Dashboard in Polyspace Access Web Interface

This topic focuses on the Polyspace® Access web interface. To learn about the equivalent pane in the Polyspace desktop user interface, see Dashboard in Polyspace Desktop User Interface.

The DASHBOARD perspective provides an overview of the analysis results in graphical format, with clickable fields that let you drill down into your findings by project, file, or category.

When you upload an analysis run to the Polyspace Access database, the DASHBOARD updates to display the statistics for the latest run.

On the Project Overview dashboard, you see statistics for the currently selected project. When you select a folder in the Project Explorer, you see an aggregate of statistics for all the projects under that folder. The aggregate does not include the statistics of projects for which you do not have a role of Administrator, Owner, or Contributor.

In the Summary section of the Project Overview dashboard, cards display information about open issues, code metrics, quality objectives, and the different families of findings.

  • The Run-time Check card (Code Prover) shows a distribution of findings as red, orange, gray, and green. The card also shows the Selectivity, the number of green checks as a percentage of all detected run-time checks.

  • Defects and Coding Rules cards show a distribution of findings as:

    • To Do — Findings with a status of Unreviewed that need to be addressed with a fix or a justification.

    • In Progress — Findings with a status of To fix, To investigate, or Other that need to be addressed with a fix or a justification.

    • Done — Findings with a status of Justified, No action planned, or Not a defect.

    The card also shows the Density, the number of To Do and In Progress defects or coding standard violations per one thousand lines of code without comments. To view the density you must enable Code Metrics in your analysis.


Green run-time checks, green shared variables, non-shared variables, and code metrics do not need to be addressed or justified. These findings do not count toward the number of findings that are To Do, In Progress, and Done.

To see a more in-depth overview for a family of findings, open additional dashboards by clicking the corresponding card title in the Project Overview dashboard or by using the DASHBOARDS section of the toolstrip.

In the additional dashboards:

  • The Summary section displays project statistics for that family of findings such as current progress of results review or code coverage information.

  • The Details section displays a table that allows you to drill down into the findings by category or by file. If you select a folder that contains multiple projects, you see a categorization by project instead of by file.
