To test vulnerabilities in your application, you can start an automated or manual pentest from within your CI/CDs pipeline. Astra provides integrations with the following platforms:

GitHub
GitLab
Jenkins
Bitbucket
Azure
CircleCI

If you use a a different CI/CD tool, you can refer to the generic steps for starting audits via a simple API call via curl

To get started with an integration:

Login to your Astra Dashboard
Navigate to the Pentest menu item, and open the project you want to audit from your CI/CD
Go to the Integrations, and click on the icon of the CI/CD tool you use
Activate the Integration, and follow the steps on the screen (or below)
