Irrelevant comments on the pull requests

SonarQube Version : [Developer edition]
Issue: Irrelevant comments on the pull requests

  • We have integrated SonarQube with Azure DevOpsServer(ADO)
  • In ADO gated commit branch policy is enabled
  • Quality gate status is also enabled for the PRs
  • In SonarQube we have enabled PR decoration to get the feedback directly on pull requests.
  • For every PR & Master branch we are triggering SonarQube scan

In some cases we are getting irrelevant comments on the PRs, which means we are getting comments for the files which are not even part of the PR. Please refer below images



We are using azure yml pipelines & for checkout we are using following git commands

FOR PR Branches
Set-Location “local path”
git init

git remote add origin “repository URL”

git -c http.extraheader=“AUTHORIZATION: bearer $($env:AccessToken)” fetch --force --prune --progress --no-recurse-submodules origin +refs/heads/:refs/remotes/origin/ +refs/pull/$(System.PullRequest.PullRequestId)/merge:refs/remotes/pull/$(System.PullRequest.PullRequestId)/merge

git c http.extraheader=“AUTHORIZATION: bearer $($env:AccessToken)” lfs fetch origin refs/remotes/pull/$(System.PullRequest.PullRequestId)/merge

git checkout --progress --force refs/remotes/pull/$(System.PullRequest.PullRequestId)/merge

For Master and feature

git clone --single-branch --branch “branchName” --depth 1 -c http.extraheader=“AUTHORIZATION: bearer $($env:AccessToken)” “repository URL” “local path”
