Sonarqube and sonarlint have diferent number of issues

I am running the latest SonarQube version ( and latest sonarlint version (7.2.1) in JetBrains IntelliJ. I have connected the SonarQube instance and add the project key of the project. In the same branch the findings are different in some times the sonarlint plugin finds more issues and in some times finds fewer issues. Although I have checked some specific files and it’s the same finding.

The analysis running for Java/Spring and Javascript/Angular based projects

Has anyone here the same problem ???
Is there any explanation ???

Thank you in advance.

Hey there.

It would help if you gave some specific examples of discrepancies between SonarLint and SonarQube. I would also suggest reading this section of the FAQ (Why are some issues reported by SonarQube/SonarCloud, but not in SonarLint (even with connected mode)?)
