Do we need to software scan for client side development in JavaScript, JScript, CAML, ... RRS feed

  • Question

  • Do I need to do code scanning if I do client side coding such as JavaScript, CAML, Jscript...?  If yes, is there anything available from Visual Studio? What do you recommend?

  • Hi Sara-101,

    Yes, It's a good idea if you do the code scanning. I remember using Veracode in one of my projects and later I came to know that it does not give you SharePoint specific and could not bring any SharePoint specific intricacies. I am not sure about any visual studio plugin but you can check this link - https://rencore.com/blog/how-often-scan-sharepoint-applications-vulnerabilities/

  • Hi Sara,

    If you want to do client side coding, it's necessary to do code scanning in time to find out the existed issue/error in the code snippet.

    But as JavaScript code mainly executed in Browser, it's better to do code scanning with Browser Developer Tool (F12) rather than Visual Studio:

    And for CAML Query snippet, suggest to build with CAML Designer which is a smart tool to build CAML automatically:

    CAML Designer 2013 For SharePoint

    Thanks

    Best Regards
