Executed from Azure DevOps pipeline steps
After upgrading from the earlier LTS version to 8.9, I noticed that one of our projects had 20 new bugs. Looking into it, the issues all came from the area path “Website.Elevate/Tests/src/…” so I navigated to “Project Settings->GeneralSettings->Analysis Scope” and added the source file exclusions as follows:
However, the 20 bugs remained after I ran the build in AzureDevOps.
I then added the sonar.exclusions key to our “Prepare analysis on SQ” build step, which should be equivalent to using the UI, but this time it worked.
I am able to replicate this behavior on another one of our projects. I have a workaround of course, but I would like to be able to use the UI area for exclusions.
