Hard time in getting Sonarqube to view C# unittest

Must-share information (formatted with Markdown):

  • which versions are you using (SonarQube, Scanner, Plugin, and any relevant extension)
Server ID	10173C1E-AW-OunQtiDNiDb7hDFkk
Code Analyzer for C, C++, Objective-C
6.5.0 (build 12506)installed
I currentlty have a 2 week trial edition of the developer edition
  • what are you trying to achieve
I try to see unittest and source files as code in sonarqube and using a static xml generic test execution format file to display the tests. Currently I get no test files under source when I include sonar.tests=testfolder and when I set sonar.tests.inclusions.
Then it dissapear under code.
  • what have you tried so far to achieve this
I created folder named dotnet_test9
In here is a dontnet solution file.
the structure is as follows

./projectfolder\project.project ( dotnet)

The sonarqube output

12:21:51.418 INFO: Project configuration:

with the static UI_TP.xml

  <file path="tests/UnitTest1.cs">

  <file path="UnitTest1.cs">
    <testCase name="TestMethod1" duration="5"/>

sonar scanner commands:

SonarScanner.MSBuild.exe begin /k:"test_csharp" /d:sonar.host.url="" /d:sonar.login="c320e5a096e03bdfb82a4c51fb8728a6b89f097c"

MsBuild.exe /t:Rebuild

SonarScanner.MSBuild.exe end /d:sonar.login="c320e5a096e03bdfb82a4c51fb8728a6b89f097c"

Error I notice:

12:21:55.579 INFO: Imported test execution data for 0 files
12:21:55.580 INFO: Test execution data ignored for 3 unknown files, including:

extra config in sonarqubeanalysis.xml in sonarscanner folder

Any clue? Why it doesnt want to import the generic test report. the xml is checked against the sonarqube documenation listed here:
sonarqube documentation generic test execution

and why I cant see the tests/Unittest1 under code in sonarqube
Also whenever I try to change sonar.exclusions I always get unittest.cs file cant be indexed twice.
Even when I put a configuration inside SonarQube web configuration in analysis scope to exclude or include.

Notice currently I dont have put anything in the analysis scope in SonarQube itself.

When I add the sonar.tests variable for with sonar.tests = tests
Then I get always this

13:25:23.425 ERROR: Error during SonarQube Scanner execution
13:25:23.312 DEBUG:   Test paths: tests

13:25:23.312 INFO:   Included tests: **/tests/**
File tests/UnitTest1.cs can't be indexed twice. Please check that inclusion/exclusion patterns produce disjoint sets for main and test files

But the log tells me

13:27:02.593 DEBUG:   Test paths: tests
13:27:02.594 INFO:   Excluded sources: **/tests/**, **/tests/**
13:27:02.594 INFO:   Included tests: **/tests/**

13:27:02.596 DEBUG: 'tests/UnitTest1.cs' generated metadata as test  with charset 'UTF-8'

that they are correct excluded ?
I suspect the error is telling in the source we analysed the unittest already?
so we cant do it in the tests again, but they are excluded!! ? :stuck_out_tongue: it breaks my mind lol

maybe this could be?

13:30:26.950 INFO: Indexing files of module 'SMT_CORE_UI_TESTS'
13:30:26.950 INFO:   Base dir: C:\dotnet_test9\projectfolder

13:30:26.953 INFO:   Excluded tests: **/source/**

I notice it sees the source paths test/

While in my exclude  I put **/tests/** except ** would be a wildcard to find more not?

nope adding , tests to the sonar.tests didnt solve it either.

removing sonar.tests and all exclusions and inclusions.
I get this:

But now the tests folder files are not listed as tests just as normal source.

When I add back the execution report path and the import unknow files
I get this:

it sounds fair, cause I didnt said sonar.tests = tests folder but whenever I do that I get all these problems above in the topic.

then when i add
I get

plus the tests dissapear now in code folder in sonarqube dashboard
