The last month’s release of SonarLint for IntelliJ enabled you to change the status of a Security Hotspot directly in the IDE, and we’re now adding the possibility to interact with the issue status without leaving your IDE.
If you are connected to SonarQube or SonarCloud, you’ll be able to resolve an issue as Won’t Fix or False Positive (learn more about issues resolutions here).
For the time being, this feature is only available for issues already detected by a previous branch analysis in SonarQube or SonarCloud - we plan to extend this feature to new issues detected in local code over the next few releases.
When you change the status of an issue in your IDE, then the new status will be synced with SonarQube, SonarCloud, and all other contributors using SonarLint in connected mode.
By the way, starting with this release, the synchronization of status changes from SonarQube into the IDE is now happening in real-time also for hotspots, in addition to issues.
