visual Studio development environment, and enables:

  • Uploading a Visual Studio project's code to CxSAST directly from Visual Studio.
  • An interactive interface for viewing scan results in the Visual Studio environment. This interface has several advantages over the regular CxSAST web interface:
    • You can make changes to the code as you view the vulnerabilities, in the locations indicated by the scan results, without needing to switch between applications.
    • The plugin displays full paths with their intersections, rather than just the first and last elements of each vulnerability instance.
    • The plugin highlights the elements where fixes can be most efficiently applied.

The CxSAST Visual Studio plugin does not work with Visual Studio Express.
