And a thorough description of the problem / question:

Hi there! All of the sudden, my intentional # NOSONAR warning ignores are not working using sonarlint extension in vscode. For some of our use cases, we like to ignore some warnings by line. What I mean by it’s not working, I am receiving the error warnings in my Problems tab in vscode as if # NOSONAR was not applied. No settings have been changed. Any help would be appreciated.

Hello, welcome to the community! And thank you for reporting this behavior.

I managed to reproduce this issue, although not for all rules. E.g with the following:

#!/usr/bin/env python3

import sys

# Line below raises python:S1186 which is correctly suppressed
def myfunction(): # NOSONAR

def main(*args):
  x = args[0]
  cond = args[1]
  # Line below raises python:S3358 and python:S3923 which are _not_ suppressed
  a = (1 if x else 1) if cond else 1 # NOSONAR

if __name__ == '__main__':

We are going to investigate this behavior with the analyzer team and will keep this thread updated.


Hi @marcisprouse ,

Thanks a lot for reporting this regression.
The following ticket has been created: SONARPY-1046.

The fix is expected to be deployed in SonarCloud in the following days.
