March Product Update: Support for Cloud Infrastructure-as-code, Custom Reports with API endpoints & more 🚀
Here are some fresh updates from March! This month we bring you a new product offering, new features, and product updates, interesting reads, and more community news 🙌
We also always share our public product roadmap so you can check the features and updates that are in progress and the ones that will be coming out soon, as well as vote on the most important ones for you!
We’re excited to be bringing you a new segment offer, by adding support for tools used on Cloud Infrastructure! We are now providing analysis for AWS CloudFormation, Azure Resource Manager, Kubernetes, Serverless Framework and Terraform. Read more about our supported languages and tools.
Create custom reports with new API endpoints 🚀
We’re exposing a set of API endpoints that provide information about overall file quality, found issues, and ignored issues. This will help you to find hotspots in your code by consuming this information in a flexible way such as by aggregating data according to teams, components, or any other dimension. Learn more on our API docs:
✅ List files for a given repository and the analysis information related to them
✅ List and search issues found for a given repository
✅ List and search issues that were ignored for a given repository
A better pattern management experience 🤩
We’ve been listening to our customers: it’s been difficult to share pattern configurations, ensure standardization and adapt your configuration as you scale. With this updated user experience:
- You can now filter the patterns of a tool by language, and you can also Enable/Disable ALL patterns at once, per Language, Category, or a combination of the two! Learn more about pattern filters.
We will also be adding a functionality to help with standardizing patterns across the whole organization.
Ignore issues permissions management for all providers
This feature is now available for all Git providers, it provides a way for you to define who can change analysis configurations by setting the lowest permission required by a user of your organization to be able to ignore issues. Learn more about roles and permissions for synced orgs.

New API endpoints about Quality Metrics for a Commit 🚀
- getCommitDeltaStatistics allows you to retrieve the differences in quality metrics introduced in a commit (amount of new issues, fixed issues and changes in complexity, duplication and coverage, along with a value that indicates if the analysis for the specific commit has been finished)
- listCommitDeltaIssues enables you to retrieve detailed information of each issue that was detected or fixed in a commit
