Managing your project as a developer

On this page

This page explains various procedures you can perform on your project without being a project admin.

Connecting your project to SonarLint

SonarLint is a free IDE extension that integrates with SonarCloud using Connected Mode. This way, SonarLint can catch issues immediately, right in the IDE, before you even commit them.

Check the SonarLint documentation for the details about setting up Connected Mode:

Generating a token for your project analysis

  2. In the menu, select go to My account > Security.
  3. In Generate Tokens, enter your token name and select Generate Token.

  2. In the left sidebar, select Information.
  3. In the Notifications section, select the checkbox corresponding to the kind of notification you want to subscribe to:

    • Issues resolved as false positive or accepted: Issues have been marked as False Positive or Accepted in an analysis of the project.
    • New issues are assigned to me: New issues have been assigned to me.
    • My new issues: New issues introduced by my code have been raised.
