Sonarqube data migration from community to developer edition

Must-share information (formatted with Markdown):

  • which versions are you using (SonarQube) sonarqube-
  • what are you trying to achieve: we have developer edition and want project old data from community edition.
  • what have you tried so far to achieve this: we have restored SQL backup data from community edition to Developer edition. but data is not reflecting. can you guide me how I can achieve this?

Hey there.

Moving from Community Edition to Developer Edition is as simple as starting up a Developer Edition instance up against your database (or a copy of your database).

If the data isn’t appearing in the UI – I would suggest trashing your Elasticsearch index on your Developer Edition instance (removing /data/es7 and restarting).

Thanks Colin…
“we have deleted index and still not appearing”… here are log files etc.
Please suggest what next steps to be done.

Hey there.

I would expect that this database:


Does not actually contain any of the backed up data, just a fresh schema.

2021.11.17 09:23:24 INFO web[o.s.s.i.i.AsyncIssueIndexingImpl] 0 branch found in need of issue sync.

I would suggest you make sure that the database specified actually has some data in its tables (issues, for example).

Hi again,
I restored backup again with data, however it is not showing projects…access.log (32.1 KB)
