Ready to create a Fugue environment? An environment contains resources from a single AWS account, Azure subscription, Google project, or code repository – in this case, repository.

A repository environment maps to a single repository containing resources from Infrastructure as Code (IaC) files. Each scan represents a “snapshot” of the entire repository.

Fugue supports scanning the following types of IaC:

  • Terraform HCL

  • AWS CloudFormation templates

  • Kubernetes YAML manifest files

Sign Up for Fugue

Before you can create an environment, you’ll need to sign up for a free account with Fugue. (You’ll start off with a free Enterprise trial, which gives you access to all of Fugue’s features; after 30 days, you’ll be transitioned to the free-forever Developer plan if you choose not to upgrade.)

Once you’re all signed up and logged in, select the Define New Environment button:


Step 1: Setup (Name, Provider)

In the first step of creating an environment, you name it and specify your provider – cloud or repository.

  1. Name your environment.

  2. Select Git as the provider.

  3. Select Continue.


Step 2: Settings


If at any point you want to change something, you can select “Back” at the bottom of the page to return to the previous step, or “Edit” in the sidebar next to the desired step to return to that step.

  1. Enter the Repository URL.

  2. Enter the name of the branch you want to evaluate (e.g., main, develop, etc.)

  3. Select Continue.


Step 3: Compliance

  • If you’d like Fugue to evaluate your infrastructure configuration for all compliance standards, ensure “Yes” is selected.

  • If you’d prefer to select the compliance families yourself, click No - select a subset.

Fugue supports the following compliance families for repository environments:

  • AWS Well-Architected Framework

  • CIS AWS Foundations Benchmark

  • CIS Azure Foundations Benchmark

  • CIS Controls

  • CIS Docker Benchmark

  • CIS Google Foundations Benchmark

  • CIS Kubernetes (limited beta: Only supported for Repository environments)

  • CSA Cloud Controls Matrix

  • Fugue Best Practices

  • GDPR


  • ISO 27001

  • NIST 800-53


  • SOC 2

  • Custom Rules

  • Custom Families


Step 4: Review

  1. Review the details for your environment, including environment name, URL, branch name, and compliance families.

  2. If anything needs to be changed, click Edit next to the appropriate step.

  3. If everything looks good, select the Create Environment button. Your environment is successfully created and you need to manually kick off a scan to see how your repository looks. See Step 5: Kicking off a Scan for more information.


Step 5: Kicking off a Scan

After creating your repository environment, kick off a scan to evaluate your repository.

  1. Download and install Regula, if you haven’t already.

  2. Run the following command to set your FUGUE_API_ID and FUGUE_API_SECRET as environment variables and replace [FUGUE_API_ID] and [FUGUE_API_SECRET] with your Fugue API ID and Secret:

    1. Follow steps 1-4 in the Fugue docs to create a Client ID and Secret.


3. cd into your local repository and switch to the branch you specified when you created the environment.

4. Run the following command to create a Regula configuration file and replace [environment_id] with your environment ID:

regula init --environment-id [environment_id]

5. Run the following command to kick off a scan:

regula run --sync --upload


Users running Regula v1.6.0 or earlier should execute regula scan or upgrade to Regula v2.0.0 or later.

Congratulations! You’ve just kicked off a scan for your repository environment with Fugue.


If you want to kick off a scan for a repository environment, you must follow the steps outlined above. Using the CLI command fugue scan [environment_id] or hitting the /scans endpoint via the API will not trigger a scan for a repository environment.
