In order for this to work, the
sonar-project.properties file (or pom.xml for Maven) needs to be located in a checked-out folder, but it does not have to be checked-in.
Alternatively, you can set the "
sonar.projectBaseDir" property to a checked-in folder (requires sonar-runner 2.4 at least), and have the
sonar-project.properties files located anywhere.
