    Build step ‘Quality Gates Sonarqube Plugin’ marked build as failure


Template for a good bug report, formatted with Markdown:

  • Versions used ( Sonarqube - 9.0.0 , Jenkins - 2.289.3)
  • Error observed (Please see above for error)

This isn’t happening on with Jenkins version 2.165 and Sonarqube version 7.6

Please help

Hey there.

This looks to be coming from the Sonar Quality Gates Jenkins extension which was never officially supported by SonarSource. It looks to only support old versions of SonarQube (and is no longer maintained).

I would instead recommend that you use the SonarScanner for Jenkins which includes ways to break the build on Quality Gate failure.

The linked documentation doesn’t describe how to FAIL the build on a Quality Gate failure outside of using Jenkins Pipelines… but maybe I’m missing something. Can you elaborate on how to fail the build without switching over to a Pipeline?

Hi @varun.mudapaka @Colin , I am facing same issue once sonar version upgraded to 8.9.6. Could you please send solution if already find it. Thanks in advance


you may use the properties
sonar.qualitygate.timeout default = 300sec / 5min

as generic way to fail your build if Quality Gate failure.
This feature has been introduced with Sonarqube 8.9
It’s the other way around, not waiting for the webhook with json payload from Sonarqube server containing the Quality Gate result but polling instead.

see documentation
