SonarQube Issues Appearance

Hello everyone,

I was wondering if it is possible to change the way issues are displayed? We have a custom plugin that generates new issues using a third party analyzer. The error messages for these issues contain a bit of information that would be nice to have on a new line. Below is an image of what the issue currently looks like but we would like to be able to see it like this:

ElementName: msgCode
ElementType: FIELD
Error: IVF Or Hibernate Validator missing


I know that when an issue message is very long, it will wrap to multiple lines. (BTW, there’s also a char limit, after which the message is chopped off) I don’t know whether newlines or explicit <br/>s will be honored, but have you tried that?


Hi @ganncamp,

Thank you for your response! I tried both of these things but had no luck. I’ll see how to make the message look prettier on one line.

Thank you for your help!
