The Visual studio extension lets utilize the power 💪 of Kubescape directly in your favorite text editor.
Scan YAML files and get analysis from Kubescape
YAML files can be scanned using a command. You can access any of this extension's commands by opening the Command Palette (Ctrl+Shift+P on Linux/Windows and Cmd+Shift+P on Mac), and then typing in the command name.

Overriding the framework directory
The used frameworks are downloaded to the Kubescape directory by default.

Specify frameworks for scanning
To specify which frameworks to use for scanning you can list them in the

Default: Not set. Uses frameworks from the framework directory.
