JetBrains Rider 2018.2 Help

Analyzing Coverage of .NET Сode

JetBrains Rider integrates with dotCover to provide code coverage features in .NET code.

Note that currently not all dotCover features are available in JetBrains Rider. First we focused on support of the most critical functionality:

The features that are not yet available:

  • Code coverage of applications

  • Coverage filters

  • Coverage reports (XML, HTML, etc.)

  • Document summary

  • Hot Spots view

  • Continuous testing indicator

  • Opening coverage snapshots

  • Search in Coverage Tree

The overall usage experience of dotCover in JetBrains Rider and dotCover in Visual Studio is almost identical. Therefore, if you need more details on a particular feature of dotCover in JetBrains Rider, please refer to the existing dotCover documentation.

Installing dotCover in JetBrains Rider

dotCover is provided as a bundled plugin for Rider, and installed along with Rider automatically with no additional actions needed. If for some reason you want to disable dotCover, you can do this via Rider's Plugins settings.


dotCover is available in Rider only for the users of ReSharper Ultimate + Rider or All Products Pack subscriptions.
