Custom Rules For C/C++
Can custom rules be written for C/C++? In reading the custom rules guide it leaves out mentioning it.
Before I embark on trying to write one, I wanted to make sure it is or is not supported.
my understanding is that if a language is defined in the schema, then fortify SCA engine will accept the custom rule for that dlanguage (C:\Program Files\HP_Fortify\HP_Fortify_SCA_and_Apps_16.10\Core\config\schemas\rules.xsd).
With this thought in mind, I was able to develop a custom rule for cobol by using the rule editor's wizard/template to develop the rule under java language; alter the language to "cobol", and altered the condition based on my needs and the cobol custom rule works as desired.
