Encryption is mostly used to remove clear passwords from settings (database or SCM credentials for instance). The implemented solution is based on a symetric key algorithm. The keypoint key point is that the secret key is stored in a secured file on disk. This file must only be owned by and readable only by the system account that runs the SonarQube server, the analysis with SonarQube Runner, SonarQube Ant Task, Maven or from the Continuous Integration server.

2. Store the secret key on the SonarQube server

  1. Copy this the generated secret key in to a file:

    Code Block
    titlesonar-secret.txt
    languagenone
    bIOVA1TybepjqLH+uYxuNh==



  2. Store this file on the machine hosting the SonarQube server (default location:  ~/.sonar/sonar-secret.txt). If you want to store it somewhere else, set its path through the sonar.secretKeyPath property in SONARQUBE_HOME/conf/sonar.properties:

    Code Block
    titleSONARQUBE_HOME/conf/sonar.properties
    languagenone
    ...
    sonar.secretKeyPath=C:/path/to/my/secure/location/my_secret_key.txt
    ...



  3. Restrict its access to the system account running the SonarQube server (ownership and read-access only).
  4. Restart your SonarQube server.

...

Go back to Settings > Configuration > General Settings > Encryption and generate the encrypted values or of your settings:

4. Use these encrypted values

...

Batch side

Copy the secret key file on to the machine running the analysis.
