When did SonarQube started supporting Golang

On my local machine I have SonarQube Version 6.7.7 (build 38951), I do not see Go in all profiles.
In prod we have Version 6.7.5 (build 38563), there is an option of Go in all profiles.
I was under the assumption that Go support for Sonarqube started only in 7.x.
Would you guys please be able to verify when did SonarQube started to support Golang. If there is Go support in 6.x why is it not showing on my local.


Hi @maanasa0318

I wasn’t there at that time, but I think we started “supporting” Go back in 2018 - Releases · SonarSource/sonar-go · GitHub
Which would mean before LTS 7.9 (in the 7.x series).

I saw you are running a SonarQube 6.7 version. This is super super super old version and very far from where we are currently in terms of both quality and security analysis;
I would really recommend you to upgrade/start from scratch (as the differences will be really important) your SonarQube server on a supported version, which means either 8.9 LTS (until February and the release of the new 9.9 LTS) or 9.8 version which is currently the latest one.
