Hey there.

Are you facing this issue with SonarCloud or SonarQube?

Hey Colin,

Sonar cloud

It sounds like SonarCloud isn’t trusted by the truststore of your Java installation.

If this certificate isn’t trusted by the JVM installation on your server (SSLPoke is a great tool for testing this), you’ll need to update the truststore being used by the Java installation that runs your SonarCloud server to trust this certificate.

This sounds like an issue isolated to your Java installation, otherwise we’d have many, many reports of this. I can confirm that SonarCloud’s certificate is valid.
