we have a custom quality profile in Sonar.
In the web interface, there are two possibilites to comment on a rule: Add Note or extend description.
My goal is to provide a comment, why certain rules are deactivated (e.g. duplicate in different analysis tools) or enhance the description with hints on how to solve an issue, ....
"Add Note" adds a note, but when I deactivate a rule, the notes are lost. So I tried with "extend description" and this persists the comments beyond deactivation. So that's fine and enough for me.
After carefully commenting on the rules I decided to backup the profile. Nevertheless, neither the xml backup file of the profile nor the sonar backup file contains these extended descriptions.
Is there a chance to backup this data? Is it stored in the database?
