Sonar Community Highlights, November 11 - 17

Hey everyone!

It’s been another busy week in the Sonar Community! Like every week we want to spend some time saying thanks to everyone who prompted interesting discussions and gave us feedback on Sonar products that will help us continuously improve.


  • @bdellegrazie raised an interesting point about the Helm chart install process for SonarQube, inquiring about the possibility of using a ConfigMap instead of a Secret for caCerts. We’ll add this possibility with SONAR-21053! Thanks!

  • A big shoutout to @jenspopp for raising a question about rule key validation in SonarQube. A bug ticket has been created to align things between the API and rule templates. SONAR-21052

  • Hats off to @awsmman for reporting an integration issue with SonarQube in an Android project. This is related to a known issue (and there is a workaround reported in the thread). A permanent fix will come with SONARJAVA-4697.

  • There was an update (just today) to the Azure DevOps extension for SonarQube that caused some issues reported by @bper19 and @GamIstAr. Thanks for the reports – we’ve issued some patch releases already.

  • Thanks to @Tsuesun for seeking clarification on the use of SONAR_WEB_JAVAOPTS versus SONAR_WEB_JVM_OPTS in SonarQube’s Helm chart. This query highlighted confusion in the documentation regarding deprecated environment variables. We are going to update the documentation.


Rule Improvements:

Once more, we extend our thanks to everyone mentioned here - and those we may have missed - for their efforts in strengthening this community and enhancing our Sonar products.

Please leave your own recognitions below – whether for another community member or a SonarSourcer who assisted you this week. If there’s someone you think should be acknowledged in next week’s roundup, don’t hesitate to let us know.

Colin, Ann and Leith
