Where do I find the list of possible messages and IDs returned by checkcode?

For my company's software quality process, I need to determine and report the number of 'blocking' and 'critical' quality violations in my MATLAB code.
The standard tool we use for this (Sonar Qube) doesn't support MATLAB and there doesn't seem to be a built-in way of doing it in the MATLAB IDE, so I've written a short script that runs checkcode on each .m file in the project folder structure and compiles the output into a report. The struct output from checkcode includes a short text ID for each message, for example AGROW is The variable (name) appears to change size on every loop iteration. Consider preallocating for speed.
I want to categorise each message as blocking, critical or non-critical according to a coding standard that we will set, so that I can count up how many messages fell into each category. Can I get a complete list of the possible messages and their IDs, for any given version of MATLAB? There's nothing in the checkcode help, and the settings file saved from the Code Analyzer preferences doesn't seem to contain this information.

Since all linter tools provided by Matlab, such as mlint, checkcode and since R2023A codeIssues, ultimately fall back onto the Code Analyzer, the documentation related to linting messages can be found on the index page for Code Analyzer checks (link).
