SonarLint for Eclipse only supports SonarQube Plugin API 8.5


after upgrading our custom plugin to 8.9 and deploying it to our SonarQube server I am receiving notifications that SonarLint does not support our plugin. I upgraded SonarLint to 5.9, the notification still appears. In the log file I found the following message:

Starting SonarLint for Eclipse
Starting SonarLint engine for connection 'host'...
Load plugins
Plugin 'My Custom Plugin' requires plugin API while SonarLint supports only up to 8.5. Skip loading it.

Version used:

SonarQube: 8.9 LTS

Hi Oliver,

This will be fixed in the next release of SonarLint for Eclipse. This is the related ticket in our common library:
As a solution, if you know your plugin works fine with older versions of the Sonar Plugin API, you can build with 8.9, but force the compatibility with an older version, like:

Hi @Julien_HENRY

Thanks for the link. Didn’t realise that there is a core library for SonarLint and that the issue would be tracked there.
