In some cases where a Compute Engine task has to deal with a big project and many files changed since the previous analysis, the “file move detection” step can heavily affect performance and block the analysis of the project for an unknown period of time.
SonarQube administrators should have a way to deactivate this detection for selected projects.
- A setting General > File Move > File move detection should allow project administrators to deactivate file move detection at the project level.
default value: false
description: If set to true, file move won't be detected. Moved/renamed files and related issues will be reported as new.
The setting should also be available for system administrators at the global level.
- A log should be added in Compute Engine logs, at DEBUG level, to indicate
- when file move detection starts
- or if file move detection is deactivated and thus skipped
The log which indicates the end of the step remains.
