Description / Features

This plugin connects SonarQube to Redmine issue and project management tool in various ways.

Widget "Redmine Issues"

SonarQube retrieves the number of open issues associated to a project from Redmine. It then reports on the total number of issues and distribution by priority.

Link a SonarQube review to a Redmine Issue

This feature allows you to create a review (on a violation) that will generate a Redmine Issue on your configured Redmine Installation

When logged in, you should find the "Link to Redmine" action available on any violation:

You can enter any comment and after you press "Link to Redmine", a new review comment is added on the violation: you can see the link to the newly-created Redmine issue.

And the corresponding Redmine Issue looks like:




Redmine 2.2+


Redmine 2.0 - 2.1


Redmine 1.x.x
