Compatibility Matrix

All SCM providers currently require the native executable to be installed on the box. For example, for Subversion projects svn executable must be available.

(tick) - supported
(question) - not tested
(error) - not implemented


This plugin collects SCM information on each source file to display in the source code viewer the last committer on lines.

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 the plugin. This plugin is disabled by default, because it 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




The first analysis of a project with version 1.4 will last longer than the subsequent analyses.

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.
