  • what are you trying to achieve
    I am trying to make an analysis of our branches and get valid results before enabling sonarqube to fail our pipelines when new findings are made. For some branches it seems SonarQube does not find any new code lines but several findings.

E.g. the branch, where the screenshot below is from, has changes to two files that are covered by the analysis. No changed lines are found but old findings show up in completely unrelated files and according to the log the changed class is analyzed without any problems.

For other branches the findings and changed lines seem to line up properly but others it seems far off.


Your version is past EOL. You should upgrade to either the latest version or the current LTS at your earliest convenience. Your upgrade path is:

8.9.10 → 9.9.1 → 10.2 (last step optional)
