Can previously uploaded external issues persist (not be marked as Fixed) if new builds don't include the externalIssuesReportPaths flag

SonarQube 7.9

I have a repo where I will only be including external issues (via the externalIssuesReportPaths flag) on some builds. Most builds will not upload external issues.

After running a build with the externalIssuesReportPaths flag defined, and then running a build without it defined, the external issues that were uploaded to SonarQube from the first build get marked as Fixed.

Is there a way to have these issues persist rather than being marked as Fixed when externalIssuesReportPaths is not specified?


Welcome to the community!

Unfortunately, you’re going to need to include the report every time. Issues that aren’t re-raised by a subsequent analysis are by (our) definition “fixed”.
