snyk test  takes stock of all the local dependencies and queries the snyk service for related known vulnerabilities. It displays the found issues along with additional information. snyk test  does not create a snapshot of your project and send it to the Snyk cloud. In order for the Snyk cloud to create a project you need to run snyk monitor .

You should run snyk monitor  every time you update your dependencies so Snyk has an accurate understanding of the dependencies you are using so we can notify you when new vulnerabilities are disclosed or fixes are available.
