How to bypass the pre-receive hook for a single commit?

Sometimes the synchronous scanning of pushes is not feasible due to the size or complexity of the commits pushed. In those cases, developers can include the string **skip-soteri-security-check** in the commit message of the commit which should not be scanned.

If a scan is subsequently triggered via the Repository Scan Report page or the Global Scan Dashboard, the contents of the commit will be scanned. The bypass directive applies to the pre-receive hook only.

When the pre-receive hook is enabled and a commit is bypassed, a warning message is displayed to the pusher:

Additionally, a log message is printed to the Bitbucket log which looks like this:
