Description / Features

The Issues Report plugin provides the ability to run local SonarQube analyses. The main use case is for a developer to check his/her code before pushing it to the SCM.

It generates an HTML report that displays a list of issues that can be filtered by severity, new issues only, etc.

It supports all languages.

Here's an example of HTML report that you can download:

Sonar Eclipse Plugin

Note that to perform local analyses, a SonarQube Eclipse plugin is also available. It currently supports Java, C/C++ and Python.


  1. Install the plugin through the Update Center or download it into the SONARQUBE_HOME/extensions/plugins directory
  2. Restart the SonarQube server


Note that you do not need to install any local SonarQube server and database.

Just run a SonarQube analysis on your project with your favorite analyzer (SonarQube RunnerMaven or Ant). To run the analysis locally (without making the results available on the remote SonarQube server), just set the sonar.dryRun property to true and make sure that the is properly set to match your remote SonarQube server.

To get a local report:

  • To generate an HTML report, set the sonar.issuesReport.html.enable property to true
  • To set the location of the HTML report, set the sonar.issuesReport.html.location property: absolute or relative path to the SonarQube working directory; default is .sonar/issues-report.html for the SonarQube Runner and Ant, target/sonar/issues-report.html for Maven.
  • To display a short report in the console, set the sonar.issuesReport.console.enable property to true:

A useful feature is to limit the scope of the analysis to the files that have been created or modified. To do so, the sonar.inclusions property can be set.

In the following example, SonarQube will only check the myCobolProgram.cbl Cobol program and ignore the other programs of the application. The analysis will be local: nothing will be pushed to the database, thus the results will not be available through the SonarQube server web interface. An HTML report will be generated to display the list of issues on the myCobolProgram.cbl file:
