Hi @Sumeet_Panjabi

you should check these links:


Hey @Carine_Bayon , I was trying to upgrade with 8.9 LTS version and got following ERROR in logs -
detekt plugin requires sonarqube 9.1
How do I ignore this plugin? I have not provided information about this anywhere

Hi @Carine_Bayon any update on this?

hi @Sumeet_Panjabi

It looks like Detekt plugin is a community plugin for Kotlin analysis; not developed or supported by Sonar directly.
Now that Kotlin is analysed directly in SonarQube, you may not need it.
I let you check directly on the plugin page the version of SonarQube they are compatible with (it might be 9.1+).
