Check = Coding Rule.


Batch that runs source code analyzers to compute snapshots.

See Architecture Overview.
Coding Rule

A good coding practice. Violating coding rules leads to quality flows.

Coding rules can check quality on files, unit tests or packages.

See Viewing Unit Tests > Violations Tab

Web page that provides a way to display any data stored in the Sonar Concepts.

A dashboard is a set of widgets.

See Dashboards.



See Architecture Overview.
FilterTODOSee Filters.

A property of a Sonar Concepts. Examples: number of lines of code, complexity, etc.

A metric may be either:

  • qualitative: gives a quality indication on the Sonar Concepts (ex: density of duplicated lines, line coverage by unit tests, etc.)
  • or quantitative: does not give a quality indication on the Sonar Concepts (ex: number of lines of code, complexity, etc.)

The value of the metric for a given Sonar Concepts is called Sonar Concepts.

See detailed documentation on metrics.

The value of a Sonar Concepts for a given Sonar Concepts at a given time.


  • 125 lines of code on class myClass
  • Density of duplicated lines of 30.5% on project myProject
Quality Profile

A set of coding rules.

Each Sonar Concepts is based on a single quality profile.

See Quality Profile.
ResourceA piece of software. Examples: project, package, module, file, etc. 
Server Web Server that is used to navigate the snapshots and make configurationSee Architecture Overview .

A set of measures and violations on a given Sonar Concepts at a given time.

A snapshot is generated for each Sonar analysis.


When a Sonar Concepts does not comply with a coding rule, Sonar logs a violation into the Sonar Concepts.

A violation can be logged on a file or on a unit test or on a package.


It is a box that displays data on a Sonar Concepts.

There are two types of widget:

  • Global widget that can displays data from multiple projects. So far there is only one global widget available: filter.
  • Project widget that only displays data from a specific project
  • No labels
