Description / Features
This plugin collects SCM blame information and displays the date of the commit and the commiter ID to the left of each line of code:
This plugin also enables the computation of:
This plugin is enabled by default for all projects. The SCM Activity plugin can be disabled on a project-by-project basis, or disabled globally at Settings > General Settings > SCM Activity and then enabled on a project-by-project basis.
All SCM providers currently require the native executable to be installed on the server where the SonarQube analysis will run. For example, for projects hosted on a Subversion repository and analysed on a Jenkins server, an svn executable must be available on the Jenkins server (and its slaves if any).
Subversion (1.6+ client)
- tested by users
- not tested
- not implemented
- Install the plugin through the Update Center or download it into the SONARQUBE_HOME/extensions/plugins directory
- Restart the SonarQube server
Configuring the SCM Activity Plugin: SVN, Git and Mercurial
Information are automatically retrieved from the .git, .svn, etc. folders. Therefore, nothing has to be configured and no configuration will be taken into account.
Configuring the SCM Activity Plugin: SCM other than SVN, Git and Mercurial
At the project level, go to Configuration > Settings > SCM Activity
Set the SCM URL of your project (see SCM URL Format).
- Specify the User and Password properties if needed. If the SCM URL property contains the user information (as with CVS), then these fields should be left blank.
- Launch a new quality analysis and the metrics will be computed.
Forcing the Retrieval of Blame Information
Subversion "Server certificate verification failed: issuer is not trusted"
Add the following to
CVS anonymous access not working "org.apache.maven.scm.ScmException: password is required."
Try setting an empty password for the repository in
.cvspass. For example:
I use Git and the annotated sources sometimes display a wrong/old author name
The plugin uses the '
git blame' command to get the author of each line. Because a single user can commit with multiple author names/emails, it is advised to have a
.mailmap file at the root of the repository. This file is used by '
git blame' to determine the canonical name/email of each user.
I use Git and the annotated sources sometimes display "Not Committed Yet"
If you have set the parameter
autocrlf to "
true" or "
input", and the source file was previously committed with Windows line endings, then git blame will report each line as "Not Committed Yet" as an indication that the file will be normalized to Unix line endings in case you do a modification and a commit on the same file.
The simplest workaround is to always set autocrlf to "false" on the box doing the SonarQube analysis.
Specific configuration for Jazz RTC
Additional configuration for Perforce
Since version 1.6, you have to set an additional property to define the Perforce client name while running your analysis:
