To fully take advantage of SonarQube in Eclipse, it is recommended that your project is already being analyzed on a regular basis by SonarQube. Indeed, you'll get features such as only displaying new issues that you have introduced.

However, if you want to give SonarQube in Eclipse a quick try, you just have to first declare your project through the SonarQube web interface.

Setting SonarQube Servers

Go to Window > Preferences > SonarQube > Servers.

SonarQube in Eclipse is pre-configured to access a local SonarQube server listening on http://localhost:9000/. You can edit this server, delete it or add a new one.

Linking a Project to One Analyzed on a SonarQube Server

Linking for the first time

Once the SonarQube server is defined, the next step is to link your Eclipse project with a project defined on this SonarQube server.

To do so, right-click on the project in the Project Explorer, and then Configure > Associate with SonarQube...:

In the SonarQube project text field, start typing the name of the project and select it in the list box:

Click on Finish. Your project is now associated to one analyzed on your SonarQube server.

Automatic association for Maven projects

Note that for Maven projects, the association is performed automatically.

Changing linkage

At any time, it is possible to change the project association.

To do so, right-click on the project in the Project Explorer, and then SonarQube > Change project association...:

Unlinking a Project

To do so, right-click on the project in the Project Explorer, and then SonarQube > Remove SonarQube Nature:


Advanced Configuration

Severity of SonarQube Markers

You can set the severity of SonarQube markers and SonarQube markers for new violations by going to Window > Preferences > SonarQube.


You are now all set with configuration and you can start using SonarQube in Eclipse.
