How to check if bugs found in default branch have been resolved in pull request branch

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.

Hey there.

You can vote for this roadmap item.

Otherwise, pending that, you would need to create a branch analysis to see if the issue is still in the overall code.
