Description / Features

The report contains:

  • Violations by categories
  • Hotspots:
    • Most violated rules
    • Most violated files
    • Most complex classes
    • Most duplicated files
  • Dashboard, violations and hotspots for all child modules (if they exists)

You can download an example report here.


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


This plugin can be used as a Maven plugin (installation in SonarQube not required) or as a SonarQube plugin.

SonarQube Plugin (recommended)

SonarQube PDF can be used as a plugin of SonarQube modeling a post-job work. In this way, a PDF report is generated after each analysis in SonarQube (mvn sonar:sonar includes the generation of the report).


You can skip report generation or select report type (executive or workbook) globally or at the project level. You can also provide an username/password if your project is secured by SonarQube user management:
