Description / Features

This plugin is used to exclude some violations in a fine-grained way. It allows to define some exclusion patterns to switch off violations:

  • By rule
  • By file
  • By line or range of lines


  1. Install the Switch Off Violations plugin through the Update Center or download it into the SONAR_HOME/extensions/plugins directory
  2. Restart the Sonar server


The configuration of the plugin is done in the Web admin console, where you can specify the exclusion patterns in the textarea (one per line):

  • Comments start with #
  • Blank lines are allowed
  • A line defines 3 fields: resource key, rule key and range of lines.


# suppress all violations

# exclude the Java file;*;*

# exclude a Java package*;*;*

# exclude a specific rule

# exclude a specific rule on a specific file;;*

# exclude on specific lines 10, 25 and 90;*;[10,25,90]

# exclude on a range of lines;*;[10-90]

# exclude on many ranges of lines;*;[10-90,92,98,120-150]

Known Limitation

When specifying exclusions patterns in the Web admin console, you may be surprised to see that several lines are displayed on a single line after saving your modifications. This is a known issue which doesn't affect the property you have set but only the way it is displayed when your property does not exceed 50 characters. If you want to see the line returns, then just add a long comment at the beginning (e.g. "# This is a comment blablabla"), and after you saved, you will see your property correctly formatted.
