DB Copy tool -- is this tool version-specific?

Must-share information (formatted with Markdown):

  • which versions are you using: SonarQube Enterprise 9.0
  • how is SonarQube deployed: zip
  • what are you trying to achieve: Migrating from Postgres to MS SQL


I’ve seen many posts here that indicate that the SonarQube DB Copy Tool is for users with paid customer support only. However, it seems to be available on the 9.9 docs but NOT on any other version’s docs: SonarQube database copy tool

If we’re on SonarQube Enterprise 9.0, will the tool from the 9.9 docs page still work for us?


:warning: Make sure you upgrade to SonarQube v9.9 LTS soon, not only to benefit from our Best LTS Ever™, but because soon we will systematically ask users to upgrade when they ask questions about earlier versions of SonarQube, which are now considered unsupported. :smiley:

To answer your question, we open-sourced the DB Copy tool at about the same time we released 9.9, so that’s the first version it shows up for. But it’s not version-specific.

And, of course, pull a backup before you do this. :smiley:


Thanks, Ann! This is great to hear.
