About Mend for Visual Studio
Semmle Mend for Visual Studio is an IDE plugin or extension. It highlights code that breaks Semmle analysis rules directly in your IDE. Mend for Visual Studio includes an Alerts view or window, which allows you to locate alerts by type or for a specific resource.
Mend for Visual Studio can be used in two modes:
Mend for Visual Studio connects to a running instance of Project Insight, or uses a Mend configuration file, so the configuration on the client side is minimal. In download analysis mode the alerts identified during remote analysis for the Project Insight dashboard are tightly mapped to the relevant elements in your local code. The downloaded alerts therefore appear in the right place even when the file has been edited since the most recent analysis available from Project Insight.
