SonarQube Review

Simple to use but the plugins are not well documented

What is our primary use case?

We use this solution in the development of our travel programs.

How has it helped my organization?

We use this program as a compliment to our security scans, in addition to Checkmarx.

What is most valuable?

The most valuable function is its usability. It uses a simple approach.

What needs improvement?

This solution finds issues that are similar to what is found by Checkmarx, and it would be nice if the overlap could be eliminated.

The plugins are not well documented.

For how long have I used the solution?

Several years.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

This is a stable solution.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

We do not have any problems with scalability.

We have approximately fifteen developers using this solution, on the Java site.

How are customer service and technical support?

We have not needed to use the technical support.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

We did not use another solution, prior to this one.

How was the initial setup?

The setup is not complex. There are some issues during setup with the plugins because they are not well documented.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

Some of the plugins that were previously free are not free now.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We are looking for how we can integrate several products. We are using static code analysis, we are looking into runtime code analysis, and of course, we have a web application firewall. The problem with all of these tools is that you need a lot of maintenance, and you have a lot of false positives. So, we have tried to find the best solution.

What other advice do I have?

I would suggest trying the product. I like its useability because it has a simple approach.

We use this solution in conjunction with Jenkins, and we have a two-week deployment cycle.

I would rate this solution a seven out of ten.
