  • Files - by defining sets of coding rules to check (ex: A method must not have a complexity greater than 10)
  • Projects - by defining sets of boolean thresholds on measures (alerts) to comply with (ex: The number of new critical issues must not be greater than 0)

You Even if it is recommended that, for each language, all teams share a common quality profile, it is not always possible. That's why you can define as many quality profiles as you want. Indeed, the requirements are usually not the same while developing an application from scratch or maintaining an application which is 10 years old, while developing a technical framework or a web application. Then you can associate several quality profiles (one per language) to each project.wish when:

  • Technological implementation differs from one application to another (for example, different coding rules may apply when building threaded or non-threaded Java applications).
  • You want to ensure stronger requirements on some of your applications (internal frameworks for example).
  • Etc.

To manage quality profiles, go to Quality Profiles (under Settings in the top bar):


The Quality Profiles service can be accessed by any user (even anonymous users) but to make changes (create, edit or delete) a user must be logged in as a System administrator or a Quality Profile administrator (since version 3.6).
