Analyze a project locally

To be able to run the analysis, make sure the project can be successfully built and run in the desired environment, that is, a JRE is properly configured, project dependencies are installed, build scripts or startup tasks are executed, and so on.

Qodana provides two options for local analysis of your code. Qodana CLI is the easiest option to start. Alternatively, you can use the Docker command from the Docker image tab.

Assuming that you have already installed Qodana CLI on your machine, you can run this command in the project root directory:

qodana scan -l jetbrains/qodana-jvm-community:2021.3 --show-report

To start, pull the image from Docker Hub (only necessary to get the latest version):

docker pull jetbrains/qodana-jvm-community:2021.3

and run the analysis locally:

docker run --rm -it \ -v <source-directory>/:/data/project/ \ -p 8080:8080 jetbrains/qodana-jvm-community:2021.3 --show-report

with source-directory pointing to the root of your project.

Open http://localhost:8080 in your browser to examine inspection results. Here, you can also reconfigure the analysis, see the User interface overview section for details. When done, you can stop the web server by pressing Ctrl-C in the console.
