Default Admin Credentials

When installing SonarQube, a default user with administration privileges is created automatically:

  • Login: admin
  • Password: admin

The first question that should be answered when setting the security strategy in SonarQube is: Can anonymous users browse the SonarQube instance or authentication must be required? To force user authentication, log in as a System administrator and go to Settings > General Settings > Security and set the sonar.forceAuthentication property to trueTo allow users to sign up online, set the sonar.allowUsersToSignUp property to true.

A user is a set of basic information: login, password, name and email.

To create a new user, go to Setting > Users > Add new user: 

Changing my Password

FAQ

I have lost the admin password

In case you lost the admin password of your SonarQube instance, you can reset it by running executing the following update statement query:

Code Block
update users set crypted_password = '88c991e39bb88b94178123a849606905ebf440f5', salt='6522f3c5007ae910ad690bb1bdbf264a34884c6d' where login = 'admin'

This will reset the password to admin.
