I have recently upgraded to version 8.9 LTS SQ from the previous LTS version. I have noticed that our code smells have jumped WAY up on our projects and 99.9% of them are from MSBuild’s third-party Roslyn analyzer. I don’t mind it finding more things to fix, but it is picking up code smells from files I have marked to be excluded. I would like confirmation that this is expected behavior?
My plan is to turn the “exclude external analyzers” toggle on in Admin settings, but I wanted confirmation first in case there is something I’m missing with my exclusions.
UPDATE: Having turned on the flag, I’m still getting some test files picked up so I have another question open for my exclusion patterns. That being said, I’m still curious about if the results from the 3rd party source would consider my exclusions.
