Bandit Report Formatters

Bandit supports many different formatters to output various security issues in python code. These formatters are created as plugins and new ones can be created to extend the functionality offered by bandit today.

Example Formatter

def report(manager, fileobj, sev_level, conf_level, lines=-1):
    result = bson.dumps(issues)
    with fileobj:

To register your plugin, you have two options:

  1. If you’re using setuptools directly, add something like the following to your setup call:

    # If you have an imaginary bson formatter in the bandit_bson module
    # and a function called `formatter`.
    entry_points={'bandit.formatters': ['bson = bandit_bson:formatter']}
  2. If you’re using pbr, add something like the following to your setup.cfg file:

    bandit.formatters =
        bson = bandit_bson:formatter
