SonarQube 8.9 - Ugrading PostGres 9.6 to 13

Must-share information (formatted with Markdown):

  • which versions are you using (SonarQube, Scanner, Plugin, and any relevant extension) 8.9
  • what are you trying to achieve
    I am on SQ 8.9 and we are in process of upgrading PostGres 9 to 13.

The database has already been setup on the new sever and the data has been imported.
So should I just shutdown existing SQ and then have the config point to the new DB. Is there anything else on SQ side that should be done.

Hey there.

  • If you are using a commercial edition of SonarQube, your Server ID may change (if you’re using a a new database connection string) and you’ll need to get in touch with contact@sonarsource.com
  • Otherwise, keep an eye out for performance and take the advice of this guide, if necessary:

We are on community edition, so I will try to bring SQ with the new DB and see how it goes. Thank you for help,
