Good day, SonarQube crew.
SonarQube has the ability to scan both master and child branches of code.
Working with a new child branch is intended to provide developers the opportunity to identify new issues before merging.
A develop in team was tasked with reducing the defects discovered on the default/master branch after the aforementioned method was in place.
He then issued a pull request with a separate child branch after creating a new branch from the master branch and fixing some of the issues there.
He cannot say whether problems are fixed, it was discovered after a child branch SQ scan.
As a team, we are aware that it can only be determined once a pull request and the default have been merged.
