Work with Applications Generated from Image Containers

To work with image container data in Anchore Enterprise, you must first load the image container data into Enterprise. For more information, see Scanning Repositories.

Once the data is made available to Anchore Enterprise, you can then analyze it. An example workflow might be as follows.

  1. Start Anchore Enterprise. You will default to the dashboard view. The Dashboard is your configurable landing page where insights into the collective status of your container image environment. The summary information is displayed through various widgets. Utilizing the Enterprise Reporting Service, the widgets are hydrated with metrics which are generated and updated on a cycle, the duration of which is determined by application configuration. See Dashboard for more information about what you can view.

  2. Click Applications > Container Images to view a summary of the applications in your container images. The information is categorized by applications, with sub-categories of application versions available from image containers that you previously loaded. Notice the list of applications and application versions, as well as any artifacts in the applications.
