Creation of an alert message popup banner and intergrate with sonarqube


(Yash Brahmani) #1

Must-share information (formatted with Markdown):

  • which versions are you using (SonarQube, Scanner, Plugin, and any relevant extension)
    Sonarqube 5.6.3
  • what are you trying to achieve
    I want to create a popup message when ever we open sonarqube url.
  • what have you tried so far to achieve this
    I have a bootstrap html file ready. How can I integrate the same with the current Ruby on rails code of sonarqube? Please help

The current version of SonarQube is 7.3 (7.4 imminent) and the current LTS is 6.7.5. You’re going to have a hard time finding support for any version before that, and you should upgrade at your earliest convenience.

Also, we moved away from using Ruby very deliberately - because we didn’t want to deal with it any more - so that’s another reason you’re going to find it hard to get support for your request.

Nonetheless, I’ll bite and ask: why do you want to do this?

Hi Ann,
I did it.
Actually I wanted our users to move from the legacy sonarqube 5.6.3 instance to sonarqube 6.7.1 after which I can plan for further upgrades to 6.7.5.
We currently have 4legacy instance running on different sonarqube version say 5.x versions. I want to get all the users to migrate to sonarqube 6.7.1 which is developed as a service for our users.
This will help us in tracking in users and providing new features to users.
I have developed a banner which will popup each time the user tries to refresh the page. This banner displays a message which tells the user to use the sonarqube 6.7.1 which is developed for them to use.
