Prerequisites

Please see: .NET - Analysis prerequisites.

Dependent frameworks and third-party packages provided in the extension

Some dependent frameworks and third-party packages are provided in the extension itself. There is therefore no need to specifically package these items if your source code relies on them - note however, that the AIP COnsole will generate missing library/assembly alerts for these items - these alerts can safely be ignored.

Dependencies with other extensions

Some CAST AIP extensions require the presence of other CAST AIP extensions in order to function correctly. The .NET Analyzer extension requires that the following other CAST AIP extensions are also installed:

Note that when using AIP Console to install the extension, any dependent extensions are automatically downloaded and installed for you. You do not need to do anything.

Download and installation instructions

A specific version of the .NET Analyzer extension is shipped with AIP Core. However, this release may not be the release you want to use, therefore you should check before beginning the analysis (i.e. by performing an Advanced onboarding) that the correct extension release is being used. You can see the list of shipped extensions for each release of AIP Core here: Technology coverage changes in CAST AIP 8.3.x.

If you need to change the release use the Included interface in AIP Console:

There is nothing further to do. Follow the instructions below to run a new analysis/snapshot to generate new results:

Application qualification information

Structural rules

The vast majority of rules provided for the .NET Analyzer are embedded in CAST AIP - see .NET - Structural rules for more information. In addition, some rules are also provided with the extension:
