Deprecations from v3

General

  • Allowlist now is called Mutelist.
  • The --quiet option has been deprecated, now use the --status flag to select the finding's status you want to get from PASS, FAIL or MANUAL.
  • All INFO finding's status has changed to MANUAL.
  • The CSV output format is common for all the providers.

We have deprecated some of our outputs formats:

  • The native JSON is replaced for the JSON OCSF v1.1.0, common for all the providers.

AWS

  • Deprecate the AWS flag --sts-endpoint-region since we use AWS STS regional tokens.
  • To send only FAILS to AWS Security Hub, now use either --send-sh-only-fails or --security-hub --status FAIL.
