SonarQube 7.9.1 LTS Enterprise
I am facing issues with branch analysis. There are two branches - master and dev.
master was created by default at the start of project and after first complete scan, dev branch was created and upon creation of dev branch all existing issues from master branch were synced to dev branch (as expected).
Master branch first analysis:
Dev branch first analysis (after master):
Both branches were working fine, when suddenly dev branch started showing existing issues (which existed in master branch since day one already) as NEW and failing the Quality Gate.
Existing issues in master branch:
Same issues reported as new in dev branch (note that this did not happen for 4 months since this branch was created and multiple scans were run, but it suddenly started showing them as NEW yesterday).
And this of course, failed the Quality Gate on dev branch.
Can someone explain what’s going on ?
