Datadog integration instance config components_discovery has no effect

Must-share information (formatted with Markdown):

  • which versions are you using (SonarQube, Scanner, Plugin, and any relevant extension)
    SonarQube 9.7.1 deployed via helm charts

  • what are you trying to achieve
    Set up Datadog integration to report metrics for all projects

  • what have you tried so far to achieve this

  1. Tried to use the component_discovery wildcard to auto discovery projects on our sonarqube instance. I’ve tried setting the wildcard to be “." or "a” and running sonar-scanner on a project that adheres to that wildcard. Metrics does not get reported.
  2. Authentication is not an issue since I’ve tried listing individual projects under components and metrics were properly reported to Datadog. But I do not want to update this list manually to track new projects.

Reference to the config in our helm chart

              "is_jmx": false,
              "web_endpoint": "<link to our instance>",
              "auth_type": "basic",
              "username": "<username>",
              "password": "<password>",
              "default_tag": "project_key",
              "components": {},
              "components_discovery": {
                "limit": 100,
                "include": {
                  "t*": {
                    "tag": "project_key"

Hey there.

It looks like you’re trying to use Datadog’s integration with SonarQube – and since it is maintained by Datadog, your best bet is probably to reach out to them.
