  • We fixed an issue where certain binary files are counted against the license scope on scans that only use source code analysis
  • We fixed an issue where certain unsupported files are counted against the license scope
  • We fixed an issue where scans occasionally failed with invalid arguments error on instances with high core counts

Breaking changes in 2206 SU1

Interface

  • CLI argument for archiving and purging scans

    Potential breaking change. The range of the PurgeThreshold argument has been limited to at least 168 hours and at most 240,000 hours from the current time. Effectively, scans created in the last 7 days cannot be archived or purged.

Administration

  • Renamed CLEAR Engine cluster configuration settings

    No functional change. The setting AutomaticSupression has been renamed to AutoSuppression. However, the value of AutomaticSupression will be used if AutoSuppression is not present.
