SonarLint for Eclipse v9.1
SonarLint for Eclipse v9.1 introduces additional benefits for teams working in connected mode to SonarQube.
With SonarQube v10.3, you can now open any issue you’re investigating in SonarQube directly into the IDE, with just a click of a button, thanks to connected mode. This allows you to leverage SonarLint’s dataflow navigation, rule descriptions, and quick fixes for efficient issue investigation and resolution.
Connected mode for Eclipse delivers shared code quality expectations, deeper issue analysis, smart notifications, and additional language analysis opportunities. Learn more here.
- Support for Python 3.12 syntax, and 4 new rules related to Python 3.12 features.
- We added 9 Java rules for Spring Boot.

SonarLint for Eclipse v9.0
SonarLint for Eclipse v9.0 introduces additional team benefits when using SonarLint in connected mode to SonarCloud and SonarQube.
Now, with SonarQube v10.2 onwards, you can mark a new issue as Won’t Fix or False Positive without waiting for SonarQube to analyze your branch or pull request. Once SonarLint detects a new issue in your code and you decide not to fix it, you can use SonarLint to change the issue status. The updated status will automatically propagate to SonarQube and to any other contributor using SonarLint in connected mode.
Plus, when using connected mode to SonarCloud, any issue or security hotspot status change made in SonarCloud will be instantly synchronized to your IDE, ensuring you can focus on relevant issues.
- 6 Java rules dedicated to the Spring framework
- 5 Python rules for the Pandas library
Lastly, this version raised the SonarLint required minimum Java runtime version to 17. See here for more details.

SonarLint for Eclipse v8.1
SonarLint for Eclipse v8.1 introduces a new feature supporting the Sonar Clean as You Code methodology. Plus, we have extra rules to detect secrets directly in the IDE and new Python rules for Data Scientists.
SonarLint is pairing up with SonarQube and SonarCloud to deliver the “Focus on new code” feature. Enabled this empowers you to focus only on issues in your new code (i.e., code that has been added or changed according to your new code definition.)
In addition, we have incorporated 42 new rules to detect secrets (API tokens, passwords) within your Cloud applications. This enables the immediate detection of secrets in your code when you add or copy/paste them, before you commit or push the code into a repository. This proactive approach boosts confidence in your code and minimizes exposure.
This latest addition brings the total to 100 different types of secrets spanning 60 cloud providers.

SonarLint for Eclipse v8.0
With SonarLint for Eclipse v8.0 we introduce the adoption of Clean Code attributes to categorize issues, plus enhanced secret pattern detection.
Firstly, we have made various product changes in alignment with our Clean Code vision. For each issue raised in your code, SonarLint will report the Clean Code attribute and software qualities impacted.
In addition, and leveraging a new Sonar open-source secret detection engine, this version delivers a powerful approach to identifying potential security vulnerabilities related to secrets (tokens, passwords, API keys). SonarLint can now detect secrets for an additional 22 popular cloud applications and providers.

This newly assigned status will then automatically sync to SonarQube or SonarCloud, as well as all other contributors using SonarLint in connected mode.
