GitHub authentication on SonarCloud: slight change

Hi SonarCloud users,

We would like to let you know that we will make changes on SonarCloud that will slightly modify the way to authenticate in SonarCloud for GitHub users.

Currently, authentication on SonarCloud is done through a GitHub OAuth Application. Starting this week, it will be done via our SonarCloud GitHub Application.

Concretely, what will happen for you ?
As soon as you log in or create your account, you will be asked to accept the GitHub Application permissions to view your email address as it shown below, and that’s it !

Cheers :slight_smile:


Great news, thx! Does it also mean you’re considering pushing forward into seamless integration for CI? I mean I’d like GitHub -> AppVeyor -> SC communicate workload and its configuration without the need of secrets passing through. The requirement to specify secrets in CI is usually a blocker for public GH projects and PR analysis.

Example: CodeCov
