in the SonarQube 6.7.6 sonar.properties file and restart it, they are not displayed in the Settings menu. There you will find only the default values. However SonarQube is using the settings from the sonar.properties file internally, which can be checked by using the “configuration test” option in the “E-Mail” section of the settings menu.
has there been any change to this described issue? I wasn’t able to make the settings either, SMTP settings are not shown in the GUI (ADMIN) when setting them in /opt/sonarcube/conf/sonar.properties. And I strongly agree with @scm_invn that this is required to achieve proper configuration as code.
I’m running Community Docker image 9.0.1-community where a customized properties file has been copied into the $HOME/conf folder
