Fortify on Demand Uploader
3.0.9Minimum Jenkins requirement: 1.625.3ID: fortify-on-demand-uploader

This plugin provides a post build action for submitting code to Fortify on Demand for security assessment. 


Fortify on Demand is the cloud-based application security testing service. This plugin enables Fortify on Demand customers to upload code for Static Application Security Testing (SAST) directly from Jenkins.

This plugin features:

  • Fortify on Demand static security assessment for each build triggered by Jenkins
  • Task to poll for results and mark the build as ‘Unstable’ if it does not meet the organization's security policy

This plugin requires a Fortify on Demand account. For more details and to request a free trial, go to https://software.microfocus.com/en-us/software/fortify-on-demand


1. Generate API Key

Jenkins connects to your Fortify on Demand tenant via the Fortify on Demand API. To create an API key, login to the Fortify on Demand Portal and select Administration->Settings->API. Then, add a new API key with role "Start Scans." Make a note of the API Key and the secret code that is displayed.

2. Install Plugin

From the Jenkins Dashboard, go to Manage Jenkins-> Manage Plugins. In the Available tab and search for “Fortify on Demand Uploader”. Select the plugin and the click on Download and install after restart.

3. Global Configuration

From the Jenkins Dashboard, go to Manage Jenkins-> Configure System. Under Fortify on Demand enter the API Key and secret code from Step 1 above. In advanced settings enter the URL that you use for accessing Fortify on Demand. The Test Connection button may be used to validate your settings. If your Jenkins server requires a proxy for web access configure it under Plugin Manager -> Advanced -> HTTP Proxy Configuration.

4. Project Configuration

For each project that requires a Fortify on Demand Security assessment and click Configure. Add Build Step Fortify on Demand Upload and configure the parameters following the help text provided.

The project will now be configured to run a Fortify on Demand assessment for each build triggered by Jenkins.

5. View Results

If the upload is successful the results will be available in the Fortify on Demand portal.

Fortify on Demand allows organizations to specify an application security policy based on a combination of the applications risk rating and the criticality of any vulnerabilities found. If the application meets the organization's security policy the build will be marked as stable. If it does not it will be marked as unstable.

6. Troubleshooting

Diagnostic information for each build is available from Console Output.

Additional Considerations For Maven Users

For the most complete assessment of your application it is important to ensure all dependencies for deployment are satisfied. Maven provides a simple means of outputting these libraries by the maven-dependency-plugin. The section, <excludeGroupIds> may be used to ensure test framework code, for example, is not included.
