The Actions page enables you to quickly and easily remediate security issues and misconfigurations present in the Backlog. Each Action is an aggregation of one or more issues of a common type that can be fixed as a group with automated remediation.

Supported remediation actions

Jit currently supports remediation for the following security requirements:

Security requirementJit remediation method
Scan IaC for Static MisconfigurationsCreate a fix PR.
Require Branch Protection for SCMRun a script to fix.


Each Action contains the following information:

  • The action that fixes the issue.
  • An explanation of why it is important to fix the issue.
  • The total number of occurrences of the issue.
  • The severity.
  • The last time the issue was detected.
  • The specific issue type.
  • Status: Whether the Action is New or In Progress. The In Progress status indicates that a user has opened a fix PR or ignored an issue, but some issues remain unresolved. An issue is considered resolved when it has been ignored or when its fix has been merged.

To fix issues in an Action —

  1. Select the Action to expand it.
  2. Use the checkboxes to select one or more issues from the list.
  3. Select Fix (Open PR). Jit confirms the successful creation of a PR that, once merged, fixes the issue.
  4. Navigate to the PR using the View Fix PR link and merge the changes. Jit security checks run a second time, confirming that the vulnerability or misconfiguration is no longer present.



This final step can be performed by anyone on your team who has access to the repository.
