I am working on a pilot deployment of SonarQube and want to pilot the Developer edition. I know I need a trial license to do that and am happy to get that; however, if we do not move forward with the Developer edition, can I simply downgrade to the Community edition by swapping out the installation directory?
Full disclosure, I’ve tried this already with mixed results. In my first attempt once I downgraded to Community edition sonarqube failed to start due to some plugin errors. To resolve I had to dump my extensions volume. In a subsequent attempt; however, I was able to downgrade to Community edition seemingly with no issues, so I’m not sure what to make of that.
I do wish this was the same binary package between editions and could just be alternated by switching out the licenses.
