Ignore rules allow you to whitelist and ignore security violation rules, in order to filter out unwanted violation noise. For example, you might be running Advanced Scans on a testing repository and don’t want these violations to hinder your testing, or you might have instilled strict actions if a violation is found that is a blocker for continuing your development. You want to ignore the specific violation for the time being.

There are many reasons why you might want to ignore a violation, you can read more about it here Ignore Rules.
