Aikido Security CI API client

CLI helper for the public Aikido CI API. This cli tool can help integrate Aikido into a custom CI pipeline without having to implement the Aikido CI API yourself.

Installation and setup

The quickest way to get started is to install the cli tool as a global package.

# npm users
$ npm install -g @aikidosec/ci-api-client

# yarn users
$ yarn global add @aikidosec/ci-api-client

After installation, you'll need to setup your Aikido API key. You can add your key by requesting a token on the Continuous Integrations page in the Integrations section of the Aikido web platform. Click the "Start integrating" link and setup your key globally by executing

$ aikido-api-client apikey <your-api-key-here>

⚠️ Your Aikido API key is stored in ~/.config/configstore/aikido-api-client.json. If you don't want this behaviour (e.g. for security related issues), you can also provide your API key to aikido-api-client by adding --apikey <your-api-key-here> to every command. However, for the examples below, we'll assume you've used aikido-api-client apikey <your-api-key-here> to save your API key. If --apikey is provided while a key is set in the configuration file on disk, the key that was provided with --apikey will be used.


Using the aikido-api-client to start new scans is very straightforward.

$ aikido-api-client scan <repository_id> <base_commit_id> <head_commit_id>

The process will report scan progress and will exit with exitCode 0 if the scan was successfull (gate_passed: true). The process will exit with exitCode 10 if the scan was unsuccesfull (gate_passed: false). If anything else goes wrong (e.g. API unavailable, scanning unavailable, other unexpected issue) the process will exit with exitCode 1.

If you want the scan to run quietly (without output), you can add the --quiet option to the command.

Please note that the repository_id which you need to provide to the CLI is the unique ID of the Git provider you are using, not the ID of the repository in Aikido. You can also find this ID in Aikido, by going to the repository's detail page and clicking on the Git provider's icon in the header.

# For more options and combinations, check the help output
$ aikido-api-client help scan

Uploading custom test results:

$ aikido-api-client upload --repository-id <repository_id> --type checkov --file <path_to_payload_file>

# For more options and combinations, check the help output
$ aikido-api-client help upload

For more information about these parameters, please refer to aikido-api-client help, aikido-api-client help scan or aikido-api-client help upload, or the public ci api page.
