Technical debt is one of the major concepts SonarQube deals with. The technical debt of a file is the sum of the technical debt contributed by each issue detected on this file.
The expanded Technical Debt and Issues tab offers three different kinds of actions to understand and manage a file's technical debt:
- Time Changes, to display only issues added since a given point (see Differential Views for more information).
- Resolution / Severity / Rule filters, to display only certain issues on the currently selected period.
- Bulk Change, to make changes on the issues that are currently displayed.
To better understand how to review issues (comment, assign, link to an action plan, ... etc), please read Reviewing Issues.
