SonarQube 6.2 support for Oracle 19c

Can anyone point out if the SonarQube version 6.2 will be compatible with an Oracle 19c database ? I checked around and couldn’t find the compatibility matrix for version 6.2 as it is pretty old and has been archived. The sonar properties file only mentions support for 11g and 12c which suggests that 19c may not be supported but would be good get it confirmed from the community.
To give some context , we already have an existing sever that is running SonarQube version 6.2 backed by a Oracle 12c database using ojdbc6 driver and we are planning to migrate to a new server keeping the sonar version the same. However we are planning on upgrading the database to 19c , hence the question.


Welcome to the community!

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

6.2 → 6.7.7 → 7.9.6 → 8.9.8 → 9.4 (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.

Referencing the archived docs for 6.7, it seems that Oracle 12C is supported. With 7.9, Oracle 19C is supported. So it looks like you’ll need to interleave your upgrades:

  • SQ 6.2 → 6.7
  • SQ 6.7 → 7.9
  • Oracle upgrade
  • SQ 7.9 → 8.9

HTH & good luck!
