FAQ: How do I access App Central?

Once you have completed the steps to setup your New User Account, you should have access to App Central in the Game Warden app.

The dropdown menu displays basic application information and Implementation milestone dates. Learn more about the Implementation Process

System Security Plans

SSP Function

Every deployment of your application will require a dedicated System Security Plan (SSP). This panel allows you to create new and edit existing SSPs.


The Services panel shows you the latest status of all your application components.


From this panel, you can:
- View your Latest Pipeline
- Check out security scans in Scan Lab
- Deploy your containers to the staging and production environments

Pipelines and Vulnerabilities

Under the Latest Pipeline column, click on the green check mark or red x to reveal the current image version number and its pipeline status. Each time you push an image, it appears in the Latest Pipeline section. A pipeline is a set of automated tasks. Pipelines represent image progression within the scanning and hardening processes. You can click the Pipeline button to retrieve detailed insight to include historical pipeline information as well as download artifacts.


Vulnerabilities are specific to a single pipeline and include security findings, which require your attention. Selecting the number of security findings launches you to the Scan Lab page.
