Install a Plugin

There are two options to install a plugin into SonarQube:

  • Marketplace - Installs plugins automatically, from the SonarQube UI.
  • Manual Installation - You'll use this method if your SonarQube instance doesn't have access to the Internet.


If you have access to the Internet and you are connected with a SonarQube user having the Global Permission "Administer System", you can go to Administration > Marketplace.

  • Find the plugin you want to install
  • Click on Install and wait for the download to be processed

Once download is complete, a "Restart" button will be available to restart your instance.

See Marketplace for more details on how to configure your SonarQube Server to connect to the Internet.

Manual Installation

In the page dedicated to the plugin you want to install (ex: for Python: SonarPython, click on the "Download" link of the version compatible with your SonarQube version.

Put the downloaded jar in $SONARQUBE_HOME/extensions/plugins, removing any previous versions of the same plugins.

Once done, you will need to restart your SonarQube Server.


If you installed a Commercial Edition, you will need to set the License Key in Administration > Configuration > License Manager before being able to use it.
