While attempting to import a Python project, you may receive the following error:

It's possible that the Python project that you're meaning to scan is not supported.
What type of Python projects does Snyk support?
Snyk supports testing and monitoring Python projects that have their dependencies managed by pip and expressed in a
requirements.txt file. Python support for
requirements.txt files is available via the Snyk UI and CLI.
NOTE: Snyk also has the ability to find other Python manifest files so long as they include req* in the .txt file name. Currently, this feature sits behind a 'feature flag' that must be enabled for your organization by the Support team. Please contact email@example.com today to get that enabled!
Snyk also supports testing and monitoring Python projects that have their dependencies managed by pipenv and expressed in a
Pipfile file. Python support for
Pipfile files is available via the Snyk CLI.
Testing Python projects
We scan Python projects by examining your
Pipfile file to compare the specific versions of every direct and deep dependency in your project against our Python vulnerability database.
