Support Gitlab plugin for sonarqube

Hi All,

It looks like the gitlab plugin for sonarqube has been discontinued (, but there are some guys interested on keep supporting it.

What should we do to take ownership?



Hi @David_Marin

With the removal of the preview mode in 7.7, I don’t see how this plugin could work. I you are using SonarCloud or a commercial edition of SonarQube, you can easily have pull request analyzed, but you’ll not be able to see the result in GitLab.

We have frozen any effort on GitLab topic. We got in touch with them a couple of times, and there is no appetite on their side to have a fruitful collaboration. We prefer to concentrate on partners whom we work great with.

Hi @Julien_HENRY,
It is unfortunate, A lot of dev would like to plug Sonar with gitlab Merge Requests support for GitLab

And Gitlab seems to be ready to improve even if sonar support is lagging behind




Hi Ann,

Just installed a clean docker image of version 8.1

I can see the gitlab plugin installed or in the marked place.
Please advice

docker pull sonarqube:8.1-developer-beta
8.1-developer-beta: Pulling from library/sonarqube
Digest: sha256:1f91453ed37dc3015e0ff82878567b761cd6e5011fab1c4b8e3c3eecb33690d3
Status: Image is up to date for sonarqube:8.1-developer-beta
docker run -d --name sonarqube-8.1 -p 9000:9000 sonarqube:8.1-developer-beta


I’m assuming you meant “cannot see the gitlab plugin…” In fact, that plugin isn’t compatible from SonarQube 7.6, up.

My recent response to this thread was to point out that some GitLab integration is now built in (no plugin needed!) in commercial editions starting with 8.0 and improving in 8.1.


Hi Ann,
Thank you for this update and it would be really useful to have this integration. Is this available in the Community version (I’m using the docker image for version 8.2-community)? I can’t seem to find a way to set up my GitLab Account on SonarQube. I would really appreciate your help on how to use this new feature. Thank you.

Hi @kwix,

GitLab is part of the Developer Edition. You can find more information here :


Thanks @julienlancelot for the immediate response. I shall request for a trial and check it out!
