I'm enjoying all these SAS offerings around CI including AppVeyor as a CI server. I'm looking at automating the coverity static analysis scan into my build process, as seen here:

Looks pretty easy to automate, the only issue is getting it onto the server. since its 1GB work of application(!) no chance im getting it in there the way i do with Chocolatey or Nuget currently. Is this something that can be made available by you guys? In terms of build script to run the process and upload the results to Coverity, that part seem pretty straight forward and Im sure I can get that working easy enough. It would be great to have that as part of my AppVeyor build when I do. Based on their integration with travis ci submitting on every build is not recommended, but just having the CI produce the artifact for my to upload periodically, or using their branch strategy would be nice.

Some relevant links:

    I would also be interested of having Coverity available on the build agent :)

    Hi Patrick,

    Could you please drop a link with more details about what should be done to support it on build workers?

    Thanks for adding Coverity Scan to the build server, and linking to the blog. I was so inspired I made a little console utility.

    Check out and let me know what you think.
