Description / Features

The Sonar Crowd Plugin enables the delegation of Sonar authentication to an external system. The plugin currently supports Atlassian Crowd.

Only password-checking is done against the external system. Authorization (access control) is still fully managed in Sonar. That’s why Crowd users do not automatically have access to Sonar. A Sonar account must be created first for each new user wishing to use Sonar. The Sonar administrator should also assign the user to the desired groups in order to grant him necessary rights. If exists, the password in the Sonar account will be ignored as the external system password will override it.

Usage & Installation

  1. Place the jar into the /extensions/plugins directory
  2. Place crowd-ehcache.xml and into the /conf directory
  3. Make sure that at least one user with global administration role exists in Sonar as well as in the external system
  4. Configure by adding and editing the following:
  5. Restart the Sonar server and check the log file for:
    INFO  org.sonar.INFO  Authentication plugin: class com.teklabs.sonar.plugins.crowd.CrowdAuthenticator
    INFO  org.sonar.INFO  Authentication plugin started
  6. Log in to Sonar
