Coverage does not show from CI tool but works from local machine

  • Versions:
    * Sonar: 7.9.1
    * Scanner: sonar-scanner-msbuild-

  • What are you trying to achieve
    * Get code coverage result of my project in Sonar server from Gitlab CI tool


  • On execution of the below script from Gitlab (CI Tool), the coverage is not reflected in Sonar Server. When the same script is ran from a local machine we can see the coverage in the server.


  • The coverage file and supporting artifacts ‘AppCoverageReport.html’ is placed in the root directory of the project (to ensure we dont get into coverage tool issues).


  • SonarScanner.MSBuild.exe begin /k:“ProjectName” /“SonarServerURL” /d:sonar.login=“AccessToken” /d:sonar.cs.dotcover.reportsPaths=“AppCoverageReport.html”
  • MsBuild
  • SonarScanner.MSBuild.exe end /d:sonar.login="<REDACTED>"


  • Cloning the repository on local machine and running the above commands works and we can see the coverage result in sonar qube
  • Logs for local as well as Gitlab with ‘/d:sonar.verbose=true’ are attached


  • Project path is hidden in the CI runner
  • Additional dot in the coverage report path \full\path.\AppCoverageReport\src\998.html
  • But the file is scanned as if ifle was not present we see the command to throw an error

hi @parth.jha , welcome to the community and sorry for the delay.

do the two reports E:\gitlab\builds\QLSkqsAp\0\cadp\todelete_ui_repo\.sonarqube\out\.sonar\report-task.txt and C:\Users\FIRSTNAME.LASTNAME\Desktop\Repository\todelete_ui_repo\.sonarqube\out\.sonar\report-task.txt have the same contents (locally and remote)?

Do you have access to the server logs? Does it have any warning when being called from gitlab as opposed from the local box?
