Coverity® Connect is the collaborative issue management console to efficiently manage all issues surfaced by Quality Advisor, Security Advisor and Test Advisor to resolution within a unified workflow.
Connect issues: Manage quality defects, security defects and untested code violations together in a single interface.
Connect developers: Share information and collaborate across geographically distributed teams with an enterprise platform.
Connect to your workflow: Manage issues efficiently to resolution within your SDLC process, from assignment of work items to tracking issues to closure.
When faced with 1,000s of issues, where do you start? With Coverity Connect we can help you answer three important questions:
For every issue discovered, Coverity Connect provides a clear explanation of the issue, its severity based on business impact and its precise location in the code. Developers now have actionable information to make better fix/no fix decisions based upon business impact.
Issues are categorized and prioritized together based upon criticality and impact. We provide classifications out of the box based on our extensive analysis of real world codebases, along with industry classification data. In addition, you can customize your own categories and classifications based on your specific business requirements. Developers can also quickly see the issues relevant to them through flexible filtering capabilities.
Coverity Connect pinpoints the exact location of the issue and displays the actual code so you can quickly understand the defect or violation in context and remediate it appropriately. You can also view the number of occurrences of a single issue common across projects, code branches and versions to understand its global impact.
The intuitive, fully cross-referenced code browser helps you easily navigate the code within and surrounding the issue. By browsing the source code using the original file and directory structure you can identify the issue, as well as issues in nearby areas of code to identify issue clusters or trends.
Expand function calls inline to understand the execution path for deeply nested events and get a comprehensive explanation of the defect, an impossible task to perform during a manual code review.
Every software defect is mapped to the CWE specification, a community-developed defect dictionary, giving developers a better understanding of defect severity and security impact. This provides one-click access to a rich knowledge base, taking the guesswork out researching unfamiliar defects.
Coverity Connect automatically identifies every occurrence of a defect across branches, flagging the presence of a single defect in other projects and products that share code. A single defect that exists in multiple locations in the code is reported once, increasing remediation efficiency.
Automatically assign issues to the appropriate developer as part of the standard development workflow and track to resolution within set SLA time frames to enforce accountability.
Automatically alert developers when new issues impact their project, regardless of who introduced the issue.
Create an escalation process in the event further expertise is required to remediate the issue and maintain an audit trail of issue activity for future reference.
Automatically import issues detected by Coverity Dynamic Analysis for Quality Advisor, Coverity Architecture Analysis for Quality Advisor, FindBugs™, FxCop or third-party code analysis tools to manage issues in a unified workflow.
Coverity Connect integrates seamlessly with the key components of your development environment such as source control management systems, bug tracking systems, IDEs, build systems, continuous integration systems and ALM solutions such as HP Application Lifecycle Management and IBM® Rational® Team Concert (RTC).
