This section specifies the supported restrictions in CodeScene’s functionality.
Appply Legal Restrictions¶
Some analysis information from CodeScene may be considered sensitive from a legal perspective. This is a topic that varies between different jurisdictions and/or company policies. Thus, CodeScene provides configuration options that let you disable such information.
Disable the Off-Boarding Simulation¶
The off-boarding simulation lets you simulate the impact in case individual developers leave the organization. You disable the off-boarding simulation as shown in Fig. 256.
A Warning on Performance Evaluations¶
The detailed author statistics are useful in order to find the people that carry the history of your codebase and product in their head. Their stories often complement the analysis results and help you put your findings into context.
We strongly recommend against using this data for performance evaluations. That isn’t the purpose of these analyses. The reason we advice against this is part ethical and part practical. In particular, once someone starts to evaluate contributors people will adapt by optimizing for what’s being measured. For example, if I’m evaluated by how many commits I do I’ll increase the number of commits. My commits will no longer carry any meaning, but my statistics “improve”. In addition, using this data for performance evaluation is likely to destroy the team dynamics. Again, if I’m measured by how many commits or lines of code I produce I’m less likely to invest time in supporting my peers and we end up with local optimizations that hurt the overall productivity.
