Running local analysis¶
Set up the Codacy Analysis CLI¶
Follow the installation guide to get the
codacy-analysis-cli executable running on your build server.
Running an analysis with the CLI¶
At the moment, the CLI still requires to retrieve the configuration from Codacy to perform an analysis. In order to access the repository, you will have to obtain a Project Token as explained in the CLI documentation. Then, you can invoke the CLI to get a report with all the issues:
If you're using Codacy Self-hosted you must also specify the endpoint where the Codacy instance is running either by using the flag
--codacy-api-base-url or the environment variable
codacy-analysis-cli analyze --directory <SOURCE-CODE-PATH> \ --project-token <PROJECT-TOKEN> \ --allow-network \ --verbose \ --upload
If you don't specify the tool, the analysis will run as Codacy does in the backend. To obtain results for a particular tool, specify the tool with
--tool. You can see the available tools with:
codacy-analysis-cli analyse --help
For advanced configuration details, check all the CLI flags in the CLI documentation.
Some flags you might be interested in:
--allow-network- to run the tools that require compilation like SpotBugs, FindBugs, FindSecBugs
--max-allowed-issues- returns a non-zero exit code when a certain number of issues is exceeded
--fail-if-incomplete- to return a non-zero exit code when any tool fails to run successfully
Notes on ignored issues¶
If you have ignored issues on Codacy be aware that the CLI won't respect those ignored issues when printing the results locally.
When uploading results for Codacy Self-hosted the ignored issues will be reflected on Codacy after the analysis is complete.
