Quality gates updating iteself

Must-share information (formatted with Markdown):

  • which versions are you using (SonarQube, Scanner, Plugin, and any relevant extension)
    SonarQube Enterprise Edition 8.7.1
  • what are you trying to achieve
    2 weeks back I have fixed the SQ issues of my project thereby making SQ quality gates getting passesd but somehow yesterday after a new PR is merged the Quality gate is breaking I am unable to figure out as the Code duplication and code coverage issue mentioned on the dashboard are not part of my checkin and there hasnt been any code commit to the repo since last two weeks
  • what have you tried so far to achieve this
    Going through the files which are mentioned in code duplication and code coverage columns


It sounds like:

  • your PR had fewer than 20 changed lines
  • thus coverage and duplications were ignored by the PR Quality Gate
  • your overall code base was right on the edge of failing for either coverage or duplications and your PR pushed it over the edge.
