SonarLint for Visual Studio v6.7

This release enables JavaScript & TypeScript users to experience the full end-to-end benefits of connecting SonarLint for Visual Studio 2019 and 2022 to SonarCloud and SonarQube, aligning projects and teams to a single standard of Clean Code.


When binding a project to SonarCloud or SonarQube, SonarLint will automatically synchronize rules and analysis settings to:


  • Use the same quality profile locally
  • Sync any file or directory inclusions/exclusions
  • Mute any issues already flagged as Won’t Fix or False Positive


Discover the full benefits of Connected Mode

SonarLint for Visual Studio v6.6

This release enables the synchronization of file exclusions from SonarCloud and SonarQube to SonarLint for C and C++ users.


File or directory inclusions/exclusions configured for your project in SonarQube or SonarCloud are now synchronized to SonarLint, ensuring your analysis is focused upon the desired source code.


Using Connected Mode, third-party code or source files generated by a tool can selectively be removed from analysis within the Visual Studio IDE.

SonarLint for Visual Studio v6.4

This release adds support for detecting and preventing Cloud “secrets” (user or system-level information such as API tokens, keys, usernames, and passwords) in Visual Studio. 


SonarLint provides a set of rules to automatically detect authentication credentials in source code or language-agnostic files (e.g. xml, yaml, json) within AWSGoogle Cloud, Microsoft Azure Cloud, IBM Cloud, Alibaba Cloud. It then flags an alert to prevent the confidential information from publicly leaking, as well as clear contextual guidance on how best to avoid this issue in the future.


Read this blog to learn why protecting cloud credentials is critical and how SonarLint secures your code. Check out our release notes and learn more in this community announcement.
