What are the differences between CodeScan Self Hosted and CodeScan Cloud

    Light

Most of the differences between CodeScan Cloud and Self Hosted lie in the integration types and scanning options available.

Feature CodeScan Self-Hosted CodeScan Cloud
Requirements Hosted SonarQube™ server None
Branch Analysis Requires SonarQube™ Developer edition Yes
Reporting Requires SonarQube™ Enterprise edition Yes
GitHub Integration Requires AutoRabit ARM or Salesforce CLI and CI Tool Yes
Bitbucket Integration Requires AutoRabit ARM or Salesforce CLI and CI Tool Yes
Salesforce Integration Requires AutoRabit ARM or Salesforce CLI and CI Tool Yes
Generic Git Integration Requires AutoRabit ARM or Salesforce CLI and CI Tool Yes
380+ Included Rules for Salesforce Yes Yes
Custom Rules Yes Yes
VS Code/IntelliJ Plugin Yes Yes

On CodeScan Cloud, all scanning can be done from the GUI. The tool integrates with your version control/Salesforce orgs to pull the metadata and scan it on our server.

On Self Hosted, the metadata collection and scanning must be completed by an external scanner and pushed to the SonarQube™ dashboard. This can be accomplished with AutoRABIT ARM, CodeScan’s Salesforce CLI plugin or SonarQube™’s own SonarScanner.

Your edition of SonarQube™ also limits the features. SonarQube™ provides a free and open-source version and multiple tiers of paid versions. Please ensure that the version you choose to use has the features you need.

Platform API endpoints are very similar but are also subject to the version and the edition of SonarQube™ you are using.

Note:

SonarQube™ documentation can be found at https://docs.sonarqube.org and has information on current integrations and analysis options with a self-hosted installation.
