Usage & Installation

  1. Install from Update Center or download the JAR into the directory /extensions/plugins/
  2. Restart Sonar
  3. Define the SCM URL of your project (see SCM URL Format).
    Example for Maven pom.xml :

    Or you can use Project Setting - SCM URL.
    Or specify it via property sonar.scm.url.

  4. Go to Global/Project Settings
    1. Enable plugin. This plugin disabled by default, because can dramatically increase analysis time of your project
    2. Specify User (sonar.scm.user.secured) and Password (sonar.scm.password.secured) if needed; if specified then developerConnection will be used, otherwise connection
  5. Launch a new quality analysis and the metrics will be fed

Known problems and limitations

Subversion "Server certificate verification failed: issuer is not trusted"

Add following to .subversion/servers:

CVS anonymous access not working "org.apache.maven.scm.ScmException: password is required."

Try to set empty password for repository in .cvspass. For example :

I use Git and the annotated sources sometimes display a wrong/old author name

The plugin uses 'git blame' command to find out the author of each line. Because a user can commit with different author name/email, it is advised to have a .mailmap file at the root of the repository. This file is used by 'git blame' to find out canonical name/email of each user.
