So, in order to keep control of your technical debt on your current developments, SonarQube TM offers the Reviews feature.


A review has four possible status: Open, Resolved, Reopened and Closed. SonarQube TM automatically takes care of closing a review as soon as its underlying violation gets resolved, which means that no one can close an issue manually.

Reviews can be managed in action plans.
