Cannot download build-wrapper from documented URL

This is my first time posting here, as well as my first time working with SonarQube. I am not a developer, but I am a Systems Admin supporting a SonarQube installation. One of the developers sent me the documentation he found online regarding downloading the C/C++ Build Wrapper. The document mentions downloading the files from: http://localhost:9000/static/cpp/, however, that directory does not appear to exist on our site. Could someone help point me in the right direction?


Hi Kory,

Since we’re talking analysis of C/C++ code here, let’s start from the beginning in order of importance:

  • you must first make sure that Analysis of C/C++/Obj-C code is enabled on your SonarQube instance (it’s a commercial feature)
  • once it’s active on your SonarQube instance (and make sure to be on latest version), then you can follow the SonarCFamily documentation indeed. For example for C/C++ on Linux:

You can download the Build Wrapper directly from your SonarQube Server, so that its version perfectly matches your version of the plugin:
Build Wrapper for Linux can be downloaded from URL http://localhost:9000/static/cpp/

(localhost obviously being if you’re running it locally where SonarQube is running)

It appears that we installed the community edition, I do have a key, so I’m in the process of upgrading, let me get that taken care of and I’ll get back to you. Thanks for your quick reply!

Just wanted to follow up and let you know that updating to the Enterprise edition and rebooting the server worked for me. I am now able to download the files without any issue!

Thank you!

I have installed community edition in our server not planning to upgrade it to developer/enterprise edition, Is there any option to enable, so that i can download the build wrapper from my sonar server?
