We are upgrading SonarQube version from 7.4 to 8.9. The current SonarQube instance is live and being utilised by most of the projects on daily basis. Also, we have changed the underlying server from CentOS to RedHat while doing the migration. Also, we are using development edition license which was recently renewed.
We have done the upgradation successfully and now would like to test the upgraded version before making it live. But we are unable to use the same license on latest version.
- Is there a way to test the upgraded setup without license? We just want to see if we are able to scan the results and push them to the UI without any issues.
- Once the testing is successful, how can we migrate the license from older server to new one?
