We are running a locally hosted SonarQube Developer edition Version 8.4.1 (build 35646) and have it succesfully integrated with Azure Devops Services
As long as we are logged in into the SonarQube environment we can see the project status badges.
The badges disappear as soon as we copy the link to the badge and add it to a resource outside of the SonarQube webinterface. The developer tools of the used webbrowser shows a 404 status code, indicating issues with authentication / authorization.
This way, the badge functionality provided by SonarQube is of limited added value since badges cannot be incorporated in a general dashboard.
Any help on how to resolve these authentication issues is highly appreciated.
