When using this mode, the code stored locally on your computer is analyzed. This requires a Semmle license which may be loaded from your computer or downloaded from a Project Insight dashboard that has been set up to support this. (See Supporting Mend local analysis users.)
Benefits of local analysis:
- You can analyze changes that have been made locally but have not yet been included in the analysis performed for a Semmle Project Insight dashboard.
- You do not need access to a running Project Insight dashboard unless you want to download a license and dashboard configuration to use.
Please note that local analysis is only possible if the project is correctly set up in the IDE and if it can be built without compilation errors.
