Third partly Issues are not displayed properly on SonarQube Issue UI

Describe the bug
When PC lint creates a reference message (L893, L891) to another massage, the reference message is placed next to the main issue in the PC-Lint export file so it’s easy to locate the main Issue . But When importing this to sonarqube the connection between the reference and the original message is lost, since the issues are placed anywhere in the source code.

Expected behavior
As Issue handled by Sonarqube is described in Official doc : Issues | SonarQube Docs refer Understanding issue context
The Reference message should points out the main Issue in SonarQube UI so that it can be easy handled.

Steps to create Issue

  1. Create PC-Lint Report. xml with Some reference messages which points the main Issue message and pass it to SonarQube
  2. When you click on reference messages on SonarQube UI it will not provide you the actual main Issue message which causing the additional reference messages.

Desktop (please complete the following information):

  • OS: Windows
  • SonarQube version: 8.9.2 LTS
  • cxx plugin version: 2.0.4 (build 2835)
  • sonar-scanner version: 4.7

I’m raising the Issue in SonarQube Community cause it’s actually a UI related Issue which can be fixed by the SonarQube not some other Third party Plugins.

Let me known your Points on this or any other Information required from My end.
