How to download sonar scanner from the sonarqube server that is hosted


similar to this step is there a way I can pull the scanner from the sonar server that we have running locally? like what url would i use of my sonarqube server fqdn is We want to get the scanner from the instance we have.

mkdir /downloads/sonarqube -p
cd /downloads/sonarqube
mv sonar-scanner- /opt/sonar-scanner


This makes a lot of sense to me, but unfortunately, it’s not available. Why? Well, it’s never been prioritized because it would make the SonarQube zips huge (there are, E.G. multiple builds for the CLI scanner) and there hasn’t been a huge demand.

Would you mind fleshing out your need / use case a little further so we can help the Product Managers understand?
