Hey there.

SonarLint Connected Mode brings extra value to your SonarLint installation, and also can only interface with certain versions of SonarQube (otherwise we’ll be keeping compatibility with old, EOL versions… forever).

And with that said, your version of SonarQube is way past EOL. You should upgrade to either the latest version or the current LTS at your earliest convenience. Your upgrade path is:

7.4 → 7.9.6 → 8.9.8 → 9.4 (last step optional)

You may find the Upgrade Guide and the LTS-to-LTS Upgrade Notes helpful. If you have questions about upgrading, feel free to open a new thread for that here.
