I want to upgrade SonarQube which is running on docker from version 6.7.1 to 7.9.6LTS version. Can I upgrade it directly or is it intermediate upgrade required?
Welcome to SonarSource Community
Yes, you can upgrade directly to 7.9.6 and then upgrade to 8.9.1 LTS. See Upgrade the Server | SonarQube Docs.
Note that 7.9.6 is no longer LTS.
Hi Joe, Thanks for your reply. Currently we have deployed sonarqube on docker container, Below is the docker-compose file we are using. SonaQube GUI at the bottom shows as Version 6.7.1 (build 35068) - [LGPL v3], Although we are using developer license. To me it looks like it is community Edition configured with developer license. If I need to upgrade this to 7.9.6LTS sonarqube image, Will I have to first upgrade it to image:“sonarqube:6.7.7-community” and then upgrade to image: “sonarqube:7.9.6-community” or can I directly upgrade to “sonarqube:7.9.6-community” image.

Please read this link: Upgrade the Server | SonarQube Docs
It tells you that you can skip the patch versions so yes you can go straight to 7.9.6.
You should then upgrade from 7.9.6 to 8.9.1 LTS. We just released 8.9.1 LTS.
Hi Joe, thank you for our response. I started sonarqube container with image- sonarqube:7.9.6-community but I don’t see “License Manager” tab under Administration->Configuration. We already have a container running with image- sonarqube:6.7.1 and have configured for developer edition, how can I upgrade from 6.7.1 to 7.9.6 version on docker with developer edition.
Hi @Sangeeta_Kjit55tyuhi ,
Please reference the documentation here: Upgrade the Server: Upgrading from Docker Image (scroll down to that section).
