Allow unknown languages in generic test coverage reports

  • ALM used Github
  • CI system used Github Actions
  • Scanner command used when applicable (private details masked)
- name: SonarCloud Scan
      uses: sonarsource/sonarcloud-github-action@master
        args: >
  • Languages of the repository
    Only Rust files are contained in the sonar-coverage.xml file and the sonar-issues.json only contains:
    The sonar-coverage.xml file is formatted such below; occasionally a file with no coverage will have an empty block <file path="src/"></file>:
<coverage version="1"><file path="src/"><lineToCover lineNumber="2" covered="false"/><lineToCover lineNumber="3" covered="false"/><lineToCover lineNumber="6" covered="true"/><lineToCover lineNumber="7" covered="true"/><lineToCover lineNumber="11" covered="false"/><lineToCover lineNumber="12" covered="false"/><lineToCover lineNumber="13" covered="false"/><lineToCover lineNumber="14" covered="false"/><lineToCover lineNumber="22" covered="true"/><lineToCover lineNumber="23" covered="true"/><lineToCover lineNumber="24" covered="true"/></file></coverage>
  • Only if the SonarCloud project is public, the URL
    Not public
  • Error observed (wrap logs/code around with triple quotes ``` for proper formatting)
03:17:46.583 ERROR: Error during SonarScanner execution
03:17:46.583 ERROR: Error during parsing of the generic coverage report '/github/workspace/sonar-coverage.xml'. Look at SonarQube documentation to know the expected XML format.

03:17:46.584 ERROR:

  • Potential workaround:
    I’m thinking maybe I could forcefully change the file extensions to something known, to at least get the results in SonarCloud but just inform people of the hack.

Is there any work being done to get rust whitelisted as a generic test coverage language?

Hey John.

I’ve moved your post to Suggest New Features as today, it’s not possible to import generic coverage data on unknown languages.
