External issues status updation


I have issues reported for my project through PMD analysis and am allowing sonarqube to consume the report through external properties.
Now I can see the external issues in sonar UI.but am not able to change the issue status from open to confirmed…there is no dropdown available.
I am using SonarQube 8.5.1 version.

Could someone help how will be able to change the issue status for these?


The generation of those issues is configured external to SonarQube. The management of them must be handled externally as well. There is no facility to manage external issues within SonarQube.
