Resolved issues are not closing automatically

Template for a good bug report, formatted with Markdown:

  • versions used (SonarQube, Scanner, Plugin, and any relevant extension): Sonarqube 6.1 Community Edition
  • error observed (wrap logs/code around triple quote ``` for proper formatting)
  • steps to reproduce
  • potential workaround

P.S.: use the #bug:fault sub-category if you’re hitting a specific crash/error , or the #bug:fp sub-category for rules-related behaviour
We have some of the issues resolved manually 1 year back from now and they are still showing in “Resolved” status, whereas it next analysis it should have been marked as closed .
For example: Issue marked as resolved manually on June 6,2017 , is still showing as “Resolved” as of 10/15/2018 and looking at history of the project, there were multiple scan ran after June ,2017 still the issue didn’t mark as closed.
Could you please let us know what could be the reason of this?


What was the resolution? If they were resolved False Positive, or Won’t Fix, then the behavior you’re seeing is exactly what is intended.


Hi Ann-
Thanks for your response! Yes, they are resolved as false +ve. Thanks for clarifying.
