Amazon CodeGuru Reviewer is a developer tool that leverages automated reasoning and machine learning to detect potential code defects that are difficult to find and offers suggestions for improvements. Today, we’re announcing the support of file/folder suppression for Amazon CodeGuru Reviewer, a new feature that allows customer to prevent CodeGuru Reviewer from surfacing findings on certain parts of their codebase.

Previously, every full repository analysis performed by CodeGuru Reviewer would scan every file/folder within a customer’s repository. Now, with the launch of CodeGuru Reviewer’s file/folder suppression, customers can specify the files and/or folders they want to be suppressed from their full repository scans. Findings can be suppressed files or folders during incremental scans (i.e. scans initiated by a pull request) as well. Customers are not charged for the lines of code within suppressed files or folders. This new feature helps customers prevent CodeGuru Reviewer from generating unwanted findings on certain files, like test files, autogenerated files, or files that have not been recently updated.
