Fortify SA Extension for Visual Studio -Finding Security Issues as you Write Code


Fortify Security Assistant provides notifications of potential security issues as and how developer's write their code.

Fortify Security Assistant displays these issues in the code as a tooltip and in the Error List window for open files.

It can also perform an analysis on the current solution (see Scanning Solutions for Issues).

To review the security issues:

  • Pause your cursor over the highlighted code to open a tooltip that briefly describes the issue as shown in the following example:

  • Open the Error List window (the Warnings tab) to see possible security issues in open files.

    For more information about reviewing Fortify Security Assistant detected issues in the Error List window, see Working with Security Issues in the Error List Window.
