Onboarding your Project
You have to onboard your project from GitHub to use LFX Security services. First you need to onboard your project to start scanning for vulnerabilities detection, code secrets and non inclusive language.
Onboarding projects into LFX Security is done from the PCC (Project Control Center). As part of this onboarding a Security Bot is installed on GitHub Organizations of the project.
You need to raise a ticket if you do not have access to PCC. Use this link to raise a support ticket to access PCC.
