Automatically associate new Sonar project with custom quality profile and quality gate

Our use case for Sonar creates new Sonar projects for each branch of our repository. How do we automatically associate the new branch project with a (non-default) Quality Profile and Quality Gate?

We're running this in a Maven project if that's relevant.


We had the same issue, within our company, and the only solution was to use the deprecated attribute sonar.profile (https://docs.sonarqube.org/display/SONAR/Analysis+Parameters).

Sidenote: Generally there is also a interesting view on how to analyze branches. The general recommendation from sonarSource suggests to only use preview modes for short living branches. As a fact bitbucket-plugins with a richer featureset than just commenting issues, sadly need branch based analysis.

https://jira.sonarsource.com/browse/SONAR-5370 - the property will be removed in 4.5.1 based on the sonar task


Use the api/projects/create web service to provision your projects. You can then call api/qualityprofiles/add_project to assign your new project to the proper profiles. (You'll need to have first looked up the profile id's tho with api/qualityprofiles/search.)
