Administrators can access the Marketplace via Administration > Marketplace. The Marketplace is the place for keeping the SonarQube platform up to date. It lets you:
To view/install plugin updates, your SonarQube server needs Internet access. Installations require the platform to be restarted before they take effect.
When taking an action in the Markplace (installing, updating or uninstalling a plugin), a yellow area appears at the top of the page showing pending operations that will be executed once SonarQube is restarted. Pending operations can be canceled until the server is restarted.
Marketplace uses HTTP(S) connections to external servers to provide these services. If SonarQube is located behind a proxy, additional information must be provided in the SONAR_HOME/conf/sonar.properties configuration file:
http.proxyHost=<your.proxy.host> http.proxyPort=<yout.proxy.port> #If proxy authentication is required http.proxyUser=<your.proxy.user> http.proxyPassword=<your.proxy.password>
Note: the same properties can be used in the 'https.' form for HTTPS connections
Restarting SonarQube can be done manually from the command line by running
sonar.sh restart or directly from the UI :
If your server has no access to the internet, then you won't be able to rely on the Marketplace for plugins, and will have to handle plugin installations and upgrades manually.
To know what plugins are available and which version of a plugin is appropriate for your server, use the plugin version matrix, which is kept up to date with plugin availability and compatibility.
To install a plugin, simply download it using the manual download link on the plugin documentation page, place it in [sonarqube-home]/extensions/downloads, and restart the server.
