This plugin offers special reporting on issues from the Squid NoSonar rule, which is available for multiple languages, and the Java-only Checkstyle ToDoComment rule. Each of these rules finds instances of specialized comments, or tags found in the code, such as @todo or //TODO or //NOSONAR.

The reporting is done by a widget that shows total number of tags found and distribution by tag. A split is done between mandatory and optional tags. Mandatory tags are tags that have been defined with a CRITICAL or BLOCKER priority when activating the rule, optional are the ones with MAJOR, MINOR or INFO priority.
