Analyzing multiple solution C# project using sonar-scanner-MSBuild

Hi Team,

I am using the below configuration:

I want to analyze the project which has different C# modules(different .sln file) but while running,

SonarScanner.MSBuild.exe begin /k : "org.sonarqube:sonarqube-scanner-msbuild" /n : "Project Name" /v : "1.0"

MSBuild.exe /t :Rebuild

SonarScanner.MSBuild.exe end

it’s not picking up any modules as i am running above mentioned command from root directory. So how to configure sonar-scanner-msbuild for multiple solution project?
Thanks in advance!

Hi @vicky,

Please provide the logs of the build and scanner end steps.

Hi @Ammo,

Please find the below details:

For this step MSBuild.exe /t :Rebuild

  2. An unsupported version of MSBuild has been used to build the project. Curre

Well as the build step is saying you are not building anything so of course the analysis cannot succeed. Please fix your build step.

Hi @Ammo,

Thanks for your response! While building it is looking for sln file and as i have already mentioned my project has multiple sln file in different modules so that’s why i am trying from root folder. I tried to build each module seperately but that will create seperate project in sonarqube that i don’t want. While exploring i got to know that msbuild-scanner doesn’t support multiple sln files for same project so can you please help?

I have some trouble to follow you… It would be nice to have some example to understand the scenario you are trying to describe.

This is what I got:

|-- /solution1
|---- solution1.sln
|---- /project11
|-------- project11.csproj
|---- /project12
|-------- project12.csproj
|-- /solution2
|---- solution2.sln
|---- /project21
|-------- project21.csproj
|---- /project22
|-------- project22.csproj

And you want to analyze all the solutions onto the same SonarQube project.

If that’s the case then that’s just a classic msbuild way (nothing specific to SonarQube):
1/ SonarScanner.MSBuild.exe begin …
2/ msbuild /t:rebuild ./solution1/solution1.sln
3/ msbuild /t:rebuild ./solution1/solution2.sln
4/ SonarScanner.MSBuild.exe end …

@Ammo Thank you for your response. Yup definitely this will works as we can refer multiple solution while building. Thanks
