Sonar raise new issues on old code

  • Sonarqube 7.2, sonar-maven-plugin:
  • error observed: When scan the java code for the very fisrt time, there are no “new” issues. After some re analysis new issues are reopenned on old code without any code change nor rules or quality profiles. THis behaviour is very strange and we struggle tring to find out the root cause but in vain. Could you please help ?


Welcome to the community!

7.2 is past EOL; you should upgrade immediately. Your upgrade path is:

7.2 -> 7.9.4 -> 8.5 (this step is optional)

Once you’re on a recent version, the docs about which issues are new and which are backdated may help.
