Dotnet-sonarscanner doesn't support .net 8

Have a docker image that just gives us .NET 8 and dotnet-sonarscanner

FROM AS base

FROM AS build

#Begin Sonar
RUN dotnet tool install --global dotnet-sonarscanner --version 5.3.1

ENV PATH="${PATH}:/root/.dotnet/tools"

In our jenkins file we docker inside and run dotnet sonarscanner build

     dockerImageSonar = docker.image('above-image')

 dockerImageSonar.inside("-v $WORKSPACE:/app -e SONAR_HOST_URL='' -e SONAR_TOKEN=${SONAR_TOKEN} -e BRANCH_NAME=${branch} -e CHANGE_BRANCH=${changeBranch} -e CHANGE_ID=${changeId} -e CHANGE_TARGET=${changeTarget} -u 0:0")
                sh """
                dotnet tool list -g 
                mkdir -p ${fileDirectory}/tests/
                find / -type d -name "StrykerOutput" -exec cp -avr --target-directory=${fileDirectory}/tests/ {} +
                echo 'Sonar PR CHANGE_BRANCH : ${changeBranch}'
                dotnet-sonarscanner begin /k:${applicationName} /d:sonar.pullrequest.branch=${changeBranch} /d:sonar.pullrequest.base=${changeTarget} /d:sonar.login=${SONAR_TOKEN} /d:sonar.cs.opencover.reportsPaths='**/TestResults/coverage.opencover.xml' /d:sonar.coverage.exclusions='**Tests*.cs'  /d:sonar.verbose=true
                dotnet build ${projectPath} -c release
                ls -F
                dotnet-sonarscanner end /d:sonar.login=${SONAR_TOKEN}

however we get the following error

+ dotnet tool list -g

Package Id               Version      Commands

You must install or update .NET to run this application.

App: /root/.dotnet/tools/dotnet-sonarscanner

Architecture: x64

Framework: 'Microsoft.NETCore.App', version '5.0.0' (x64)

.NET location: /usr/share/dotnet

The following frameworks were found:

 8.0.0 at [/usr/share/dotnet/shared/Microsoft.NETCore.App]

If you see from the dotnet tool list command it has dotnet-sonarscanner but it doesn’t seem to be happy with .net 8

This previously worked with .net 6


Why are you running a 2 year-old version?

The issue you’re seeing was fixed in version 5.4 and the most recent release is 5.15.0.

Please use the latest dotnet-sonarscanner release and check if the issue persists.
