The IntelliJ Marketplace has nearly all previous versions available including a compatibility matrix on their marketplace. 

If you don't have access to your the IntelliJ Marketplace and are having troubles, please create a post on the Community to let the team help you find a solution.


To install SonarLint for IntelliJ offline, you must first download the plugin zip file from the JetBrains Marketplace. On occasion, an ad-hoc version can be built mainly for debugging purposes when a user reports a bug on our community forum.

To install the zip, go to File > Settings > Plugins. Behind the gear wheel at the right, select Plugin from Disk and choose the appropriate zip file to start the installation.
