Sonarqube data collection

I want to install the community edition of SonarQube for my company however there are some questions regarding what data is collected (if any) and sent to a SonarQube backend.

If I setup the server does the server send any data up to an external sync? I can’t see any information regarding this in the license so I’m assuming that no data is collected.

If anyone can help with this please let me know.


Welcome to the community!

In fact, SonarQube does phone home to send some anonymized data about the instance. The data bundle consists of things like SQ version, database flavor & version, which DevOps Platforms you’re using, how many lines of code and for which languages. It’s all really meta stuff to help us understand how the product is used.

And you can turn it off in $SONARQUBE-HOME/conf/ using the sonar.telemetry.enable property. It defaults to true. Just set it to false if you want to opt-out.
