SonarQube currently provides the ability to back up and restore quality profiles, which must contain only the activation details of rules within a profile.
But there is currently no way to back up and restore all the customizations done on the rules themselves:
Extended description on any kind of rule Set of tags on a rule (including custom tags)
- Custom rules created from rule templates
Example of use case: you want to synchronize your production environment with the pre-production environment on which you create some custom rules.
With this ticket, only export/import of custom rules will be implemented. Customizations rules import will be done in separate one.
