When analyzing merge request in comparison to what branch are issues considered as NEW

This is more a question rather than issue.
I am curious, when sonar is run from gitlab pull request environment, it reports only NEW issues. I am curious when it happens with what branch comparison is happening? With pull request-target branch or pull request source branch? or with a base (master) branch?

Thank you

Hey there.

During Pull Request Analysis, changed files/lines is calculated as compared to the target branch. Essentially – the same as when you view the pull request diff in your DevOps Platform (showing the lines added and removed).

Only issues on changed lines are reported in PR analysis.

thatnk you
