You could try our Sonar for Bitbucket cloud add-on: This is best used together with our SonarQube plug-in for Bitbucket cloud which creates pull request comments for found issues:

Hope this helps.

Best regards,


Hi @Michael Rüegg [Mibex Software], thank you for your answer, can you please guide me how Bitbucket can trigger the sonarqube to start analysis when new code is pushed in repo?



Sure. You just need to add the "Bitbucket Server repository triggered" trigger to your build plan and every time you push code to your Bitbucket Server repository, the build plan execution will be triggered automatically.

Can you elaborate on how this can be achieved? How am I supposed to add "Bitbucket Server repository triggered" to my build plan?

Sure! You can do this in the plan configuration under the tab "Triggers" and then click "Add trigger" and "Bitbucket Server repository triggered". Please let me know if this helps.

Thanks. Do I need to have a JIRA instance for enabling the triggers? Or can I do it without JIRA?

Also, can I trigger sonarqube using bitbucket pipelines?

Thanks in advance.

You're very welcome! I was referring to Atlassian Bamboo for enabling the Bitbucket triggers. You don't need JIRA for this. Yes, you can also use Bitbucket pipelines for triggering SonarQube instead of Bamboo.

Thanks Michael. May I know how I can do it using bitbucket pipelines? I would be glad if you could help me with this.

Hi Michael,

Can you please help with the bitbucket pipelines for triggering sonarqube?

Or can you please tell me where do i get sonarHost and sonarProjectKey values to include in sonar.json file as mentioned in this,

Thanks in advance
