We have migrated from SonarQube 6.7.6 to SonarQube 7.9.1.
We have observed an usability issue with the file links in the issue page.
Previously in SonarQube 6.7.6, the file path used to be a hyperlink, which used to help us to navigate to the file and check the full path.
This is especially useful, if the file path is long and if there are many files with same name (consider an example of web.xml or some configuration file which is present in several directories).
With the hyperlink for file being removed, it is difficult to search for file in the “code” tab as it lists many files matching the name.
Can you please let us know a better way to search for files in this case.
Note - In SonarQube 6.7, we are using multi-module projects and we are using the same in SonarQube 7.9.1 as well (by specifying sonar.modules).
As you probably know modules support had been dropped in SQ (see MMF-365). I think we remove those links at this moment because we also reworked several pages and search facets.
Anyway, clicking on an issue of a file directly open the file at the right location, and the full path can be seen here. So the link on the file itself is not really necessary.
Yes the file is opened at the right location.
If the file location is long, we see it represented as below
For this case, we want to know the full path of myfile.xml.
Any suggestions on how to know the full path ?
Thanks in advance.
Any suggestions on above ?
We recently addressed this UX issue into SONAR-12199: Add a copy button next to the breadcrumb to ease the copy of the file name
As you can see it’s available since the 8.0 version, then not on the 7.9 LTS.
