SonarLint integration with IID

We are trying to install sonarlint plugin with IID IBM Integration designer, version 8.5.7, installation fails and IBM support team suggested to raise RFE. Attached document has the steps follow and errors resulted when installing the plugin. Please consider this for enhancement.



See: https://jsw.ibm.com/browse/DBACLD-46801

To support Sonarlint in IID, we have a dependency on RAD supporting Eclipse 4.8.

The version of RAD we have now has Eclipse 4.7.3

    private. We have a newer version of IID, 20.0.0.1. That has a much newer version of RAD/eclpise and can support more plugins. Is there is reason you aren't using the newer IID?
