Cannot update SonarSwift in Marketplace

Must-share information (formatted with Markdown):

  • which versions are you using (SonarQube, Scanner, Plugin, and any relevant extension)
    SonarQube 7.7, SonarSwift 4.1
  • what are you trying to achieve: Upgrade SonarSwift to at least 4.2
  • what have you tried so far to achieve this: looked at Marketplace but did not see option to upgrade

I need to upgrade SonarSwift to 4.2 at least, to include the following fix:


But in Marketplace I cannot see the option to upgrade (unlike what the documentation describes on how to upgrade plugins):

Since the version of SonarQube (7.7) I’m using is quite old, do I have to upgrade SonarQube in order to have newer version of SonarSwift installed (or upgradable)?


Hello @hzxu,

Yes this is correct. Your SonarQube 7.7 is too old that we don’t keep track anymore of the compatibility of plugins with this version, and therefore there is no automatic installation from the Marketplace.
I encourage you to upgrade to SonarQube 7.9 (our LTS/Long Term Support) version or to 8.4, the latest and greatest (you’ll have to upgrade to 7.9 as an intermediate step anyway).
Then you should be able to upgrade Swift (if the version that you need is not already bundled with the release).
