Project settings

On this page


Project tags allow you to categorize and group projects for easier selection on the Projects page. Project tags can be administered from the project home page. Administrators will see a dropdown menu indicator next to the project's list of current tags (or next to the No tags indicator). If the tag you want isn't visible in the dropdown, use the built-in search input to find what you're looking for, or create it on the fly.

Administration items

Project administration is accessible through the Project Settings menu of each project.

Only project administrators can access project's settings (see Authorization).

Adding a project

A project is automatically added at its first analysis. Note that you can also provision projects.

Analysis report processing

A project-level background tasks page is available at Project Settings > Background Tasks to allow project administrators to check their projects' processing. It offers analysis report details and logs.

Deleting a project

Deleting a single project

You can delete a project through Project Settings > Deletion.

Deleting multiple projects

You can also delete multiple projects simultaneously from the global Project Settings > Projects > Management.

Updating the project key

The project key can be updated (without losing the history on the project) at Project Settings > Update Key.

The new key must contain at least one non-digit character. Allowed characters are: a through z, A through Z, - (dash), _ (underscore), . (dot), : (colon) and the digits 0 through 9. This value is case-sensitive.

Default issue assignee

When new issues are created during analysis, they are assigned to the last committer where the issue was raised. When it is not possible to identify the last committer, issues can be assigned to a default assignee, at Administration > General Settings > Issues.

Setting quality gate and quality profiles

Project administrators can select which of the following to use on their project:

  • Quality profiles (go to Project Settings > Quality Profiles)
  • Quality gate (go to Project Settings > Quality Gate)

Setting exclusions

See Narrowing the focus.

On top of standard links which may only be set as Analysis parameters, additional custom links can be added through the web interface (under Project Settings > Links). Those links will then be displayed in the Project page.
