like these i have around 40 errors showed up in the Scanner logs, and Scanner Execution was successful. BUt non of them were reported in Issues on SonarQube

Not sure why?

Please let me know how to get these errors to be reported on SonarQube Analysis (Issues) report.


Hi, can someone respond on it please.

Thanks in advance

Hi @shiva_sq ,

SonarQube won’t report issues on those files until the parse errors are fixed. Please fix the parse errors and scan the files again.
