How to test your plugin on commercial editions of SonarQube

Hi all,

I’m developing a plugin which adds a page to the webapp. Some of the content on the page is comes from the measure of a custom metric. The metric is set during the analysis of a project started with the sonar-scanner. I realised that on the developer edition of SQ the measure will be set for a specific branch given branch-specific analysis. I’m familiar with the API that I should use to retrieve the metric on the page but I have never valorised the branch parameter.

I’d like to actually test this situation on the developer edition of SQ. Ideally a trial license should suffice but I am also aware that you do not provide licenses for personal use due to a company policy. Also I read on here that you do not need a license to test on commercial editions. Hence why I’d like to know what is the simplest way to go about it?

Thanks in advance for the replies.


Welcome to the community!

So, okay. I did say “You don’t need a license to test on commercial editions” but that was specific to that thread’s context, which was testing localization - i.e. web rendering.

In your case, where what you want to test is rendering of a custom metric in a branch context, you will need a license because (also from that thread):

And you’ll need to run analysis to get your metric calculated for the branch.

Unfortunately, I don’t see a good path forward here except to shell out $150 for a Developer Edition license.
