Vulnerabilities API

Every API call to vulnerabilities must be authenticated.

If a user is not a member of a project and the project is private, a GET request on that project will result in a 404 status code.

Caution: This API is in an alpha stage and considered unstable. The response payload may be subject to change or breakage across GitLab releases.

Vulnerabilities pagination

By default, GET requests return 20 results at a time because the API results are paginated.

    "description": "Some XML DOM traversal and canonicalization APIs may be inconsistent in handling of comments within XML nodes. Incorrect use of these APIs by some SAML libraries results in incorrect parsing of the inner text of XML nodes such that any inner text after the comment is lost prior to cryptographically signing the SAML message. Text after the comment therefore has no impact on the signature on the SAML message.\r\n\r\nA remote attacker can modify SAML content for a SAML service provider without invalidating the cryptographic signature, which may allow attackers to bypass primary authentication for the affected SAML service provider.",
