SonarLint and SonarQube have different reports


We are using SonarLint and SonarQube for our project. For the major build checks we are running the software on SonarQube, but for short checks, developers use the SonarLint v5.0 plug-in for Eclipse. SonarLint plugin is binded to the SonarQube server. The issue we are facing is that the local plug-in, when run, does not recognize the PMD and Checkstyle rules configured on the server.

It is my understanding that if the SonarLint project is binded tu the SonarQube server the local run shall recognize all the rules in the configured profile, even though SonarLint does not support the rules on itslef. Is this the correct understanding, or do we need to make extra configurations to the plug-in?

Thank you!
