Hey there.

This FP might have been fixed by SONARJAVA-3844 (available in SonarQube v9.9 LTS). Can you try the new LTS version to see if the FP persists?

Unfortunately, I’m not in control of my organization’s Sonar maintenance schedule. I’ll try to update the thread when we eventually update. It does appear my organization only updates to LTS versions, so 9.9 might be on the calendar this year
