Dispose created SPSite objects

When you create a SPSite object with a new operator, the creating application must dispose of it.

CheckId SPC110201
TypeName DisposeCreatedSPSiteObject
Severity CriticalWarning
Type Assembly

Call Dispose on created SPSite object or wrap instruction into using statement. See sample from MSDN:
Bad Practice

  SPSite siteCollection = new SPSite("http://moss");
  // ...
  // SPSite object siteCollection is leaked.

Good Practice
void CreatingSPSiteWithAutomaticDisposeNoLeak()
  using (SPSite siteCollection = new SPSite("http://moss"))
  } // SPSite object siteCollection.Dispose() is called automatically.

Rule relates to SPDisposeCheckId 'SPDisposeCheckID_110'. To ignore this rule add the attribute '[SPDisposeCheckIgnore(SPDisposeCheckID.SPDisposeCheckID_110, "Caller will dispose")]' to your method.

To suppress this violation in managed code add the following attribute to the method which contains the instruction (available since SPCAF version v5.2). Learn more about SuppressMessage here.
