The Update Center is the place for keeping the SonarQubeTM platform up to date. It allows to:
- List already installed plugins
- Check and install plugin updates
- List available plugins and install new ones
- Check SonarQubeTM platform updates
To take effect, most actions taken in the Update Center (updating a plugin...) will require the SonarQubeTM server to be restarted. The Update Center is only accessible to System Administrators: Settings > System > Update Center.
This tab displays the list of installed plugins and the list of system plugins. System plugins are the ones that are built in SonarQubeTM core. They cannot be updated nor uninstalled. Non-system plugins can be uninstalled by clicking on the Uninstall button:
This tab displays available plugins for your SonarQubeTM version. They are grouped by category such as 'Additional Languages', 'Visualization/Reporting', etc. and can be installed by a simple click on 'Install':
This tab shows new versions of installed plugins. When an update is available, it can be installed by a simple click on 'Upgrade to...':
This tab shows new versions available for SonarQubeTM and steps of migration in terms of plugin updates (plugins need to be upgraded, uninstalled, etc.) to the new version of SonarQubeTM. Installation of the new SonarQubeTM version is manual.
When taking an action in the update center (installing, updating or uninstalling a plugin), a yellow area appears on each tab. The area contains pending operations that will be executed when restarting the server. Pending operations can be canceled until the server is restarted:
