Custom Quality Profile in Sonarcloud

I have created a custom quality profile from the default quality profile for use by few of our projects. So when creating and using a custom quality profile, I would like to know

  • When any new updates/rule depreciation happens to default quality profiles does this change gets updated automatically to the custom quality profile created?

  • Do you have any documentation on how the changes can be applied if this needs to be manually done ?

Welcome to the community! (sorry for the delayed response)

The behavior of the quality profiles is documented on our Quality Profiles page.

Quoting from our documentation:

Any profile that inherits from another Quality Profile will be updated when the parent Quality Profile is updated.

If you ever need something like that, the same documentation page explains this too. Basically, you can filter active rules by quality profile, and then use a bulk action to active them in another quality profile.
