Managing instances and orgs

Review the existing instances and orgs, add and activate new ones and remove or disactivate the ones that are no longer needed. Here you can also set up the Quality Gates for instances that have at least one scan done.


This is a Quality Clouds admin action, available for admin users in the admin portal.

Adding instances and orgs

Depending on your needs, you may want to connect one or more instances or orgs, which can cover development, integration and production environments. 

Defining instances and orgs in Quality Clouds Admin portal is just one part of connecting your SaaS platforms. Make sure to follow the Connecting ServiceNowConnecting Salesforce and Connecting O365 procedures.

  2. Go to Account section.
  3. In the Instances tab, click the  Add button. 
  4. Select your SaaS tab (if you use several SaaS with Quality Clouds). 
  5. Perform the set up as described for each platform:

Editing instances and orgs

Review the list of your defined instances and orgs to monitor all the environments covered by Quality Clouds. Here you can edit the setting of an instance/org, create schedules for scans and run connectivity tests.

Editing instances/orgs

Edit existing instances/orgs connected to Quality Clouds. Here you can update instance credentials and definition. 

→ To edit instances/orgs

  2. Go to Account section.
  3. Expand the Instances tab, and navigate to the instance of your choice.
  4. Click the  Edit instance button. The instance definition window opens. 
  5. Review and update the set up information, and click Save

You've just edited the details of your instance/org connection. 

Setting up schedules

Set up a one-off or recurring schedule for your instance/org scans. 

→ To set up a schedule

  1. Login to the Quality Clouds Admin portal at https://portal.qualityclouds.com/.
  2. Go to Account section.
  3. Expand the Instances tab, and navigate to the instance of your choice.
  4. Click the Schedules button. The schedules window opens.
  5. Fill in the New schedule form, and click Add

The default time zone of the Quality Clouds application is based on GMT+1 time. In order to schedule scans in your timezone, make sure you factor in the difference.

The new schedule is now added and is now in Inactive state. To activate the schedule and start the automatic scans, change its status to Active.

Running connectivity tests

A connectivity test is an embedded testing performance for your instance, to determine your instance is connected correctly and can, therefore, be scanned. Running an exhaustive automated test for your project is the primary factor that ensures its longevity, in which the connectivity test is also counted.

Setting up Quality Gates


This is an add-on to Quality Clouds. See our solutions and pricing for more information: https://www.qualityclouds.com/pricing/.

Quality Gate is a mechanism for preventing any new technical debt from coming into the platform. It helps you in creating and implementing a strategy for dealing with technical debt in your platform. When you enable a quality gate on your instance, you create a baseline of issues to work from, and you define which new issues can be created while dealing with the debt.

Issues baseline is a snapshot of your platform quality issues taken after a recent full quality scan. It is the total number of issues - subdivided into corresponding numbers of issues by each impact area - and a point in time at which you want to start restricting any new issues coming into the platform.
