A Gradle plugin to specify quality gates/profiles on a project and verify gates were passed.

This Gradle plugin will use the SonarQube API to verify the state of a given project’s quality gate(s).

This plugin requires that you also apply and configure the SonarQube plugin and have SonarQube server version 5.6+ and <7.0.

If the project does not already exist within SonarQube, it will be created.


// build.gradle
buildscript {
  dependencies {
    classpath "org.sonarsource.scanner.gradle:sonarqube-gradle-plugin:2.2.1"
    classpath "com.usaa.plugin.gradle:sonarqube-quality-gates:1.0"
apply plugin: 'org.sonarqube'
apply plugin: 'sonarqube-quality-gates'

Gradle Tasks

SonarQube Utility tasks
applyQualityGate - Applies SonarQube quality gate to project
applyQualityProfile - Applies SonarQube quality profile to project
verifySonarqubeQualityGates - Verifies no quality gate errors exist for project

Ex) ./gradlew applyQualityGate applyQualityProfile sonarqube verifySonarqubeQualityGates will execute the entire workflow, including the sonar scan.

Optional Configuration:

Any of the following options are available. You can override one or all as required.

sonarqubeQualityGate {
  sleep '1000' // the amount of time to sleep between api calls while scan is queued. Time is in milliseconds. Default: 1000
  maxWait '1800000' // the amount of time to wait for scan to complete before failing. Time is in milliseconds. Default: 1800000 (30min)
  gate 'Sonar way' // override default gate
  profile 'Sonar way' // override default profile
  username ''
  password ''
  apiKey ''

Default Settings
