How to migrate all user from old sonar 8.x to new one 9.x

Make sure to tell us:

  • What version are you upgrading from → I have two sonar one is 8.6 and the second I am going to launch fresh version 9.X.
  • System information (Operating system, Java version, Database provider/version) → Os-> Linux
    DB-> PG
  • What’s the issue you’re facing? → I just wanted to migrate all old sonar users to the new one so just wanted to know all possible procedures for this.


The way to migrate your users is to migrate your instance. Instead of starting 9.9 from scratch, upgrade your 8.6 instance, first to 8.9.10, and then to 9.9.1.
