This feature is deprecated since SonarQube 6.6. It was kept as a technical way to implement PR analysis.
SonarQube now provide the native support for short-lived branches and PR analysis. This mode can finally be dropped.
With this removal, the support for the parameter sonar.analysis.mode will also be dropped.
On scanner side:
- drop all classes related to local issue tracking
- drop json report code
- fail the analysis when parameter sonar.analysis.mode=issue/preview is detected
On server side:
- remove all special cases made for preview mode when loading batch/project and settings
- deprecate WS /api/sources/hash
