Workload Protection

"Exclude application scope(s)" specification for Runtime Policies and services

When defining a Container, Function, or Host Runtime Policy or an Aqua service, and you select the Global application scope, you can also select one or more application scopes to exclude from the policy or service. (RFE-37520)

Cleanup of incidents

You can configure Settings > Cleanup to remove incidents from the UI and database by setting the retention period in days. (This setting, which previously existed for audit events, has been extended to support incidents.)

Setting to enable/disable container engine audit event logging

In the Settings > Enforcer page:

  • The Audit Enforcer Connection and Disconnection section has been renamed to Enforcer Audit Event Settings.
  • A new checkbox, Log container engine lifecycle events (e.g., container start/stop), has been added to this section. This checkbox allows you to enable or disable the auto-reporting of the container engine's lifecycle audit logs. By default, this checkbox is disabled.

Workload Protection and Image Scanning

New v2 API endpoints

The following endpoints are available to add all images from the repository or tag structure to the scan queue:

  • /repositories/scanqueue
  • /repositories/scanqueue/status
