Known issues

  • The Java code of SonarQube scanner does not allow connection to an instance if it detects a broken SSL certificate, such as when using self-signed certificates. A workaround is to add your certificate to the Java Keystore. This plugin includes a basic validator for SSL certificate issues.

  • Authorized proxy access is supported in SonarQube versions starting from 6.x due to limitations for proxy handling in old versions of the sonar-scanner-engine-shaded.
