How is Developer Edition licensed?
Developer Edition is priced per instance per year and based on your lines of code (LOC).
An instance is an installation of SonarQube. You pay per instance for a maximum number
of LOC to be analyzed. Find your max LOC below to see what it will cost you per year:
How do we count Lines of Code (LOC)?
LOCs are computed by summing up the main/program LOCs of each project analyzed. Lines
of test code are never included in this number. The LOCs used for a project are the
LOCs found during the most recent analysis of this project. If you start using the
branch analysis feature, then the counted LOCs of a project will be the ones of the
biggest branch of that project.
What will happen if my instance is getting close to or reaches the limit of LOCs?
If you are getting close to the threshold you will be notified to either upgrade your
plan or reduce the number of LOCs in your projects. If you reach the limit, your
SonarQube instance will stop accepting new analyses.

Enterprise Edition, and discover how it can help you manage your entire Application Portfolio, while
enabling Code Quality & Security at an Enterprise level.
Do I need to pay now?
No payment is required to request or activate a free trial license. After you request
a free trial, a SonarSource representative will be in contact with you to activate the
trial and discuss options for once your trial is complete.
