Sonar activity marking old issues as new

Hello @mbastardo.excentia

I see here two different topics.

  1. “New” issues are raised in the old code

In fact, this is a valid behavior (check this thread for some explanations).
Indeed in many cases, SonarCloud will backdate issues to the date of source code (list of backdating cases).

If you believe that your issues should have been backdated and that it’s a bug on our side, let’s better understand your case.

  1. Activity graph display

The activity graph just shows the overall number of issues in the timeline. Even if issues are backdated (which is not your case), you will see a spike, as past ‘issues’ are not recomputed. I imagine that can be confusing, that’s a current limitation we have.
