Tried reinstall, but no luck

Hello @Gaby,

Thanks for reporting the problem. A new version with a fix has been released on the Marketplace, could you please give a try ?


Seem to work fine. How do you see a list list of connections though? I need to change the token but it’s not clear how to edit or remove an existing connection setting.

You should open the Bindings view (Show view > SonarLint > SonarLint Bindings). There you will find existing connections, you can right-click on the one you want to edit, then “Edit Connection…”

Ah, cheers! Would be worth updating this page with this info: Connected Mode · SonarSource/sonarlint-eclipse Wiki · GitHub
