We are starting our journey with SonarCloud + CircleCI + github. We are on the classic plan from github, so we don’t have access to actions on our repository.
As a test, we ran the scanner on our code. We would like to run two work streams, a branch that will track pre-existing issues, and a branch that will only get flagged for any new issues.
I am not sure how to configure this setup in SonarCloud. Right now we have
master, which was originally scanned and has the “backlog” of issues we need to fix. We will clone this into
master-backlog and this is where we will clear the backlog of issues.
Any new PR into
master should only be flagged for new detections in that PR; and appropriate issues to be added to github.
Is this possible?
