Coverity plugin

coverityResults: Publish Coverity View Results

The Publish Coverity View Results step will retrieve issues from the configured Coverity Connect Instance, Project, and View. This step does not run any Coverity Analysis tools, it only retrieves the latest issues for the configured Project and View. It is recommended to run Coverity analyze and commit as prior step(s) in the pipeline to retrieve up to date results.

The Instance is configured in the Global Configuration, use the name of the instance or this step. The Project is the string name identifier of the Coverity Connect project. The View is the name or numeric ID of the view to retrieve issues from. Any filtering details for issue results this pipeline step will use can be configured in the Coverity Connect UI, it is recommended to use a custom "Issues: By Snapshot" view for this pipeline.

Note: if the are multiple streams in the project the view should be configured so the view filter uses only the stream for this pipeline. Additionally, it is recommended to filter the status value to not retrieve any Fixed or Dismissed issues.

withCoverityEnv: Provide Coverity Tools bin/ directory to PATH
