A SonarQube plugin to send notifications to a Slack channel.

Plugin Build & Installation

Build the plugin with mvn clean package. The resulting jar file (in the target directory) must be copied to the SONAR_HOME/extensions/plugins folder and SonarQube must be restarted. (SONAR_HOME on OSX and Linux is likely /opt/sonar)

Tested for sonarqube 5.6

The plugin requires Java 1.8

Plugin Configuration

After you have restarted SonarQube, you can configure the Slack plugin settings either globally or for a project. If you set a global configuration, the settings will become the defaults for all projects. You can override the global settings in each project.

The Slack plugin settings can be configured on the Administration page.

Enabled - When set to false, Slack notifications will not be sent.

Slack Channel - The #channel or @user to which the Slack notification will be sent. Channel names must be prefixed with # and user names must be prefixed with @.

Slack Handle - The handle from which the Slack notifications will be sent. Defaults to SonarQube. But get creative :-)

Slack Hook - The Slack webhook used to send notifications. For more info, please take a look @

Notification Message - The template for the Slack notification. The following variables will be replaced by their values in your message:

While the plugin currently works just fine, it is built using classes and methods that have been deprecated in the 5.6 version of the API. This will need updating . . .
