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:
codacy-analysis-cli analyse --directory <SOURCE-CODE-PATH> --project-token <PROJECT-TOKEN> --allow-network --codacy-api-base-url <API-BASE-URL> --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
You can see the available tools with:
codacy-analysis-cli analyse --help
If you are using Codacy Self-hosted, you must configure the endpoint where Codacy Self-hosted is running either by using the flag
--codacy-api-base-url or the environment variable
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 will not 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.
