Will the Server ID change if I move SonarQube to a new host/instance?


(Alain O'Dea) #1

I’m running SonarQube Enterprise 7.3 on an AWS EC2 instance with a Postgres database in Amazon RDS.

I would like to upgrade the underlying OS. Our typical approach is to deploy a new EC2 instance or container, deploy the new version of the app, and then cut over. I’m concerned this will break our license as it is based on the Server ID.

Will the Server ID change if I move SonarQube to a new host/instance?

Greetings!

The part of your Server ID relevant to licensing is based on your JDBC URL, rather than your host as in some past versions. Don’t change your JDBC URL? You’re good to go.

Of course, it’s always good to practice on a test instance first.

@ColinHMueller thank you for the quick reply! That’s what I was hoping :slight_smile:
