Looking at the 9.3 docs…
If SQ detects that a specific issue is no longer relevant because the code has been fixed, or simply deleted, it transitions to status CLOSED, where it waits until eventually being removed entirely unless the issue returns for some reason.
But I can’t tell what is supposed to happen when this happens to a hotspot. If nobody has reviewed a hotspot, but the offending code was simply deleted, does it just go away? Or does it stay in some other state with a FIXED resolution? And what code does it get connected to if the code simply disappears (as opposed to being changed to fix the problem)?
Why don’t hotspots have a CLOSED state similar to the issues?
