end-to-end CI/CD benefits

With its tight coupling to GitHub, Sonar analyzes your projects and provides code health metrics at the right time and in the right place

Promote only clean builds

With non-disruptive code quality analysis, your project’s Quality Gate status is clearly decorated right in GitHub Checks along with code coverage and duplication metrics. Live updating keeps everyone on the same page.


If you’ve adopted GitHub Actions, Sonar nicely integrates there with autodetection of branches and PRs. Of course, you can also integrate with Jenkins, Azure Pipelines, Bitbucket Pipelines, or any other CI.
