What testing can be done to verify successful migration of SonarCube to private cloud

As part of QA methodology , If I need to test migration of SonarCube from server to private cloud.

What all tests can be executed?

any experience?

thanks for your reply in advance.


Welcome to the community!

Did your database migrate, or just where your SonarQube instance lives? SonarQube data lives in the database, so if that didn’t move, there’s not much to test with regard to that.

Really, this should be pretty much like an upgrade:

  • explode the zip in the proper place
  • copy configuration data from $OLD_SONARQUBE_HOME/conf/sonar.properties to $NEW_SONARQUBE_HOME/conf/sonar.properties
  • install the correct versions of any 3rd-party plugins
  • shut down the old version
  • spin up the new version
  • enjoy
