Ruby queries for CodeQL analysis

Explore the queries that CodeQL uses to analyze code written in Ruby 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 Ruby 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."

Built-in queries for Ruby 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 3.11 included CodeQL action and CodeQL CLI 2.14.6, 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."
