SonarQube installed Plugins

I have a .jar file which I want to use as a Plugin. Locally, when running http://localhost:9000 I can simply put the .jar file in extensions folder where my sonarqube files exist.
Is there a way to add a .jar file to a hosted server?? I can’t find the plugin directory in which I can add files to it.
I’ve red something about SONARQUBE_HOME/extensions/plugins directory or something like that, but I can’t find anything.

  • I’m using latest version of SQ
  • I’m trying to add a .jar file to the plugin directory on a hosted server
  • I’ve tried it on a local server and everything worked fine

Hello @mhmd_mshymsh,

That works equally the same than on your local. You should connect to your server filesystem of course (usually this is made with SSH), and from there locate the SQ home, and put the plugin into extensions/plugins.

Sorry for the late reply, I had conferences and travel.
First of all thank you for your fist reply.

I have one last question, it may be easy but I’m new with SonarQube. How can we connect to our server file system??
