SEI SonarQube integration

SonarQube is an open-source platform for continuous inspection of code quality to perform automatic reviews with static analysis of code to detect bugs, code smells, and security vulnerabilities on 20+ programming languages.

Use the SEI SonarQube integration to integrate SEI with SonarQube or SonarCloud.


To use the SEI SonarQube integration you need a SonarQube API Token.

  • The user creating the token must have Administer System permissions.
    • To configure permissions in SonarQube, go to Administration, then Security, and then Global Permissions.
    • Due to the scope of access required, consider using a managed service account, rather than a personal user account, to create the token.
  • For instructions on creating API tokens, go to the SonarQube documentation on Generating and using tokens.
  • Copy the key somewhere that you can retrieve it when you configure the integration.

Configure the integration

  1. In your Harness Project, go to the SEI Module, and select Account.

  2. Select Integrations under Data Settings.

  3. Select Available Integrations, locate the SonarQube integration, and select Install.

  4. Configure and save the integration.

    • URL: Enter the URL of the server where SonarQube is running. For SonarCloud, enter
    • Username: The email address of the user that created the token in SonarQube.
    • API Key: Enter the SonarQube API token.
    • Organization: Enter your SonarQube Organization Name. For SonarCloud, you can find your organization name under My Account. Note that Organization Key is different from the Organization Name.
    • Project Keys: Enter one or more project keys to ingest. If you want SEI to ingest all projects, leave this field empty. Project keys are case sensitive.
    • Name: Enter a name for the integration.
    • Description and Tags are optional.

To integrate with the on-premises SonarQube instances, you must use an Ingestion Satellite.
