Static Code analysis for different types of configuration file


Storing a password in a configuration file is very common practice followed by developer.  The properties file used by developer can be various format.

By default fortify SCA is configured with below values

com.fortify.sca.fileextensions.properties = JAVA_PROPERTIES

com.fortify.sca.fileextensions.ini        = JAVA_PROPERTIES

Does anyone know the mapping for file types with extension  .json, .conf, .local , .yaml? Surprisingly, some of the configuration file don't have extensions.  How do we make sure Fortify SCA will scan these files?
