we’re using SonarQube Version 188.8.131.52455, Scanner: 4.4
We’re struggling to understand some metrics reported by SonarQube platform, particularly we need your assistance when it comes to get information about fixed issues in a specific project.
We prepare periodic reports that summarize the state of each project we’re working on and, based on a sample taken on January 2020, we detected about 175 fixed issues on a single project.
Now we’ve run a new analysis on the same project and fixed issues are only ten. Among the ten fixed issues we see two that are dated Feb 8 2019, that suggests that no age based purging activity has been performed. Nevertheless, where the other fixed issues are gone?
We saw that our general setting for “Default New Code Period behavior” is the default (Previous version). We’ve also noted that general setting “Delete closed issues after” is 30 days, related to this specific setting we have noticed that many (fixed) closed issues are instead still present in the database even after a year, see example below:
Generally speaking we’d like to have a better understanding of how “fixed issues” statistics are calculated including, but not limited to, the setting of a new code period.
Thanks for your attention. We’re looking forward to your reply.
All the best,
