Private message function


I’m quite new to Sonar community but I’ve spent some time browsing various posts in the community and found out a lot of Sonarqube staff uses PM when they help developers to solve problems.
However, I’m not sure how I can use that feature. I saw the post that we need to create 5 new topics then we may be able to use the message feature. Could you confirm if I understand it correctly?
I also wonder how long it will take for me to get permission after I created 5 new topics as well.

Thank you so much.


Could you explain why you want to create PMs?



I want to download the latest build-wrapper version but the Enterprise Sonarqube is 8.9.6.
I found that the issue that I’m facing with using wrapper is coming from the following issue.

Is there any way that I can get the latest version of build-wrapper and run it with this Enterprise version of Sonarqube?

Would it be impossible to run the latest wrapper in the Enterprise Sonarqube 8.9.6?
If it is possible, I thought it would be great to receive the wrapper through PM.


You should upgrade your SonarQube instance. 8.9.6 is past EOL. Your upgrade path is

8.9.6 → 9.1 → 10.0 (last step optional)


Thank you for your reply.
Unfortunately, I’m using the Enterprise version and my corporate doesn’t want to upgrade for now. I need to have another solution.


The build wrapper evolves along with the products. I have no idea whether the latest build wrapper would work with your unsupported version of SonarQube.

You need to persuade the admins.
