What is a function of Sonar GitHub App?

I’m using Jenkins CI and sonar-scanner and SonarCloud.
I’m not sure I understand if/why I should install Sonar GitHub App.
For now, SonarCloud analyze seems to work without GitHub App.
Into the current docs I found only “GitHub Enterporise integration” topic https://docs.sonarqube.org/latest/instance-administration/github-application/.

If you’re using SonarCloud, make sure you’re checking the SonarCloud docs :slight_smile:

The SonarCloud GitHub application allows you to bind your GitHub organization to your SonarCloud organization.

This makes it…

Hi Colin,

We are using Github actions, we are wondering if we can avoid creating a technical Github user account just for creating the SONAR_TOKEN by using the Sonarcloud Github app.
We don’t want to bind SONAR_TOKENs to personal GitHub users as if they leave the org our pipelines will break.

Hey there.

Today, there are no organization/project level tokens independent of a user. You can vote for this item on our roadmap
