Enterprise SonarQube server, and SonarCloud capabilities


(Sanket Agarwal) #1

Must-share information (formatted with Markdown):

  • which versions are you using (SonarQube, Scanner, Plugin, and any relevant extension) - N/A
  • what are you trying to achieve - SonarCube installed
  • what have you tried so far to achieve this - Played around with the hosted solution on Sonarcloud.io

Hi Sonarcube team,

I am seeing if we can use Sonarcube for our team’s need for Code quality, Automated testing reporting, coverage etc. I am seeing Sonar as a possible solution for this. My questions are manifold to understand applicability for this tool for our purposes:

a) Hosting Sonarcube server
– I see there’s a hosted server that I can see public projects in (as well as their analysis). Can I use this for enterprise scale?
– Can I get away from having to deploy the server and having to maintain it hence?
– I was having trouble setting up plugins in the hosted server on sonarcloud.io (golang). All the plugin installation instructions point to having a self installed server. I could not find Administration -> Marketplace
b) About testing
– I see that I can trigger tests reports by executing them using the scanner (and use the golang test -v plugin)
– We have an automated test suite for integration tests which does not provide much value as Coverage tool but has more value when it comes to pass/fail%. I see there’s some documentation to upload arbitrary test results. We plan to use it across tests in Frontend/Mobile/Backend services. Is this something that is inherently supported as a use case?

Thanks for your guidance here.

Hi Sanket,

I’ve recategorized this as being about SonarCloud since your first several questions are really about it. In general, it’s best to limit yourself to one question/topic per thread, so feel free to edit topic ‘b)’ out of the original post and start a new thread with it.

To answer your questions about SonarCloud:

  • You can use SonarCloud for enterprise needs and scale. However, you won’t get the governance features which come with the SonarQube Enterprise edition (that you need to install on premise)
  • If the scope of SonarCloud fits your needs, using this service will indeed save you from installing and maintaining the server.
  • It is not possible to install plugins on SonarCloud.
