Adding SCM account in community edition


I am using the Sonarqube Community Edition which has Version 9.9 (build 65466). I have created multiple users and at the bottom, I can see the Add SCM Accounts section.

I have tried to figure out how this works but am too confused. Please help me know how to add an SCM account in the Community edition Sonarqube and what is its real-world use-case.



That field is for this type of use case:

Name: Joe Dev
SCM account: wildebeast3

When the user’s SCM login can logically be derived from the email address (i.e. it’s the same as what’s left of the @), then we do that automatically. But when it can’t, you can fill the gap using that field. Otherwise, there’s no need to use it.
