kotlin:S1481 false-positive unused variable when assigned to hashmap

Hello @Michael_Berner,

Thanks for your message. Unfortunately, I’m not able to reproduce your issue.
And I think I know why. This rule actually relies on the compiler warnings and we had a bunch of problems with this in the past.

The reason why this error is happening is most likely in the incomplete semantic model. So in order to check it I need a little bit more input from your side:

  • logs

  • sonar analysis configuration

  • Are you using Gradle or Maven?

Also, your problem might be similar to this thread: "Unused local variables should be removed" is broken - #8 by Margarita_Nedzelska

And we also have a ticket in the backlog that might help to improve this rule:

Looking forward to your answer!
