Admin can't access project

SonarQube 7.1 Build 11001

While logged in as admin, I changed the project group settings and removed “sonar-users”. After applying the settings, I noticed the “sonar-administrators” was unchecked as well. No user has access to this project now!

Attempting to go directly to the project URL forwards me to the login screen.

I would assume that the admins would always have access to all projects. Therefore this scenario should not occur.


As an admin, I was able to goto the projects’ management page and select “Restore access” from the project’s dropdown.

Hi @gps,

As written in your second message, whoever has the ‘Administer System’ permission is able to restore permissions on any project.
