ggshield secret ignore


Ignore some secrets.

ggshield secret ignore [OPTIONS]

The secret ignore command instructs ggshield to ignore secrets it finds during a scan.

This command needs to be used with an option to determine which secrets it should ignore. For now, it only handles the --last-found option, which ignores all secrets found during the last scan.

The command adds the ignored secrets to the secrets.ignored-matches section of your local configuration file. If no local configuration file is found, a .gitguardian.yaml file is created.


  • --last-found: Ignore secrets found in the last ggshield secret scan run.

This command supports all ggshield global options.

Warning: Using this command will discard any comments present in the config file.

Note: ggshield does not share its ignored secrets with the dashboard. Therefore, if you have integrated a repository in the dashboard and are using ggshield on this same repository:

  • a secret ignored on ggshield will still show as a potential incident on your GitGuardian dashboard.
  • a secret ignored on the dashboard will be ignored by ggshield.
