Cross Project Duplication Detection

Must-share information (formatted with Markdown):

  • which versions are you using (SonarQube, Scanner, Plugin, and any relevant extension)
  • how is SonarQube deployed: zip, Docker, Helm
  • what are you trying to achieve
  • what have you tried so far to achieve this

Do not share screenshots of logs – share the text itself (bonus points for being well-formatted)!

I’m using community edition version 8.9.1, and I’m encountering issues with the Cross project duplication detection feature. After running a test, I noticed that there’s no indicator showing whether such detection occurred or if the project duplication process is completed. Please forgive any misunderstandings, as I’m still new to this tool.


Your version is past EOL. You should upgrade to either the latest version or the current LTA (long-term active version) at your earliest convenience. Your upgrade path is:

8.9.1 → 9.9.4 → 10.5.1 (last step optional)

If you have questions about upgrading, feel free to open a new thread for that here.

Regarding your question, there is no such indicator.


Hi Ann,
Thank you for sharing that information. Will this enable the use of the project duplication feature?


Project-level duplication detection was already available. That doesn’t change.


Understood, thank you so much Ann
