How does "" work?


While debugging out .NET code coverage behaving strangely, I just stumbled upon a peculiar project / language parameter:

To my surprise, it is not documented:

It is located in Project Settings:

Can anyone help on this?
How is this different from: sonar.cs.opencover.reportsPaths ?
How does it affect .NET code coverage?

Side note - I know what integration test is :slight_smile:

Kind regards,


In older versions of SonarQube, unit test coverage and integration test coverage were tracked separately and it was necessary to have a sonar.cs.opencover.reportsPaths and a However, in SonarQube 6.2, which was released 7 years ago, these metrics were unified and the test type is no longer stored.

As far as I know, both properties currently serve the same purpose, but I recommend using sonar.cs.opencover.reportsPaths (as it is the recommended property).

To add on to @felipebz’s excellent answer, I’ve pinged the right team about this because after this long… I have no idea why these properties still exist except that maybe we forgot to deprecate them.
