Extend Quality Profile not working

  • ALM used GitHub
  • CI system used Github Actions
  • Languages of the repository C#
  • Steps to reproduce
    Extend a quality profile that has multiple rules in it.
    The new quality profile will not be extended from the previous selected quality profile, but will be created as an empty quality profile. Not understading why.

Hello @Friendry,

Welcome to the community!

Could you provide more detailed steps that lead to this problem? I just tried extending the default Sonar way C# Quality Profile and it worked without issues.


Hello @Martin_Bednorz ,
Thanks for replying!
Does the extended profile have all the rules that the base profile from which you extended contain? For me when I extend the profile is created as an empty one. I’ve attached a picture of how it’s shown

Hello @Friendry ,

This seems to be a bug on our side. You can use the following workaround to get an extended profile:

  1. Go to the empty extended profile.
  2. Click on Change Parent on the top right.
  3. Select the Sonar way profile.

That worked!

Thanks a lot @Martin_Bednorz !
