Configure and Download a Baseline with Polyspace as You Code in Visual Studio

For more efficient bug fixing, you can create a baseline using Polyspace® Access™ results. Download the baseline and use it to compare your Polyspace as You Code results and focus on new or unreviewed results.

In order to configure baseline results in Polyspace as You Code, you must have a Polyspace Access server login name and password along with an uploaded project result. The project must contain results from an analysis of the same files you are analyzing in Polyspace as You Code.

Select Show local findings and baseline info from the Show Baseline information dropdown. Then, enter the server URL, your login, and the path for the project for which you want to create a baseline.
