What is Automated Analysis?

Code Insight 2021 R2

Code Insight provides Automated Analysis capability to automatically inventory various package formats without the need for manual analysis. New automated detection rules are delivered to Code Insight as part of the Electronic Update process and through internal processes.

Automated Analysis is used in both scanning scenarios outlined below:

Local scanning where the codebase is uploaded to the Scan Server or synchronized to the server from a Source Control Management system like Git or Perforce.
Remote scanning, where a scan-agent plugin performs a scan remotely on built artifacts or source code on an Engineering build server and sends results back to Code Insight.
