Hi All,

2.) How can we retrieve old reports,rules and profiles to the newly upgrade sonarqube version(6.7.5) ?

Hi Naresh,

Each version of SonarQube is likely to perform some upgrades to its database schema. Triggering that manual step is covered in the Upgrade Guide.

If what you’re asking about is compatibility with the underlying database engine, you’d do best to check the Requirements and Upgrade Notes of your target version.
