  • Prevent harmful packages from getting into your software development pipelines.
  • Protect against known and unknown threats, allowing only trusted software packages into your SDLC.
  • Create policies to block packages with known vulnerabilities, malicious code, operational risk, or license compliance issues.

Audit your Project with JFrog Curation
The curation-audit command currently only supports npm projects.
The jf curation-audit command enables developers to scan project dependencies to find packages that were blocked by the JFrog curation service. This command provides developers with more detailed information, such as whether the blocked package is the project’s direct dependency or is a transitive dependency. This information helps developers to resolve blocked packages more efficiently as they will be able to make a more informative decision based on what Policy violation occurred and what exactly needs to be resolved.
For each blocked package the CLI provides the violated Curation Policies. The command builds a deep dependencies graph for the project, and requests the Curation status by a HEAD request for each node in the tree. It uses the package manager that is used in the project to build the dependencies graph.
Before running the command, do the following:
  1. 1.
    Connect the JFrog CLI to your JFrog Platform instance by running the jf c add command.
  2. 2.
    Ensure your project is configured in the JFrog CLI with the repository you would like to resolve dependencies from. Set the repository with the jf npmc command inside the project directory. \

Example 1

Audit the project in the current directory. Displays all known packages that were blocked by Curation Policies.
jf curation-audit

Example 2

Audit the projects according to the specific paths defined in the "working-dirs" option. Displays all known packages that were blocked by Curation Policies for all projects. The data is displayed in separate tables.
jf curation-audit --working-dirs="/path/to/project/npm_project1,/path/to/project/npm_project2"

Example 3

Audit the project in the current directory using 5 threads to check the packages Curation status in parallel. Displays all known packages blocked by Curation Policies.
jf curation-audit --threads=5
