Does sonarqube scanner support .NET 8 targeted projects?

We updated our build environment to try out .NET 8.0.0-preview.7.23375.6. Since then the sonarqube scanner fails with this error message in the “end” step (the “begin” and “build” step are executed successfully). Does Sonarqube support .NET 8 targeted projects and does it support builds that were created with MSBuild version 17.8 (Breaking change: Version requirements for .NET 8 SDK - .NET | Microsoft Learn)?

Hello @Christopher_Stephan

I just tried to analyze a class library that targets .NET 8.0.100-rc.1.23455.8 and it works.
Can you share please what type of project you analyze?


Hi Čaba

we are analyzing a .NET MAUI Class Library that targets net8; net8.0-android; net8.0-ios.


Hmm, I did an analysis of a .NET MAUI class library targeting .net 8 and it works for me.

Can you please provide me with the verbose level logs of the build in binary log format?
To get the logs you will need the following parameters: /v:d -bl:build.binlog .
