            I want to apply the regular expression used in gitleaks in secretlint
            Asked 2022-Apr-09 at 09:04

            I am now trying to migrate from gitleaks to a tool called secretlint.

            Originally, there was a warning in the generic-api-key rule when executing gitleaks, but after moving to secretlint, the warning no longer occurs.

            Specifically, I wrote the regular expression of gitleaks.toml provided by gitleaks in the secretlint configuration file .secretlintrc.json according to the format of @secretlint-rule-pattern provided by secretlint.



            Answered 2022-Apr-09 at 09:04

            The main issue is the the inline (?i) modifier is not supported by the JavaScript regex engine. You must use the normal i flag after the second regex delimiter (/.../i).

            Also, the api[^Version] is a typical user error. If you meant to say api not followed with Version, you need api(?!Version).

            So you can use



            ShellScriptAction equivalent in CDKV2
            Asked 2022-Apr-03 at 21:06

            I have a project in CDKv1 which i am upgrading to CDKv2. I have a Gitleaks stage in my AWS CodePipeline using CDKv1. Now i want to move this functionality to CDKv2 but the ShellScriptAction is deprecated. I tried out with ShellStep but ShellStep does not have the project property - LINK.



            Answered 2022-Mar-29 at 12:04

            I'm assuming you're switching to the new API for CDK pipelines, which requires more than just using different classes for the steps.

            If that's true, the equivalent in the new API is to use CodeBuildStep:



            Build a json in bash with jq
            Asked 2021-Jun-24 at 13:42

            I want to create a new json file from the variables which are fetched from another json. I am a beginner with jq.



            Answered 2021-Jun-24 at 13:36

            This is because you produce the JSON object line by line in a bash read loop. I think the fastest way to achieve your goal is dealing with the output file (variables_projects.json).



            Why is my exec command failing but works if the command is passed in the terminal?
            Asked 2020-Apr-15 at 15:03

            For some reason I'm not understanding why I'm having an issue in my exec command and I believe I followed the documentation and examples I've referenced correctly. When I run this command in the terminal I do not have an issue:



            Answered 2020-Apr-15 at 15:03

            When the exec function runs a command it examines the exit code from that command. It assumes that an exit code other than 0 is an error and thus passes the error in the callback. If gitleaks finds secrets in a repo then it exits with code 1.

            Something along these lines should work:
