The dump file is not found when I try to import a project

I’m trying to migrate a few projects from a Sonarqube 9.9 Developer edition to our new Sonarqube 9.9 Enterprise edition. Both applications are in the same versión, 9.9(build 65466). The SQ-Dev is installed in a Windows 10 machine and the SQ-Enterprise is installed in a Ubuntu 22.04 Server.

I exported the project using the procedure that is documented in Project move ( As well, I copied the zip file in the ubuntu server in the path /opt/sonarqube/data/governance/project_dumps/import with permission 744.

After that I restarted the app using the command sudo systemctl restart sonarqube.service but the Import & Export UI still showing the same error message: This project can not be imported because the dump file is not found.

Could you help me to identify why we are facing this issue?

Thanks in advance,
Kind regards,

Hey there.

It looks like you’ve changed the name of the zip between the instance. SonarQube relies on the zipfile having the same file name (the project key).

Sometimes I’m ashamed of my questions… sorry, it was super clear but I didn’t see it. Thanks!

No shame! :slight_smile: Happens to all of us. Your detailed report really made it clear how to help, so thank you!
