Sonarlint fails to connect to SonarQube server from Eclipse 2019-03

Eclipse 2019-03 (4.11.0) against SonarQube with SonarLint

Tried in both an existing Eclipse workspace and a completely new workspace and against an existing and new project. It made no difference.


  1. Created a new Java project.
  2. Right clicked on the project and selected the menu SonarLint/Bind to SonarQube or SonarCloud
  3. Selected “sonarqube” from the options and clicked next.
  4. Entered the URL of our SonarQube server
  5. Selected “Token” from the authentication methods and clicked next.
  6. Entered the token from the SonarQube user and clicked next.
  7. Get the error “Fail to request

I can confirm that going to the above URL produces a Json output like below


When I repeat the exact same steps on Eclipse Oxygen.3A (4.7.1a) with the exact same version of SonarLint against the same SonarQube server then it works fine.

Closing this thread due to lack of activity.

To me that could be an SSL configuration issue, but hard to tell without more logs. Feel free to open a new thread if you still have an issue/question.
