Coverage reporting stopped working for multiple projects on CI

We have Sonarcloud setup with our CI (CircleCI) to report coverage for two TypeScript-based projects. At some point in mid August the coverage numbers stopped showing up in Sonarcloud and while debugging it I found that the coverage is showing up in Sonarcloud if I run the scanner command locally (Mac OS). It also works if I download the LCOV file that is generated by CI and use it in the local scanner call. However, if the Scanner is running on CI (Linux) it does not work.

At the time the coverage reporting stopped working we didn’t change anything related to how we generate coverage or run the scanner during the time. In addition this is happening for two different projects that worked perfectly for over a year. Before starting the investigation we were using Sonarscanner 4.5.0.2216, but the same is happening with 4.6.2.2472.

I’m adding the command we use to run the Scanner and the output of the Scanner at the end of this post. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hi @florian_ec , thank you for your patience. Your problem might be related to this other thread. I see in your sonnar-scanner command you are using the correct coverage parameter but, could you check that in your CI you are not using the deprecated sonar.typescript.lcov.reportPaths and instead the sonar.javascript.lcov.reportPaths?

You can read more in our documentation.

Please, let us know if this is helpful for you or if you would need anything else!

Best regards,
Antonio

Thanks for the response, @Antonio_Garcia

Yes, we are using sonar.javascript.lcov.reportPaths also on CI. This deprecation was the first thing I noticed when starting to debug this. Is there anything else that could cause this?

@Antonio_Garcia Do you have any other ideas what we can try to fix this?

I was trying again to fix this issue and looked into a couple of things. I tried replacing the relative path in the lcov.info file with absolute paths, but I get the same result: 0% code coverage.

I don’t know if this helps, but the DEBUG logs don’t show any errors or warnings or the JS/TS coverage:
