New code definition setup is now part of project onboarding

We have introduced a new mandatory step during project onboarding as part of the Sonar Clean as You Code (CaYC) methodology. Intended to help teams focus on the most relevant issues, now when adding a new project from the SonarCloud UI you will be asked to select a New Code Definition (NCD). The organization's default NCD will be proposed if compatible with the CaYC methodology.

For further information, please refer to this Community announcement.

Deprecation of Java 11 as a runtime environment to scan your projects

Please note that, following the deprecation of Java 11, the support for Java 11 as a runtime environment for the Sonar scanners will end on 31st October 2023. We encourage you to migrate your scan pipelines to at least Java 17 as soon as possible. 

It’s important to clarify that this does not affect the Java version targeted by your project code.  It relates only to the JDK or JRE that is installed and used when running the SonarCloud scanner analysis tool. You can still scan Java 11 projects.

For further information, please refer to the SonarCloud documentation and the Community announcement.
