Authentication Error after successful install and configuration of Community Edition

Must-share information (formatted with Markdown):

  • which versions are you using (SonarQube, Scanner, Plugin, and any relevant extension)
    → Installed Sonarqube community edition: sonarqube-9.4.0.54424 on Ubuntu 20.04.4 LTS

  • what are you trying to achieve
    → Trying to login Web UI and got authentication error in BUI and here is the line that is logged in access.log
    x.x.x.x- - [23/May/2022:01:39:41 +0000] "POST /api/authentication/login HTTP/1.1" 401 - "http://<IP address>:9000/sessions/new?return_to=%2F" "Mozilla/5.0 (X11; CrOS x86_64 14588.98.0) AppleWebKit/537.36 (KHTML, like Gecko) Chrome/101.0.4951.59 Safari/537.36" "AYDthEMG/5DiUoj6AAAk"

  • what have you tried so far to achieve this
    → Browsed the existing topics related to this error and found this topic: Authentication Failed | First time Deploying SonarQube on Kubernetes but this does not seem to be related to the error that I’m seeing.

Could someone help me unblocking this issue.

Best regards,

Hi Ram,

glad to see you here and a heartfelt welcome to the community that I am also relatively new to!

Can you confirm that you installed SonarQube according to the documentation? The initial login information should be

username: admin
password: admin

Perhaps also confirm that your input was correct, i.e. Caps Lock wasn’t turned on and your keyboard was set to the expected language.
