Coverity Upgrade to 2022.12

2023 April 29

Attention SCAN users! We will begin upgrading the Coverity tools in SCAN on Saturday, 29 April to make this free service even better. The SCAN team has been hard at work stabilizing the service and getting ready for this upgrade.

SCAN will be unavailable during the upgrade, locking registration and triage, and halting builds. Defect data will be unavailable at that time. The upgrade is expected to take up to three hours.

After the upgrade, a new version of the Coverity build package will be available for download. Be sure to download the new build package.

Full details of new features are available at the Community Site.


Supported Versions

Versions 2022.03 and older will no longer be supported after the upgrade.

The current supported versions are:

  • 2022.12
  • 2022.06

Users are encouraged to download the latest tools in Downloads.

Going forward, only the latest two releases will be supported. This means projects should be expected to update their tools approximately once a year (or more frequently if you want the latest features/support).

Build Limits

The number of weekly builds per project are as follows:

  • Up to 28 builds per week, with a maximum of 4 builds per day, for projects with fewer than 100K lines of code
  • Up to 21 builds per week, with a maximum of 3 builds per day, for projects with 100K to 500K lines of code
  • Up to 14 builds per week, with a maximum of 2 build per day, for projects with 500K to 1 million lines of code
  • Up to 7 builds per week, with a maximum of 1 build per day, for projects with more than 1 million lines of code
Once a project reaches the maximum builds per week, additional build requests will be rejected.
