Already existing project showing 4.4K issues

I have a old project sonarcloud. Due to " your number of lines exceeds your organization plan " issue, i created new project in other organization. the issue is analysis of newly created project is showing 4.4K issues. where in old project we see only 27 issues.

Old project Analysis:

New Project Analysis:


This is difficult to diagnose without more data.

  • Do the two versions of the project show the same number of lines of code? Perhaps more of the project was analyzed in the new org.

  • How long ago was the first version of the project last analyzed? Rules get added over time and existing rules get smarter over time.

  • Do the two organizations have the same rules enabled in their profiles?

  • What “extra” issues show up in the new version of the project? For which rules?
