In SonarQube 8.7, take the example of the "Sonar way " Java quality profile. I clicked on one of the inactive rules, which brings me to a list that filters those rules. When I hover over the “Deactivate” button for an inactive rule, the tooltip appears saying the rules can’t be deactivated, which makes some sense but those rules were already inactive, so it's not clear.
- Inactive rules should have their button disabled with the text “Activate”, not “Deactivate”.
- The tooltip for inactive rules should say “Rules in built-in Quality Profiles can’t be activated.”, not “…deactivated.”.
