Troubleshoot errors with DroidGPT

Use artificial intelligence to troubleshoot errors and fetch recommendations.

Endor Labs integrates with third-party Artificial Intelligence (AI) tools to help you troubleshoot errors while performing software composition analysis, dependency resolution, or generating call graphs during an endorctl scan.

In the event of an error, DroidGPT generates explanations and actionable advice for how to resolve the error on the given host system. These suggestions are displayed as part of the error log messages on the command line and can help you understand why build errors occurred during the scan process and how to resolve them.

Enable DroidGPT error logging

Use the ENDOR_SCAN_DROID_GPT environment variable or the --droid-gpt option to enable DroidGPT error logging on your system.

  • Enable error logging while performing a scan.
endorctl scan --droid-gpt
  • Enable error logging while checking the system specifications required for performing a scan.
endorctl host-check --droid-gpt

Example: Here is an example of the recommendations generated by DroidGPT while scanning a Ruby repository where the manifest file is not correctly configured.

*** NOTE: Use the following AI-generated advice at your own risk ***
DroidGPT suggests the following as a possible remediation:
1. The error message indicates that there is a problem parsing the Gemfile, which is preventing the dependency tree from being generated.
2. Specifically, the error message states that there are no gemspecs at the specified location, which is causing Bundler to fail.
3. To fix this issue, you should check that the Gemfile is correctly configured and that all necessary gemspecs are present.
4. Additionally, you may want to try running `bundle install` to ensure that all dependencies are properly installed.
5. Please note that this advice is generated by an AI and there may be additional factors at play that are not captured in the error message. As such, there is no guarantee that these steps will resolve the issue, and you should proceed with caution.
