SonarLint for Visual Studio v6.7 - Support connected mode for JS/TS code

Hello Visual Studio users,

You may have noticed in our recent announcements, that we at Sonar are working hard to improve the connected mode experience in Visual Studio, so that it is easier and more effective for developers working in a team or in a company to define, share and apply the same definition of Clean Code across all developers in the organization.

The good news today is that with the release of the 6.7 version of SonarLint for Visual Studio 2019 and 2022, we’ve made the connected mode advantages available also for JavaScript and TypeScript code (in addition to C#, VB.NET, C, and C++).

As a reminder, when you set up connected mode with SonarQube or SonarCloud, then SonarLint will:

  • Run the same quality profile locally
  • Sync any file or directory inclusions/exclusions
  • Mute any issues already flagged as Won’t Fix or False Positive

In addition, the following extra features are available when using connected mode:

  • You can open a Security Hotspot detected by SonarQube into your IDE for easier review
  • You can investigate complex injection vulnerabilities detected by SonarQube or SonarCloud directly in Visual Studio - SonarLint will help you navigate through the issue’s data flow

Don’t hesitate to leave us your feedback.
