Does SonarABAP run within the SAP environment?

I’m contemplating using SonarQube with SonarABAP for scanning our SAP ABAP code (presumably the latest version of both). It’s not clear to me whether SonarQube can access code within the SAP environment (not TWDI) or whether we would have to export it. Thoughts?


The code will need to be available on the file system of the machine performing analysis before sonar-scanner can access it. There’s an example of ABAP code extraction in the documentation for SonarABAP

Best regards,
