Versions: SonarQube 9.2, Scanner 4.6
I am trying to set a project’s dev ops platform automatically, either configured on Sonar or when creating the project using the sonar scanner CLI.
I have tried to find a way to set a default devops integration for all projects using the Sonar UI to no avail. I have also tried to find if there is a property that can be used when pushing the analysis, e.g.
Is there any way to achieve this? Or is the only way to configure the devops platform to have an admin manually go into the settings of each project?
I am trying to resolve the
No devops platform configured. To report the Quality Gate status to a devops platform, please configure it in the project administration. error on the project in an automated way.
Hi, to automate ALM project <==> SQ project binding, you can use the API set_gitlab_binding. There are other endpoints available for the other ALMs.
Will take a look at this, shame that it requires you to use Admin scope. Means an external service will need to have Admin rights to a large amount of projects just to link them to the ALM, which isn’t a good feeling.
I wonder, if a project is created by a user/bot, do they then have admin rights to that project? That way it could be automated as part of the Gitlab CI with a much more restricted-scope token.
Thanks for the reply.
Are you talking about admin rights within SonarQube? Because you don’t have to be a global admin to create projects. That’s a separate, specific global permission. And in your permission template you have the ability to grant the project creator - as an individual - admin on the project.
Does that help?

This is exactly what I was hoping would be possible, that way it can be done automatically in the CI/CD. As you don’t need to have an api token with overly permissive permissions.
Thanks for pointing me in the right direction.
