    Solution Filtering

    In addition to the solution filtering by modified since specific date, open and checked out files available in the Beta, we are introducing few more options:

    • Analyze files modified Today/This Week/Last 2 Weeks/This Month – so you can set the relative date once and not have to change the date every day
    • Analyze only specific files – only include the files that match a list of file patters like *Core*.cs or Modules\*. See this KB post for the file path patterns details and examples.

    cir-v3-solution-filtering

    Summary Report

    The Summary Report tab provides an overview of the analyzed source code quality, it includes the high level summary of the current analysis information, filters, violation summary, top N violation, solution info and metrics. Additionally it provides detailed list of violations and excludes.

    The report is self-contained – no external dependencies, everything it requires is included within the html file. This makes it very easy to email the report to someone or publish it on the team portal – see example.

    cir-v3-summary-report-part

    The Summary Report is based on an ASP.NET Razor markup within the Summary.cshtml template. This makes it very easy for you to customize it to your needs.

    You will find the summary report API documentation in the help file – CodeIt.Right –> Help & Support –> Help –> Summary Report API.

    New Review Code commands

    cir3-baseline-filtering

    We have renamed the Start Analysis menu to Review Code – still the same feature and the new name is just highlighting the automated code review nature of the product. The

    • Analyze Open Files command - analyze only the files opened in Visual Studio tabs
    • Analyze Checked Out Files command - analyze only files that that are checked out from the source control
    • Analyze Modified After – analyze only files that have been modified after specific date

    Known Beta issue – when pressed Update only updates the code review criteria but still requires to run the Review Code command manually. In the release version we will run code review when the Update is pressed.

     

    cir3-profile-filter

    Improved Profile Editor

    The Profile Editor now features

    • Advanced rule filtering by rule id, title, name, severity, scope, target, and programming language
    • Allows to quickly show only active, only inactive or all rules in the profile
    • Shows totals for the profile rules - total, active, and filtered
    • Improved adding rules with multiple categories

     

    Dashboard Preview

    While is not what we see it finally looking, an early preview of the Dashboard feature has been shipped with the Beta to give you a rough idea what we are after – provide you with a code quality dashboard view that you customize to your needs.
