Can I exclude/add specific directories, files, or file types from analysis?

Tags: Flow

At this time you can add a directory/file/or file type to your ignore list, by repo only. We do not offer the ability to ignore a file or file type at the organization level. See the current list of files/directories/file types we ignore by default.

Exclude/add specific directories, files, or file types by repo

  1. Click Settings in the top navigation of Flow. Using the left navigation under Integrations, click Repos.
  2. Select the repo/s you wish to edit/change the Paths to Ignore file then click Edit Paths to Ignore from the drop down menu.
  3. Update the list and click Save.
  4. Confirm your changes by clicking Confirm. If your changes are successful, you will see a Success! message.
  5. View your changes by selecting the repo that you just edited. You can also update the Paths to Ignore file if necessary.
