JUnit test annotated with '@Ignore'/'@Disabled'

Reports usages of JUnit 4's @Ignore or JUnit 5's @Disabled annotations. It is considered a code smell to have tests annotated with these annotations for a long time, especially when no reason is specified.

Example:

@Ignore public class UrgentTest { @Test public void testIt() { Assert.assertEquals("expected", "actual"); } }

Configure the inspection:

  • Use the Only report annotations without reason option to only report the cases when no reason is specified as the annotation's value attribute.
