Upgraded to * Developer Edition * Version 8.6 (build 39681) today and was planning to leverage Applications (see https://www.sonarqube.org/sonarqube-8-6/ section titled Project aggregation comes to Developer Edition).
The online docs at https://docs.sonarqube.org/latest/user-guide/applications/ say that enterprise edition is required, which contradicts the release notes but maybe it is still true and the release notes are incorrect. Anyway, the docs say " Applications are created and edited in the global Portfolio administration interface: Administration > Configuration > Portfolios" but there is no such screen or any other screen that I can find to define a new application. I am logged in as the admin user.
The only place I saw references to Applications was under Administration > Projects > Management because the drop down let me toggle between Projects and Applications. But the is no button to create new Applications on that screen, only a button to create a new Project.
Do I have to edit something in sonar.properties to enable this functionality? If so, seems that should be mentioned in the upgrade guide.
