Table of Contents

Only project administrators can access project settings (See Security).

Adding a Project

Adding a project to Sonar is not done through the web interface, but automatically when the project is analyzed for the first time.

Deleting a Project

You can delete a project in Sonar by clicking on Project Deletion in the left menu.

Note that a service to delete several projects at the same time is available since Sonar 3.2.

Updating Project Key

Since Sonar 3.2, the project key can be updated. Go to Configuration > Update Key:


Setting Quality Profiles

As Sonar 3.3 enables multi-language project analysis, project administrators can select which quality profile to use for each language on their project. Go to Settings > Quality Profiles:

Excluding Files

It is possible to exclude files from being analyzed:

  • Since Sonar 3.3, go to Configuration > Settings > Exclusions and set the 'sonar.exclusions' property.
  • For Sonar versions prior to 3.3, click on Exclusions in the left menu and set the 'sonar.exclusions' property.
Since Sonar 3.3, it is also possible to:
  • Exclude tests file from being analyzed: go to Configuration > Settings > Exclusions and set the 'sonar.tests.exclusions' property
  • Set global exclusions that will apply to all the projects: go to Configuration > General Settings > Exclusions and set the '' and '' properties.


Coding rules


If you want to exclude source code from being check against some coding rules, you can have a look at the Switch Off Violations plugin.

Since Sonar 3.5, it is also possible to:

  • Set the files to be analyzed through the 'sonar.inclusions' and 'sonar.test.inclusions' properties. In this case, only these very files will be analyzed.
  • Exclude some files from being checked against duplications. To do so, set the through 'the sonar.cpd.exclusions' property (Configuration > Settings > Duplications).

To exclude/include files, you can use wildcard patterns. Example: **/* to exclude/include all classes ending with 'Bean'. Full documentation is directly available on the Sonar web interface (Configuration > Settings > Exclusions).

Customizing Links

To add links to your project, click on Links in the left menu:

They are two types of links:

These links have to be defined in the analysis configuration file:

  • Home: sonar.links.homepage
  • Continuous integration:
  • Issue tracker: sonar.links.issue
  • Sources: sonar.links.scm
  • Developer connection: sonar.links.scm_dev

For Maven projects, these links are retrieved from the project POM:

  • Home: <url>
  • Continuous integration: <ciManagement><url>
  • Issue tracker: <issueManagement><url>
  • Sources: <scm><url>
  • Developer connection: <scm><developerConnection>
Setting a sonar.links.* property on a Maven project overrides the one above.
These links can be displayed on a:
  • Filter by adding the Link column
  • Dashboard by adding the Description widget

They can not be modified through the web interface.

Any link can be added trough the web interface.

Those links can be displayed on a dashboard by adding the Description widget.

Configuring Plugins

Several plugins can be configured at project level to override Global Settings for that project. On your project, click on Configuration in the top right corner.
