Supporting SCM Providers
SonarQube Scanner uses information from the project's SCM, if available, to:
- Assign a new issue to the person who introduced it. The last committer on the related line of code is considered to be the author of the issue.
- Estimate the coverage on New Code, including added and changed code since in your New Code.
- Display the most recent commit on each line the code viewer.
The only required SCM command is "blame", which gets the last committer of each line for a given file. This command is executed by a SonarQube plugin through the extension point
org.sonar.api.batch.scm.ScmProvider. See the embedded SCM integrations, for instance Git, for more details.
