Unique Issue Identifier

  • The version of SonarQube:
  • The documents explain how an issue is considered ‘new’. Is there any unique issue identifier associated with issues? So that, if the same issue reappears, the ID would be the same as before.


IIRC, internally we assign a GUID to each issue. And when an issue reappears before housekeeping deletes it, it’s re-opened instead of re-created. But that’s really unrelated to its having a GUID. Instead, it’s about what you’ve already read in the docs about when an issue is considered new.
