Azure Build Pipeline failing with Sonar Cloud Configuration

Template for a good new topic, formatted with Markdown:

  • ALM used - Azure DevOps
  • CI system used - Azure DevOps
  • Scanner command used when applicable (private details masked)
  • Languages of the repository - English
  • Only if the SonarCloud project is public, the URL
    • And if you need help with pull request decoration, then the URL to the PR too
  • Error observed (wrap logs/code around with triple quotes ``` for proper formatting)

“”" ##[error]11:05:12.787 Failed to request and parse ‘’: Response status code does not indicate success: 403 ().
##[error]Unhandled Exception:

##[error]System.Net.Http.HttpRequestException: Response status code does not indicate success: 403 ().


  • Steps to reproduce

    • task: SonarCloudPrepare@1
      displayName: Prepare analysis on SonarCloud
      enabled: true
      SonarCloud: ‘Sonarcloud endpoint name’
      organization: devopsorgname
      scannerMode: MSBuild
      projectKey: projectkey
      projectName: projectname
  • Potential workaround

Do not share screenshots of logs – share the text itself (bonus points for being well-formatted)!

Hey there.

Have you made sure that the Service Connection for SonarCloud configured on your Azure DevOps has a valid token with access to this organization?
