end-to-end GitHub CI/CD benefits

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

promote only quality 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 informed and aligned on code quality standards.


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