SonarLint for IntelliJ v7.3

This release delivers additional help to assist whilst investigating injection vulnerabilities in your IDE, plus additional support for Front-end Developers!

We have introduced more structured rule descriptions to help you better understand injection vulnerabilities. Now, when investigating taint vulnerabilities detected by SonarQube analysis directly in your IDE, you can not only visualize the data injection flows directly in the source code but also understand the potential impact and how to fix it.

In addition, this version helps all Front-end Developers deliver Clean Code by extending support for the following front-end languages:

  • CSS analysis in all IntelliJ IDEs supported by SonarLint
  • JavaScript, TypeScript, and HTML in Rider

SonarLint for IntelliJ v7.0

This release brings additional productivity enhancements for teams using Connected Mode to SonarQube 9.6 and above.

Using Connected Mode to SonarQube, and delivering access to the complete Sonar solution, issue synchronization will happen automatically and in real-time, thanks to server-sent events.

Thus, when suppressing an issue in SonarQube, or when the branch analysis detects a new SQL injection, this will be synced to SonarLint in seconds - with no need to refresh - ensuring team alignment.

As a reminder, binding your local project to SonarQube using Connected Mode:

  • Keeps noise to a minimum by avoiding reporting any issues already reviewed and marked as “Won’t Fix” or “False Positive” by yourself or other contributors in SonarQube.

  • Will pull, and help you investigate, any taint vulnerabilities (e.g., SQL injections) detected by SonarQube (starting from Developer Edition) in your IntelliJ IDE.

This release enables SonarLint’s branch support within IntelliJ, and more!

Simply bind your local project to SonarQube using Connected Mode so you can focus on relevant issues in your IDE. No additional configuration is required, and it's available across the full range of Sonar supported JetBrains IDEs!

In addition, we’ve added 15 additional Quick Fixes for C++ developers using CLion. You can browse all C++ rules where we provide Quick Fixes here.
