Multi Factor Authentication for Datacenter Edition

  • Version: SonarQube 9.2
  • We are trying to implement DUO MFA support for login
  • We are in the research stage.

We wonder if SonarQube On-Premise version supports MFA or 2FA especially via DUO (

Hey there.

If you are delegating authentication to another provider (LDAP, SAML, GitHub, etc.), you should check to see if those authentication provides handle MFA/2FA – that is the layer it would be handled at (not by SonarQube itself).

Hi Colin,

Thanks for the reply, we already have LDAP authentication but MFA needs another step on application end. Here is an example for another system (JIRA),

I’ve checked if such a plugin exists but I could not find.

I can understand that if we use GitHub or Azure, we can have that feature.

Can you or someone else make it clear? Or should I create a support request for further investigation?

Hey again.

  • I have seen one company (through our commercial support offering) manage to do LDAP + MFA without any additional configuration on the SonarQube side. I don’t believe Duo was being used. But theoretically, it is possible.
  • There’s no specific integration to share regarding SonarQube + Duo (or any other MFA service)
  • If you have professional support from SonarSource or Duo, I would definitely encourage raising a ticket.
