Unlike any other code analysis warning, this is looking for a comment that is deliberately inserted by the developer as a safety net to prevent in-progress code being unintentionally built into a released database. It could be a supervisory or review process, or merely individual programmers reminding themselves. As soon as the issue is resolved, the developer deletes the line.

The flag word must be followed by a space (or a colon and then a space), and then by the Comment text on the same line. For example:

--bug:    This transaction stays open and uncommitted when the parameter is NULL      +--

--Fix:    This stored procedure is vulnerable to a code injection!            

--Warning ... and this code should spring and grow up, he knoweth not how. (Mark 4:27)

--ToDo – update the affected views

Currently, SC004 does not work for multi-line comments (/*…*/).
