I have a project using latest SonarQube community doing post-merge analysis on our master branch and considering upgrading to a paid version to run analysis on pull requests on Github Enterprise and to prevent merge when new issues are found or coverage is below a threshold. The thing that doesn’t seem clear to me is the depth of analysis and speed of pull-request / branch analysis.
Incremental Analysis seems to suggest that paid editions will still run the full analysis to decorate pull requests
How to configure SonarQube (preview mode) to comment less verbose however seems to suggest that the branching feature should only do analysis on modified parts (just files? just lines?)
Can you please clarify which of these it is and expectations for performance on the pull-request decorations with regards to the full analysis done by the community version?
(I realize that I can just get a trial and find out myself, but I figure having this posted here will help others and save time)
