Code coverage details
The Code Coverage report shows which lines of code were hit - or not - by unit tests. It works whatever the selected coverage tool, Cobertura (by default) or Atlassian Clover.
Improve Coding Rules Compliance
Simply visualize kinds of coding rules violations.
Clouds of risky classes
Mix complexity and code coverage measures to graphically discover which classes are the most risky. Big red classes are the most complex and the less tested.
Search Coding Rules
Search coding rules by name, plugin, activation level or category. Results can be exported in CSV format. Did you notice the name of the plugin selected in the screenshot ? Yes, it's well-known Findbugs, integrated besides Checkstyle and PMD.
Search engine on projects
Quickly access to project dashboards. The search bar is always accessible from the header. Just start typing the name of the project you search.
Better Coding Rules Breakdown
Compare metrics on time machine
Compare trends of any measures on the same chart, for example to see if code coverage is related to complexity.
Centralized Atlassian Clover license
Simplify the Clover configuration, just copy the Clover license once in sonar and it will be available to all of your projects.
