I wanted to confirm quality gate behaviour for short-lived branches. It seems the short-lived branches do not adhere to the Quality Gate assigned to a project. Do the quality gate profiles only apply to long-lived branches?
For example, a Quality Gate for one of my projects contains a rules to throw warnings instead of a errors. However the sonar quality gate in my gitlab pipeline will fail (on a short-lived branch).
SonarQube analysis indicates that quality gate is failed.
