Azure Devops: The 'files' list in config file 'tsconfig.json' is empty after updating to sonarqube 8.9 LTS


  • SonarScanner for MSBuild 5.2.1
  • Run Code Analysis Task 4.20.0
  • Sonarqube 8.9


On the azure task we get:
[error]ERROR: The ‘files’ list in config file ‘tsconfig.json’ is empty.
ERROR: The ‘files’ list in config file ‘tsconfig.json’ is empty.
INFO: 0 source files to be analyzed

steps to reproduce

On a project where you have no ts files at all, run the code analysis task

The task seems to continue, but we keep getting this error.

Hi @mlop3s,

It looks like you’ve run into a known issue which our language analyzer team is working on.

ok. I think we can live with this issue and will wait for the fix. Thanks for the feedback.
ps: No logs needed then right?
