We recently announced the ability (on our new platform) to exclude any issue that Code Climate identifies from your results using issue exclusions in your .codeclimate.yml. Exclusions use fingerprints identified by a fingerprinting algorithm to identify and exclude particular sections of code. In this release, we’ve improved the fingerprints of security vulnerabilities identified by Brakeman.
The more accurate and reliable the fingerprints associated with issues, the less chance that issues will unexpectedly re-appear in your results or be accidentally grouped together.
As a result of this change, if you had previously marked any exclusions in your .codeclimate.yml for Brakeman in your .codeclimate.yml, you will need to add them back with the new fingerprints. If you need assistance with this process please contact us and we’ll be happy to assist you.
