As an issue administrator in SonarQube, I want to be able to edit the remediation effort values of the individual issues in order to achieve a more accurate estimation of the total debt.
Most importantly, I want to put an individual “price tag” on the “TODO” (squid:S1135) and “FIXME” issues. Naturally, these can have varying efforts. SonarQube finds these issues, but does not know the costs, so they are not included in the technical debt summary. As a human, I am able to understand that
// TODO check and fix spelling in Javadoc of this method might cost at most a few minutes, while
// TODO rewrite this package to support generics might take several days or even weeks. If I could manually edit these costs in the issues overview, they could be considered when calculating the total technical debt.
Perhaps this is already possible, but I don’t know how to do this?
