Rust Application Analysis


The Cargo coordinate based matching feature provides the ability to scan and evaluate Rust dependencies found in the Cargo.lock file.

What is supported

Files named Cargo.lock will be analyzed

What do we parse from the file?

The fields name and version of the dependency under each "package" section are evaluated. For example:

name = "core-nightly"
version = "1.26.2"

Steps to analyze using the Nexus IQ CLI

Invoke a Nexus IQ CLI scan of a directory or subdirectories containing a Cargo.lock file.  Instructions on how to do this can be found here: Nexus IQ CLI.

Example Cargo.lock file 

name = "core-nightly"
version = "1.26.2"

name = "grin"
version = "1.0.0"

name = "protobuf"
version = "2.5.0"

Steps to analyze using the Jenkins plugin

By default, the Jenkins plugin will not evaluate the Cargo.lock file. A custom Scan Target is needed.

nexusPolicyEvaluation iqApplication: 'SampApp', iqScanPatterns: [[scanPattern: '**/Cargo.lock']], iqStage: 'build'

To find more information on how to configure Jenkins please go to the Nexus Platform Plugin for Jenkins.

Steps to analyze using the Bamboo plugin

Bamboo Scan Targets control what files are examined.  To evaluate Rust, add Cargo.lock to the scan targets via "**/Cargo.lock".  To find more information on how to configure Bamboo please go to the Nexus IQ for Bamboo.
