How to use my own tsconfig.json in Bitbucket pipeline? error waiting for container: unexpected EOF?

I am trying to use bitbucket pipeline to run sonar scan
Here is the partial build file:

      - step: &build-test-sonarcloud
              name: analyze on SonarCloud
              #- ************************** # See
              - sonar
              - echo "analyze on sonarcloud"
              - pipe: sonarsource/sonarcloud-scan:1.1.0
                  SONAR_SCANNER_OPTS: "-Xmx2048m"
      - step: &check-quality-gate-sonarcloud
              name: Check the Quality Gate on SonarCloud
              - pipe: sonarsource/sonarcloud-quality-gate:0.1.3
                  DEBUG: "true"

and I got the following error message and the pipeline failed

INFO: 30/30 source files have been analyzed

INFO: Sensor JavaScript analysis [javascript] (done) | time=3406ms

INFO: Sensor TypeScript analysis [javascript]

INFO: Found 1 tsconfig.json file(s): [/opt/atlassian/pipelines/agent/build/tsconfig.json]

time="2020-07-15T10:26:53Z" level=error msg="error waiting for container: unexpected EOF"

I also tried to run my local machine using sonar-scanner

export SONAR_SCANNER_HOME=$HOME/.sonar/sonar-scanner-$SONAR_SCANNER_VERSION-linux
curl --create-dirs -sSLo $HOME/.sonar/$
unzip -o $HOME/.sonar/ -d $HOME/.sonar/
export SONAR_SCANNER_OPTS="-server"

and the scan completes successfully…

Here is my question:

  1. When I run locally, it is using
    INFO: Analyzing 1029 files using tsconfig: /home/ec2-user/sonarcloud/test-project/tsconfig.json and it doesn’t give error not find the Could I modify so the bitbucket pipeline uses my tsconfig.json?

  2. Looks like the sonar scanner from bitbucket pipeline sonarsource/sonarcloud-scan:1.1.0 is not the latest version? because I don’t see “TypeScript 3.9.3 which is not officially supported;” when I run locally.

Hi @void

You can add the following property : sonar.typescript.tsconfigPath with the path to your config file

@void it seems that container on bitbucket pipelne is running out of memory. Can you allocate more memory to the container? You can also configure sonar.javascript.node.maxspace property which sets in MB size of the heap for the analyzer, ie sonar.javascript.node.maxspace=4096 for 4GB.

For TypeScript version, can you check which version of TypeScript (tsc -v) you have when you analyze locally? It should be also printed in the logs of the analysis. Analyzer engine is downloaded during the analysis from SonarCloud so you have the latest analyzer in both cases, I suspect that it’s actually version of TypeScript which differs between local. However, this warning is not so important (it can make some rules behave differently in edge cases, but shouldn’t impact overall analysis).

Just for reference, memory issue is similar to the one reported here Memory leak on typescript with multiple projects (3)

thank you for your guidance.

thank you. This helps a lot as well. I will give it a try.
