Does SonarLint in IntelliJ send data to the cloud?


We’d like to use the SonarLint plugin in IntelliJ, but it is unclear to us what/how much data is sent to the internet/cloud. Does SonarLint evaluate the rules locally if nothing is configured? What if a self-hosted SonarQube instance is used? Does the plugin only communicate with the self-hosted server?

Kind regards

Hey there.

We have a telemetry mechanism to monitor performance and feature usage. This can be disabled in the Preferences > Tools > About (where you can also see a sample of the data sent).

Connected Mode (if you connect your SonarLint installation to a SonarQube server) has no impact on the data sent to SonarSource.
