SonarQube sends anonymized telemetry data to SonarSource daily. This data helps us understand how SonarQube is used, which helps us improve our products.
The telemetry doesn't collect personal data, such as usernames or email addresses. It doesn't send source code or data such as project name, repository, or author. No IP addresses are sent. The data is sent securely, held under restricted access, and not published outside of SonarSource.
Protecting your privacy is important to us. If you have any concerns about telemetry collection, please email us at
