Cannot run sonarsource/sonarcloud-github-action@master: java: not found

I’m trying to run SonarCloud scan step using GitHub Actions on a Java project that is built using Ant. The repository is and the current workflow is

Unfortunately no scan is performed because of the following error: /opt/sonar-scanner/bin/sonar-scanner: 59: exec: /opt/hostedtoolcache/Java/8.0.222/x64/bin/java: not found. I tried also different Java versions with no luck.

Details follow:

Am I missing something?

Thank you a lot.

Solved cleaning JAVA_HOME environment variable before execution:

- if: matrix.os == 'ubuntu-latest' && == '12' # To ensure a single execution per CI run
  uses: sonarsource/sonarcloud-github-action@master
    GITHUB_TOKEN: ${{ secrets.GITHUB_TOKEN }}
    SONAR_TOKEN: ${{ secrets.SONAR_TOKEN }}
    JAVA_HOME: '' # Avoid 'java: not found' error

Thank you.


You could also use this action:

I didn’t get why this works. What do we have to clean this up?

The action passes all the environment variables to Docker, including JAVA_HOME. This one, if present, overrides the one wired in the docker image, breaking everything.
