Anchore Engine 0.1.9 adds the following features and bug fixes:


  • Added ability to specify metadata attributes on image add, which are carried through to webhook payloads
  • Added capability to enable image layer caching on analyzers via options in config.yaml.
    See Layer Caching documentation.
  • Added version information in API /v1/system/status
  • Added new webhook/subscription type analysis_update that fires when image analysis has completed
  • Fixed issue for analysis failure resulting from layers that replace populated subdirectories with softlinks in a single layer
  • Adds ability to whitelist and blacklist images in the policy bundle using new sections: "whitelisted_images", and "blacklisted_images". Each are json arrays of {"registry": str, "repository": str, "image": {"type":str, "value": str} entries to select images and affect the final evaluation result irrespective of policy evaluation result
  • Removes some old gates that were ineffective. Will result in eval warning if found in an existing policy: base_check, pkgdiff, suiddiff. These gates required data not reliably available from registry-pushed images
  • Adds 'in' and 'not_in' checks for image metadata checks and dockerfile directive checks to allow membership tests in lists of strings
  • Fixes some rule mapping bugs in specifying mapping rules by digest or image id
