Jetbrains IDE's using remote WSL sonarlint analysis for files not shown

Please provide

  • Operating system:
    Windows 11 22H2 (Host)
    WSL Ubuntu
  • SonarLint plugin version:
  • Programming language you’re coding in:
  • Is connected mode used:
    • No

And a thorough description of the problem / question:
If I launch the IDE from within WSL the inspection statuses on files show on the top right of the editor but when connecting remotely using WSL and the IDE is on the host the inspection statuses on files do not show. Why is this? How do I fix it?

Hi @frank_f

What is the IntelliJ version you are using?
Is the problem only inspection statuses? Can you see the issues shown by SonarLint?
Also, we recently released a new version of SonarLint, can you check if it is the same behavior with the new version


It seems that using jetbrains remote, for me SSH, development, sonarlint is not compatible.
It is working fine when I I am developing locally. But not when I am developing using jetbrains via jetbrains ssh remote development.

I am just installed solarlint today, 5/22/2024.
local host is a mac, remote is a ubuntu docker running on a ubuntu host. ubuntu 22 for both.

Hi @mpechner,

Welcome to the community!

Can you share your JetBrains and SonarLint versions, please?
