Different betwen issue created date and created date


(Fanny Tan) #1


I want to ask, what is the difference between created at and issue creation date on SonarQube database Issue table?

Which one is displayed on SonarQube web?

Thank you :smiley:

To be honest, I don’t know the answer to your question, and I won’t be investigating it because the database is supposed to be a black box. You shouldn’t need to know. :slight_smile:

Can you share the underlying question / issue you’re trying to handle?

I see.

I just want to verify some of my issues creation date. Some of them is really old, I want to verify if the date of created issues is based on developer commit date, developer push date or date of issues is scanned by SonarQube. Can you help me?

Thank you :smiley:

The answer is truly that “it depends”. There are several cases where we backdate the issue to the commit date (as reported by the SCM, so commit-vs-push will probably be implementation-dependent), and others where we date the issue to the analysis date. The docs give you detail.
