How to stop an Azure Pipeline when SonarQube Analisys finds errors

I need to stop an Azure DevOps pipeline when the SonarQube “Code Analysis” fails to meet certain criteria or metrics.

So far I configured the pipeline so the following stage depends on the previous job, however, since the SonarQube Analysis succeeds (if it finds duplicated code/code smells/etc, it won’t stop, just report it), the pipeline just continues, thus, the stage is successful.

Here is part of the yml file and we are using SonarQube Developer EditionVersion 8.9.2 (build 46101).

- stage: Sonarqube
  - job: analysis
    displayName: "Sources analysis"
      - task: SonarQubePrepare@5
        displayName: Preparing Sonar
          SonarQube: $(serviceConnection)
          scannerMode: 'CLI'
          configMode: 'manual'
          cliProjectKey: $(Build.Repository.Name)
          cliProjectName: $(Build.Repository.Name)
          cliSources: '.'
      - task: SonarQubeAnalyze@5
        displayName: analysis
      - task: SonarQubePublish@5 
- stage: RunTests
  dependsOn: analysis


I think there must be a way to ask if the SonarQube analysis found any code smells or something of the sort and after that, make the condition based on that.

Edit: I found a couple of extensions that allows to “break” the pipeline based on certain policies that can be configured within the yml file. I’m still looking for a “native” way to configure this.
