Hello @SenthilKumarB,

Welcome to the SonarSource community. :wave:. I hope you’ll like it.
Did you add your custom rule to the quality profile used for the analyzed project ?
If no, that’s probably the problem
If yes, please show me more stuff:

  • A screenshot of your rule
  • An evidence that the rule is in the quality profile used during the project analysis
  • A screenshot of the code snippet where you expect the rule to raise an issue that is not raised (a false negative)
