Lingering projects in new database ...?


So I’m very new to SonarQube. Installed and trialled with 8.9 Enterprise. Decided to sign up.

Deleted the old database, re-installed, applied the license. All good.

However, whilst there are no contents within the application itself from previous trials it still states “17 projects” and some data on the left hand side of the /projects page. Is there something else I need to clean down?


Okay, I realise now it’s elastic …

  • stop server
  • delete data/es7
  • start server
