Exclude specific directories, files, or file types from analysis

Tags: Flow

Exclude a directory, file, or file type by adding it to the ignore list. Adding a file type to the ignore list tells Flow to ignore that file type and remove it from reports. When you ignore a file type, Flow automatically reprocesses the repository and the file type no longer appears in reports.

Note: Ignoring file types applies to files at the repo level, not at the integration and organization levels. If you want to exclude file types for multiple repos, you must add the exclusion for each repo.
