As a SQ Instance Admin i want to see the current email configuration in plaintext somewhere

Hello :wave:

Try to describe the problem or opportunity you are seeing and why it matters. The closer you stick to this topic template, and the more information you provide, the better chance you have to generate a real discussion.

A few questions to help you:

  • What are you trying to accomplish?
    I want to debug or recreate or answer questions relating to the email configuration used

  • Why does this matter to you?
    Because i want to recreate it, debug it or answer questions concerning it

  • How would that look in SonarQube? Alternatives?
    Create API for querying or display email connection details in plaintext in Admin-GUI after manual interaction

  • How would we know it works well?
    The plaintext email connection details are inside the API response or shown in GUI

  • Why should it be a priority now?
    Because everyone who wants to send emails needs this.

Make sure to check out our product roadmap as well, to see if your need is already being considered.

Lets see which interesting followup questions this will trigger…


Hello Daniel,

Thank you for your insight.

We plan to migrate soon SonarQube email configuration from basic authentication to modern authentication. We will review the display of saved fields by then.
