Parameters to configure analysis of project can be set in various places in Sonar. Here is the hierarchy of parameters:
- Global analysis parameters, defined in the UI, will apply to all the projects
- Project analysis parameters, defined in the UI, will override global parameters
- Project analysis parameters, defined in project analysis configuration file or in analyzer configuration file, will override the ones defined in the UI
- Command line parameters, defined when launching an analysis, will override project analysis parameters
|sonar.host.url||Sonar server URL||http://localhost:9000|
JDBC Driver used by Sonar
Prior to Sonar 3.2: org.apache.derby.jdbc.ClientDriver
JDBC Connection URL
Prior to Sonar 3.2: jdbc:derby://localhost:1527/sonar
User for the JDBC Connection
Password for the JDBC Connection
The project key that is unique for each project.
Name of the project that will be displayed on the web interface.
The project version.
Set through <version> when using Maven.
Sets the language of source code. If a Sonar plugin allows to analyze another language, the associated source code analyser can be activated with this property.
Comma-separated paths to directories containing sources.
Description of the project.
Comma-separated paths to directories containing binaries (in case of Java: directories with class files).
Comma-separated paths to directories containing tests.
Comma-separated paths to files with third-party libraries (in case of Java: JAR files). Pattern can be used.
Note that * wildcard character is not supported for directories (only for files).
This property is used by rule engines during issues detection (mainly Sonar and FindBugs engines which rely on bytecode). Having the bytecode of these libraries allows to get more information on coupling, possible null parameters when calling external APIs, etc. and thus getting more accuracy during issues detection.
Encoding of source files. Example of values: UTF-8, MacRoman, Shift_JIS. This property can be replaced by the standard property project.build.sourceEncoding in Maven projects.
The list of available encodings depends on your JVM. See http://docs.oracle.com/javase/1.5.0/docs/guide/intl/encoding.doc.html.
Sometimes, for security or other reasons, project sources must not be stored and displayed.
It becomes quickly necessary to input historical data and to highlight some events. It is possible by going for example in a subversion tag and use the sonar.projectDate option. Format is yyyy-MM-dd, for example 2010-12-25.
Exclude files from analysis. See Project Administration#ExcludingFiles for more details. This page also details sonar.tests.exclusions, sonar.inclusions, sonar.tests.inclusions, sonar.global.exclusions, sonar.global.tests.exclusions.
Some project modules should not be analyzed and consolidated with global project measures, for instance samples, integration tests or generated code.
Comma-separated list of the modules to analyse, all other modules are automatically ignored. Be careful : the root project must be added to the list.
Manage SCM branches. Two branches of the same project are considered as different projects in Sonar.
Through the Sonar web interface, you can define as many quality profiles as you want and you can easily associate one of this quality profile to a given project.
Default profile for the given language
To skip the computation of design metrics and dependencies.
Currently only available for Java.
Run maven phase or goal prior to analysis. When Sonar needs a phase or maven goal to be executed prior to analysis, this parameter can be used. For example sonar.phase=generate-sources. This property is used only for Maven analysis.
Dynamic analysis relates to unit tests. By default, those unit tests are executed but you can optionally decide to do only static analysis or to reuse existing reports which have been previously generated. Possible values are true, false, reuseReports.
See the Code Coverage by Unit Tests tutorial for details and examples.
To set the working directory for the Sonar Runner or the Sonar Ant Task (versions greater than 2.0).
Beware: the specified folder is deleted before running each analysis.
Increasing HTTP timeouts of requests to Sonar server. The Maven plugin executes some HTTP requests to the Sonar server. Two timeouts makes the call fail if the server connection is too slow. In such a case the timeouts can be increased from Maven properties.
respectively 30'000 and 60'000 milliseconds
|sonar.showProfiling||Display logs to know where time is spent||false|
|sonar.showSql||Display all the SQL requests executed on batch side||false|
|sonar.showSqlResults||Display the result of all SQL requests executed on batch side||false|
|sonar.verbose||Activation of the DEBUG mode on batch side||false|
