Can SonarQube Community edition be used with BitBucket cloud

Our organisation is currently using SonarQube to scan code repos hosted in cloud Git repos (BitBucket cloud). Someone suggested that this is not a valid “supported” use case for SonarQube, and we should not be using Community edition for cloud-hosted repos. Please can anyone confirm/deny this?

Must-share information:

  • Using v6.0 of SonarQube
  • Want to run analysis scans against code (Java predominantly) held in BitBucket cloud repos
  • We have this up and running, but just wanted to check it’s a “supported” usage


Welcome to the community!

You’re more than 2 LTSs behind. SonarQube 6.0 is way, waaay past EOL. You should upgrade immediately. Your upgrade path is:

6.0 -> 6.7.7 -> 7.9.4 -> 8.5 (last step optional)

To be clear, even in the most recent, commercial edition, there’s no direct ALM integration with Bitbucket Cloud; I’m told it’s an entirely different API from BB Server & we just haven’t gotten there yet.

However, that shouldn’t keep you from setting up your CI/CD engine to check out your BB Cloud repo and performing the normal build and analysis. In short, this should work just fine.

Once you upgrade, that is.
