Self provisioning of Sonar Quality Gates and Quality Profiles without Global Admin permission


(Vaibhav) #1

I am using Sonarqube 7.2. I am able to create Sonar Quality Gates and Profiles using Global Admin. But I want users who have only project admin permission to create their Quality Gates and Profiles(self provision). Right now users with project admin permission can add existing Quality Gates and Profiles to projects, but they can’t create new Quality Gates and Profiles themselves. In case of large enterprise, don’t want Global Admin to spend time on creating complex profiles eg (profiles 500 issues)

Is there a way/solution to do this?

Hi,

We’ve made no provision for this because we feel you should have as few Quality Gates and Profiles in an organization as possible. Ideally, you’d have only one that everyone used. You certainly shouldn’t, in our collective opinion, have profiles and gates that are specific to individual projects. Because if you do, then what should be an apples-to-apples comparison (“Does it pass the Quality Gate?” “Is the Security rating an A”) becomes an apples-to-avocados comparison.
