SonarCloud UI difference between First Analysis and New Analysis

What is the difference between “First Analysis” and “New Analysis” and why “First Analysis” results don’t include breakdown of fixed vs. new issues? (see screenshot below for example)


A ‘first analysis’ is when you create a new branch in SonarCloud. It sets the baseline for that branch. Since there’s no previous baseline, change metrics (new/added, and fixed/removed) can’t be calculated.

The ‘new analysis’ label… :no_mouth:
It just means there was another / new analysis of an existing branch. TBH, I don’t really understand why it’s there.
