SonarCloud picking up new issues on really old code

Hey there.

A new version of our Javascript analyzer was deployed to SonarCloud a few days ago, and indeed included a change to S1172.

Unfortunately on SonarCloud, when analyzers are updated and new issues are raised because of those changes, those new issues are not backdated. This is different from SonarQube which backdates such issues.

There’s unfortunately not much that can be done, except adding this case internally (and I really hope we can do something to improve this, so reports like this are very welcome).

Sorry for the inconvenience.
