Code analysis rule set reference

When you configure static code analysis for managed code projects in Visual Studio, you can choose from a list of built-in rule sets. You can either use one of these built-in rule sets, or you can customize a rule set to fit your project requirements.

The topics in this section describe the built-in rule sets and the rules (or warnings) they contain.


The rule sets in this section pertain to static code analysis. For information about rule sets available for Roslyn analyzer packages, see Use rule sets with Roslyn analyzers.
