Error writing value of type 'org.gradle.api.internal.provider.DefaultMapProperty'

I am trying to execute Gradle sonar task from the command line ./gradlew sonar

  • Using Gradle sonar plugin
  • trying to get an initial report on our Android multi-module project that consists of different flavours that produce different branded apps

Above command will produce the following info logs

./gradlew sonar

Any advice would be appreciated given projects build fine otherwise


Could we get a --info or --debug log?

Because based on your log, it looks like a simple missing file:

org.gradle.api.internal.artifacts.ivyservice.DefaultLenientConfiguration$ArtifactResolveException: Could not resolve all files for configuration ':app:netherlandsDebugCompileClasspath'.

Thank you for reply @ganncamp
The problem seems to originate from a module that is defined and JVM library through Gradle convention plugin
Example of module build.gradle.kts nowinandroid/core/model/build.gradle.kts at main · android/nowinandroid · GitHub

plugins {

dependencies {

where JVM plugin is defined in build-logic module as below nowinandroid/build-logic/convention/src/main/kotlin/JvmLibraryConventionPlugin.kt at main · android/nowinandroid · GitHub

import org.gradle.api.Plugin
import org.gradle.api.Project

class JvmLibraryConventionPlugin : Plugin<Project> {
    override fun apply(target: Project) {
        with(target) {
            with(pluginManager) {


Is the implication here that it’s happening during the ‘extra’ build that analyzing with SonarScanner for Gradle forces? If so, can you try adding -Dsonar.gradle.skipCompile=true on the analysis command line? If not… we still need that analysis log.


OK here are logs

Hello @Peter_Miklosko,

Thanks for reaching out. It is failing because you’re using configuration cache and this is an experimental feature and Sonar task is not completely compatible with this (we’re currently working on it).

Meanwhile, it would be really helpful if you could share this report from logs to help us investigate:

See the complete report at file:///Users/USERNAME/github/legoandroid/build/reports/configuration-cache/9huqx05040tw9kprox32immga/89z3s1y6ouu4kfefefufcco5h/configuration-cache-report.html

Meanwhile, you can disable the cache by using options --configuration-cache-problems=warn or --no-configuration-cache .

sonar.gradle.skipCompile won’t help here, because it’s failing during the configuration stage.


Apology for the delay other work had a higher priority

On a positive note, I updated our project from to and that is no longer giving me errors. So I will close this thread
