Snyk Security for Jira update

Brian Selewski April 15, 2024

How often do the vulnerabilities in the Jira get updated from Snyk?  Is it real time, or does it scan at different times or intervals?

Hello @Brian Selewski this information is not showing within their documentation. 

The updates from Snyk to Jira vulnerabilities likely won't be in real-time, but will happen at intervals. Here's why:

Snyk Integration Methods: Snyk offers two main Jira integration options: pre-built app for Jira Cloud and API for self-hosted Jira instances. Neither method suggests real-time updates.

Snyk Security in Jira Cloud: This app displays vulnerabilities on the Jira project's security tab. While it offers up-to-date information, real-time updates aren't explicitly mentioned in the documentation.

Snyk API: While the API allows for some automation, it doesn't necessarily guarantee real-time data transfer.

There might be a background process or scheduled task that updates Jira with Snyk data periodically.

Besides everything mentioned, you can ask them directly:

Thank you Perisic, I figured it was not real time, I have sent a request to Snyk to see what they say about the timing of the updates in Jira.
