Hey there.

Most likely you had installed on your SonarQube instance and it somehow became uninstalled, or deactivated.

I would recommend checking whether or not this plugin is installed (and if it is, whether it is still enabled in your global Administration)…

You should also know your version is past EOL. You should upgrade to either the latest version or the current LTS at your earliest convenience. Your upgrade path is:

8.6 → 8.9.9 → 9.6 (last step optional)

You may find the Upgrade Guide and the LTS-to-LTS Upgrade Notes helpful. If you have questions about upgrading, feel free to open a new thread for that here.


Thanks for the reply. We are facing the version compatibility issue while installing the Bitbucket auth plugin, is this because of the June 2020 update or so? This plugin was working earlier and we were able to login through bitbucket creds, however, recently it has broken.

Hi Colin,

Can you please suggest on above asked, what is the workaround to get the compatible plugin.

Hey there.

Please do not bump threads. This is a Community forum, and a Commercial Support Offering exists if you need a guaranteed response, SLAs, etc.

If the Marketplace download isn’t working (and that’s expected – as SonarQube v8.6 is EOL), you can still download the plugin [SonarSource Downloads-CDN) and follow the documentation on installing a plugin into the appropriate directory.
