Start a Registry Scan

POST 

/api/v32.06/registry/scan

x-prisma-cloud-target-env: {"permission":"monitorImages","saas":true,"self-hosted":true}
x-public: true

Triggers a new scan for all images when a new image is added to the registry or a new scan for an individual image.

You can use the scanning feature in the following ways:

Regular scan

This feature allows you to trigger a new scan immediately for all the images when a new image is added to the registry or trigger a scan for an individual image.

Consider the following points for a regular scan:

  • You cannot make multiple parallel scan requests with a regular scan.
  • You either need to stop the on-going scan using the api/vVERSION/registry/stop or wait for the on-going scan to finish. For information on stopping a regular scan, see Stop Registry Scan
  • You can view the scan result or response for all the images by using the api/vVERSION/registry API endpoint. For information on scan result, see Get Registry Scan Report

cURL Request

Refer to the following example cURL command that forces Prisma Cloud Compute to rescan all registry images:

$ curl -k \
-u <USER> \
-H 'Content-Type: application/json' \
-X POST \
https://<CONSOLE>/api/v<VERSION>/registry/scan

Refer to the following example cURL command that forces Prisma Cloud Compute to re-scan a specific image:

$ curl -k \
-u <USER> \
-H 'Content-Type: application/json' \
-X POST \
-d '{"tag":{"registry":"<REGISTRY>","repo":"<REPO>","tag":"<TAG>","digest":""}}'\
https://<CONSOLE>/api/v<VERSION>/registry/scan

On-demand scan

This feature allows you to trigger a new scan immediately for an individual image and not wait for the next periodic scan.

Note: For an on-demand scan, you must pre-define the image registry scope in the registry scanning configuration.

Consider the following points for an on-demand scan:

  • You can trigger multiple on-demand image scans without interrupting the main registry scanning process.
  • You cannot stop a running on-demand scan, you can only initiate a new parallel scan.
  • You can view the on-demand scan result or response by using query parameter name that specifies the full image name in the api/vVERSION/registry API endpoint. For information on scan result, see Get Registry Scan Report

cURL Request

Refer to the following example cURL command to trigger an on-demand scan for an image:

$ curl -k \
-u <USER> \
-H 'Content-Type: application/json' \
-X POST \
-d '{“onDemandScan”:true,“tag”:{“registry” :“<REGISTRY>”,“repo”:“<REPO>”,“digest”:“”}}' \
"https://<CONSOLE>/api/v<VERSION>/registry/scan"
