Git hashes should link back to GitHub

When I’m looking at the blame information tied to an issue SonarCloud will show several details such as the author, date and git hash. I can copy paste the git hash and craft an url back to the commit view on GitHub, but it would be much more convenient if a link could be provided automatically for projects hosted on GitHub.com.

Hi,

Would you mind fleshing out why you need to get quickly/easily from SonarCloud to the commit view in the DevOps Platform?

For the record, I agree it makes sense, but having a full use case from a user carries more weight. :smiley:

And so you know, I’m moving this topic to a new category called PM for a Day, which you can read about here. We’ve created it in an attempt to foster richer conversations around feature requests.

Here’s the new topic template. It would be great if you have anything along these lines to add:

  • What are you trying to accomplish?
  • Why does this matter to you?
  • Why should it be a priority now?
  • How would that look in the product? Can you imagine any alternatives?
  • How would we know it works well?

Sure @ganncamp,

When reviewing existing issues in SonarCloud the commit information is very useful to identify the author, commit date and commit ID. Sometimes getting further context in why/how the code was written being able to get to the GitHub view (or GitLab if it applies), would allows us to get further context about the change so we can get a more comprehensive view of the change and help in deciding on the best next step on how to resolve the issue.
