Hello Team,

Next week we are planning to upgrade sonarqube from 8.6.1 to 8.9.6, and for that we need to download the checkstyle and groovy plugin.

as per this URL:
github URL to download plugin is not working, whenever i try to download it says 404.
downloading v9.2.1

same for groovy plugin.
downloading v1.8

Please advise.


Hi @lalitkhatri12

The community plugin for Groovy is available here: GitHub - Inform-Software/sonar-groovy: SonarQube plugin for Groovy and should work with SonarQube 8.9 (and 8.6)

For Checkstyle, you have the plugin available here : GitHub - checkstyle/sonar-checkstyle: Support on Checkstyle in SonarQube. Officially transfered from
And you can see that 9.2.1 version will not be compatible with your 8.6, but only 8.9 version of SQ.

See more here : Compatibility matrix

Does that help?
