Developer Edition Does not allow to change main branch for a specific project

  • Developer Edition
  • Version 9.9.4 (build 87374)
    I set in the main (sonar.projectCreation.mainBranchName) to development.
    But for some projects that we have the main branch in the “project/branches” view is still “main”.
    The documentation states you can change that by opening the “cog” menu.
    But that shows me only rename!

Do I have to delete the actual development branch, and rename rename main to development?

Hey there.

Changing the main branch of a project became supported in the v10.x series of SonarQube

In SonarQube 9.9, yes.
