Fairwinds Insights Release Notes 9.12-10.1: Spotlight on Autoscan Enhancements

This month’s Fairwinds Insights release notes offer a number of bug fixes and also enhancements to our autoscan feature. Designed for Platform Engineering Managers who need to roll out Infrastructure-as-Code scanning across multiple teams, Autoscan automatically discovers and scans YAML files and Helm charts in GitHub Repos and provides automated scanning - without requiring individual CI pipeline integrations. With Autoscan, Platform Engineering teams can configure Infrastructure-as-Code scanning in minutes - creating an immediate feedback loop so developers can fix issues faster. 

Learn more about the full features of the Kubernetes governance platform. 


Autoscan Logs

Repositories that have Autoscan turned on will now see an Autoscan Logs section at the bottom of their repository page. This will help users better debug issues with the Autoscan feature.
