Chaning the Severity of one of the rules is sonarqube

Must-share information (formatted with Markdown):

  • which versions are you using (SonarQube, Scanner, Plugin, and any relevant extension)
    Community Edution v7.4.18908

  • what are you trying to achieve
    Customize code analysis

I am wondering if I make changes to the severity of an issue will it respect that level in the future? Is there as way that I can skip some of the issues or change the severity at a global level?


Please take a look at the Quality Profiles docs. You won’t be able to update the default Quality Profiles, but once you make your own profile, you can make all the changes you like to it.
