Azure Devops SonarCloud Java Pipeline failing

We are including SonarCloud into our organization in Azure Devops. Followed process shown in SonarCloud UI to include steps for code analysis in Classic editor Java pipeline. The pipeline runs fine without sonarcloud code analysis step but fails when we enable it in gradelw step. PFB error message.

Please note as mentioned in SonarCloud website checked “Code Analysis — Run SonarQube or SonarCloud Analysis” in pipeline instead of adding Run Analysis Task in pipeline.

Welcome to the community!

You mentioned you added a gradle step for analysis. How are you building the Java code in your project?


There is not separate step for building java code. Gradlew step is there only. Attaching snaps.



To be clear, the gradlew build step was already there, and the only change you made was to check the “Run SonarQube or SonarCloud Analysis” box?


yes. I also added below sonarcloud tasks also. I followed the process mentioned under maven analysis in sonarcloud.

  1. Prepare analysis on SonarCloud
  2. Publish Quality Gate Result

Hey @dipa5b,

I am not sure I am following: Are you mixing manual Maven and Gradle analysis instructions to integrate with SonarCloud?



Any update on this ?

Hey @jayu7192,
We are waiting for an answer from @dipa5b but if you are facing a similar problem, please open a new thread.



Hi, I am trying to implement the same using Sonarqube enterprise edition. Will share details once I have a clear understanding.
