Disable SAML auth and recover admin rights

On our SonarQube environment currently SAML auth is enabled and we are able to access the dashboard using OKTA App tile. however i want to disable this SAML Authentication from server side as we are not have admin rights on console. How to change this

Template for a good bug report, formatted with Markdown:

  • versions used (SonarQube, Scanner, Plugin, and any relevant extension) : * Community Edition
  • Version 7.9.3
  • error observed (wrap logs/code around triple quote ``` for proper formatting) : not able find administrator tab on Sonar Dashboard
  • steps to reproduce
  • potential workaround : Can we revert this SAML authentication to regular authentication

P.S.: use the #bug:fault sub-category if you’re hitting a specific crash/error , or the #bug:fp sub-category for rules-related behaviour


Your version is past EOL. You should upgrade to either the latest version or the current LTS at your earliest convenience. Your upgrade path is:

7.9.3 → 8.9.7 → 9.3 (last step optional)

You may find the Upgrade Guide and the LTS-to-LTS Upgrade Notes helpful. If you have questions about upgrading, feel free to open a new thread for that here.

Regarding your question, the docs should help.

And please note that I’ve edited your post to move the problem statement into the body of the post. It’s a bit long for a title.
