Sonar Qube Integration with Azure DevOps Pipeline

SonarQube

SonarQube is an open-source platform developed by Sonar Source for continuous inspection of code quality. Sonar does static code analysis, which provides a detailed report of bugs, code smells, vulnerabilities, code duplications. It supports 25+ major programming languages through built-in rulesets and can also be extended with various plugins.

SonarQube Deployment Strategy

Build Pipeline

  • The developer checks in the source code to the Azure code repository.
  • Azure Continuous Integration pipeline triggers the build by cloning the application code from Azure repo to either Microsoft hosted build agent or self-managed build agents.

Run code Analysis

  • This task will actually do the code scan and the analysis. But for this, you need to add your project build task prior to this task in the build pipeline.

Publish Quality Gate Result

  • The last and final step is to publish the result of the scan and quality Gate. This step ensures the result of the code scan is displayed as a summary on the build result page.
  • In this step is not mandatory, even if you don’t add this step you will be able to view the code scan result in Sonarqube dashboard in the Sonarqube server.page.

Sonarqube dashboard

  • Once build pipelines are configured with Sonarqube code scan and executed if you go back to your Sonarqube dashboard you should be able to view the project info that you have scanned Sonar Analysis code quality result.

Why SonarQube in Azure DevOps?

01. Code Quality

SonarQube provides in-depth analysis of code quality, which helps organizations identify and fix code issues before they become bigger problems. This ensures that the code is of high quality and meets the organization’s standards.

02. Automated Code Analysis

By integrating with Azure DevOps, SonarQube enables organizations to automate code analysis. This helps organizations save time and effort that would otherwise be spent on manual code reviews.

03. Continuous Integration and Continuous Deployment(CI/CD)

The integration of SonarQube with Azure DevOps enables organizations to continuously integrate and deploy code. Code analysis results can be used to enforce quality gates, ensuring that only high-quality code is deployed to production.

04. Compliance and Security

SonarQube helps organizations ensure that their code is compliant with industry standards and regulations. It also helps organizations identify and address security vulnerabilities in their code.

05. Improved Developer Productivity

By using SonarQube, developers can quickly identify and fix code issues, which helps them write better code and become more productive.

06. Increased Collaboration

The integration of SonarQube with Azure DevOps enables organizations to collaborate more effectively. Developers can share code analysis results and discuss code issues, leading to better communication and collaboration.

07. Customization and Extendibility

SonarQube provides a rich ecosystem of plugins that can be used to extend its functionality. The integration with Azure DevOps enables organizations to customize SonarQube to meet their specific needs.

Benefits

Sustainability

Reduces complexity, possible vulnerabilities, and code duplications, optimizing the life of applications

Increase Productivity

Reduces the scale, cost of maintenance, and risk of the application; as such, it removes the need to spend more time changing the code.

Quality Code

Code quality control is an inseparable part of the process of software development.

 

Detect Errors

Detects errors in the code and alerts developers to fix them automatically before submitting them for output.

Increase Consistency

Determines where the code criteria are breached and enhances the quality.

Business Scaling

No restriction on the number of projects to be evaluated.

 

Enhance Developer Skills

Regular feedback on quality problems helps developers to improve their coding skills.
