Hey there.

Let me suggest you pass sonar.verbose=true and check the logs on such a pull request build (where no files are showing as changed). You are looking for logs starting around here:

07:27:39.608 INFO: SCM collecting changed files in the branch

Out of curiousity, what kind of files are these? Java files? another language? Source files? Test files?

There is a lot of stuff that has is “excluded by the scm ignore settings.” I dont have any scm ignore settings configured that I know of unless that means the .gitignore file? Other than that I don’t know what to look for.

It’s all Java. For the java.binaries I gave it the folder with all of the .class files for the libraries I gave it the area where the third party libraries are (.jar). The identified source folders contain .java files and some .jsp.
