Create Application button not available

We use SonarQube Enterprise Edition Version 9.4 (build 54424)
My SonarQube user has “Administer system” permissions.
I wanted to try out the “application” feature. The docs state, that there should be a “Create Application button in the upper-right corner of the Projects homepage”. However: I can only see the Create Project button.

Why is the Create Application button not available?


The permissions are actually granular. If you don’t have Create Application, then you don’t see that button. So you’ll need to use your global admin privs to grant yourself Create Applications: Administration → Security → Global Permissions. And then the button should appear.
