Modifying the technical-debt-related parameters

On this page

You can modify in the SonarQube UI at the global level some parameters related to the maintainability metrics provided you have the Administer system permission. Alternatively, you can set the corresponding sonar property on the CI/CD host (see Analysis parameters).

Changing the software development cost calculation

The development cost of one line of code is used in the Technical debt ratio calculation. To change the default value:

  1. In the top navigation bar of SonarQube, select Administration > Configuration > General settings > Technical Debt.
  2. In Development cost, change the values (in minutes).

The corresponding sonar property is sonar.technicalDebt.developmentCost.

Changing the maintainability rating grid

To change the default Maintainability rating grid:

  1. In the top navigation bar of SonarQube, select Administration > Configuration > General settings > Technical Debt.
  2. In Maintainability rating grid, change the rating definition.

The corresponding sonar property is sonar.technicalDebt.ratingGrid.
