Quality Profiles determine the list of rules used in a scan. Quality Profiles can be customised by adding and removing rules, setting severities and changing scope where applicable.
To make a custom Quality Profile you can start from scratch or by copying one of our default profiles from the list as a starting point.
PLEASE NOTE: Changes CAN NOT be made to the default profiles, only to custom profiles. If you are using a default profile and would like to remove a rule, please make a copy of the default profile and make your changes to the copy as shown below.
First, access the Quality profile menu from the organisation home page.
To create a new Quality Profile, use the Create button at the top right of the page. To copy a profile as a starting point, use the menu button to the right of the profile name.
Once you have chosen a name for your profile, click the Activate More button to begin your customisation.
Use the filters on the left to determine the rules you want to see and click the Activate/Deactivate button to add/remove them from your Quality Profile.
When activating a rule you will be given the option to change its severity and any other parameters the rule might have.
By setting a default Quality Profile, you are assigning every Project without a specific Quality Profile to use the default one. To assign Quality Profiles to specific Projects, use the Administration > Quality Profiles menu for your Project and select the one you would like to use.
