Login to your CodeScan account.
Click on the Quality profiles on your main organization page and then click on Create button.

When you have created the new Quality Profile, you will be taken to a new page where you can click the Activate More button on the left.
Now, make sure on your left side of the page where you see the name of the rule you created, it is marked as inactive, which you can activate at this time.
Make sure that you activate the four rules referenced below by clicking on the Activate button beside the rule.

- Object Permissions should not be permissive
- Enforce Org Security Settings
- Custom fields must have a description field
Once activated, select the Active button under filters (beside the rule’s name).
