Nuget (with prereleases)

The EnvironmentAbstractions.BannedApiAnalyzer package uses the Microsoft.CodeAnalysis.BannedApiAnalyzers package to prevent usages of System.Environment to access the environment.

Adding a <PackageReference /> to the package in your project is all you need:

<Project Sdk="Microsoft.NET.Sdk">
    <PackageReference Include="EnvironmentAbstractions.BannedApiAnalyzer" Version="1.0.0" />

Then when anyone attempts to call the built-in methods for accessing the environment, they'll receive a build warning indicating that they should use IEnvironmentProvider instead:

public static void Main(string[] args)
    Console.WriteLine("Hello, {0}!", System.Environment.UserName);
warning RS0030: The symbol 'Environment.UserName' is banned in this project: Use IEnvironmentProvider.UserName instead.

If you want to only ban access to environment variables, you'll need to first set the MSBuild property BanSystemEnvironmentVariableAPIs to true in your project:


Then only accessing environment variables will emit a compile-time error telling developers to use IEnvironmentVariableProvider instead:

public static void Main(string[] args)
    Console.WriteLine("Hello, {0}!", System.Environment.GetEnvironmentVariable("USERNAME"));
warning RS0030: The symbol 'Environment.GetEnvironmentVariable(string)' is banned in this project: Use IEnvironmentVariableProvider.GetEnvironmentVariable(string) instead.
There are no supported framework assets in this package.
