When configuring Quality Profiles in SonarQube (8.6.1) the is an option “Activate more” to activate currently inactive rules for a specific profile.
Using this option I will see ALL inactive rules, including deprecated and template rules.
Example from language HTML:
Deprecated rules should not get activated, otherwise I get the warning that the profile “is using deprecated rules”. Template rules cannot be activated at all.
Please update the filter behind “Activate more” to not show deprecated or template rules.
Additional question: Would it be possible to add “tags” or any other marker on specific rules to allow custom filtering? We would like to activate nearly all rules. I would like to tag/mark rules not to be activated to filter out (manually) when using “Activate more” after update.
