External Analysis for excluded files

Hi, i currently have trouble with including the results of external analysis tools (gcc).
I have converted the warnings to sonarclouds general issue data. This works fine.
However, the gcc also has warnings for files, which i do not want to add to the analysis of sonarcloud as they are third party.
SonarCloud seems to reject the external analysis results with the message:
External issues ignored for 3 unknown files, including: /__w/1/s/modules/3rdParty/…

Is there any way to still include the findings of either all files (even the ones excluded by sonarcloud) or to only include findings matching files that are analysed by sonarcloud?

Hey there.

I’m a little confused by your post.

These two statements appear to be contradictory:

What you’ve described below is the default (only) behavior:

And this warning message indicates that an external issue report was read successfully, and issues reported on third-party files (that aren’t analyzed by SonarCloud) are ignored.

So I think I’m missing something :confused:

Hi Colin,

you are absolutely right. I read the error message wrong.
I did not find the other issues reported by gcc in sonarcloud (as i was blind apparently) and thought it meant “ignored the whole external issues file because some files are unknown”…

SonarCloud does behave the way it should. This Post can be deleted.

Best regards,
