Creation Date filter filters by date of commit, not by creation date of the issue

When using the “Creation Date” filter on SonarCloud, it appears to filter by date of the original commit in git, not by date of creation in SonarCloud.

Whilst this will often by synonymous, where a feature branch has taken a while to develop, this can mean that issues that were introduced as a result of a pull request and the associated merge into our master branch from the feature branch today, show a creation date in the past.

In the case I’ve seen today, where we use a definition of new code being “within the last 30 days” this actually means that some of the issues found are already classified as “old code”.

This seems incorrect - the issue should have a creation of today as it was created today.
