We have on our own hosted SonarQube (Version 6.7.3) lowered rule squid:S00105 “Tabulation characters should not be used” to Info severity.
Then when I open a file with tab charactes in my IntelliJ IDEA Ultimate version, the IDEA show no errors and no warnings.
Only the SonarLint plugin is showing this one issue (squid:S00105) with info severity in the “Sonarlint” tab.
On the top of editor panel I can see yellow bar with the text “Replace all tab characters in this file by sequence of white-spaces.”
In the editor panel in the top right corner I can see green tick square (IDEA’s analysis) - there are no problems.
Then I change this file somehow and I go to Commit window, I have there checked checkbox “Perform code analysis”. Then if I press “Commit” it run the analysis and reports 1 warning to be found and if I open the warnings I can see there is warning “Replace all tab characters in this file by sequence of white-spaces.”
From my point of view the info-severity rules shouldn’t be reported as warning.
I am not sure if I am missing some settings to only report non-info severity rules as warning or if this is a bug of Sonarlint.
Can someone help me?
