This version of GitHub Enterprise Server will be discontinued on 2024-08-29. No patch releases will be made, even for critical security issues. For better performance, improved security, and new features, upgrade to the latest version of GitHub Enterprise Server. For help with the upgrade, contact GitHub Enterprise support.

Java and Kotlin queries for CodeQL analysis

Explore the queries that CodeQL uses to analyze code written in Java or Kotlin when you select the default or the security-extended query suite.

Who can use this feature?

Code scanning is available for organization-owned repositories in GitHub Enterprise Server. This feature requires a license for GitHub Advanced Security. For more information, see "About GitHub Advanced Security."

CodeQL includes many queries for analyzing Java and Kotlin code. All queries in the default query suite are run by default. If you choose to use the security-extended query suite, additional queries are run. For more information, see "CodeQL query suites."

Note: CodeQL analysis for Kotlin is currently in beta. During the beta, analysis of Kotlin will be less comprehensive than CodeQL analysis of other languages.

Built-in queries for Java and Kotlin analysis

This table lists the queries available with the latest release of the CodeQL action and CodeQL CLI. For more information, see CodeQL change logs in the CodeQL documentation site.

Note: The initial release of GitHub Enterprise Server 3.10 included CodeQL action and CodeQL CLI 2.13.5, which may not include all of these queries. Your site administrator can update your CodeQL version to a newer release. For more information, see "Configuring code scanning for your appliance."
