      Description

      As described in JENKINS-8069, the FindBugs plugin has changed from displaying
      bug priority to displaying bug rank. Unfortunately, it still calls it "priority".
      At the very least, it should change to using the word "rank" when displaying the
      results.

      Ideally, it would also allow you to choose whether to sort bugs based on priority
      or rank.

      And, assuming it allows only three buckets of ranks, it should allow you to configure
      which ranks are displayed in each bucket.

      Or, even better, it should support as many buckets as there are ranks.

          Hi Keith, interested in implementing that feature?

          I think we can add a checkbox in the configuration screen that determines whether the rank or findbugs priority is used as plug-in 'priority'. Moreover, we should specify in that screen what the mapping of rank or findbugs priority to plug-in 'priority' will be.

          Additionally we can add rank as field in Bug so that it could be displayed in the views.

          What do you think?

          Hi Prof. Hafner,

          I'm using Findbugs Plugin v. 4.56, and I'm still unable to configure which ranks are displayed in each plugin priority (high, normal and low).

          Maye I could provide a patch... Would you have any jump-starting tips, like which files I'll probably need to change?

          Thanks!

          Please create a new feature issue in Jira rather than opening this already fixed one.

          I can provide there some more details on how to implement that.
