Hi @ganncamp,

Indeed I have gone through these links before raising this bug.

As mentioned, I haven’t hosted the sonarqube in some server. It is hosted through Azure App Service which means I cannot login to the app service and I can only restart the app service which is not helpful.

Kindly correct me if I’m wrong and advise further. Thanks.

Hi @Vin0d,

Which kind of instance of SQ are you using on Azure ? is that a docker one ?


Hi @mickaelcaro,

SQ is deployed as a webapp in azure using app service and instance is B1. This is not a docker one.

Kindly let me know for any further information.



Any update on this issue?

I have scaledup the app service plan from “B1” to “B2” and it started working. Is that the instance size issue?
