Hi Team
we want to migrate our code to sonarqube dashboard, our code contains C/C++ languages, we installed sonarcxx plugin in our sonarqube and try to scan our source code, we are able to see .c files, but unable to display c projects. we are created a Quality profile for C++ and try to scan the code, but same results, is there any solution to display c and c++ projects at a time?

Hello @chaithanyareddyk ,

sonar-cxx is an unofficial plugin that is not supported on this forum. I advise you to ask for help on their dedicated channel.

SonarQube has its own C++ plugin but it’s only available starting with Developer Edition.


Hi @Amelie

we are using sonarqube developer edition, c++ plugin you mean to say “sonarcfamily” or any other c++ plugin, FYI we are using AIX machines, and we are unable to install buildwrapper (buildwrapper wont support aix). is there any possible solution?

Yes, by “c++ plugin” I mean “sonarcfamily”.
Indeed, AIX machines are not supported by our plugin (see C/C++/Objective-C | SonarQube Docs)… And the only solution to analyze your code with our plugin would be to use a supported compiler.
