This plug-in provides easy configuration of HP Fortify CloudScan jobs.

Usage Requirements

This plugin has been written for and tested against Fortify CloudScan 17.x


Fortify CloudScan allows an organization to host their own internal cloud-based infrastructure of Static Code Analyzer (SCA) machines that are distributed jobs by a centralized controller and optionally integrated with Software Security Center (SSC). CloudScan is included with Fortify 4.30 and higher and was an optional component in previous versions of Fortify.

This plugin provides simple configuration of CloudScan jobs without sacrificing the flexibility of performing custom scan jobs.


Step 1 - Configure Fortify CloudScan global parameters

Add the URL to Fortify CloudScan and to Software Security Center (SSC). Using SSC is optional but recommended. When SSC is used, the controllers URL will be resolved from SSC. However, scans can also be sent directly to the controller without passing through SSC. When using SSC, a token will be required for authentication. This token is only used for displaying projects and project versions in the job configuration. The token should be assigned to a user with the ability to read all projects and versions from SSC.

Step 2 - Configure job to invoke Fortify CloudScan

Fill out the required Build ID field and optionally the other fields. When using SSC, the plugin can perform lookups for project version id's based on the selected project and version retrieved dynamically from SSC.

Selected the 'Advanced' button will provide configuration for commonly used advanced parameters. If custom parameters are required, use the 'Advanced Scan Arguments' textbox.

    I have tried to use the cloudscan plugin with Jenkins 2.89.3, encountering following error when the build invokes fortify build step.

    I have configured global settings and configured the job specific settings as part of build step. Please advise on how to resolve this issue.

    Ensure the SCA clean and translation steps occur prior to executing the CloudScan plugin build step and that they occur on the same Jenkins node.
