Any help is greatly appreciated.


First, your version is past EOL. You should upgrade to either the latest version or the current LTS at your earliest convenience. Your upgrade path is:

7.9.* → 8.9.2 → 9.1 (last step optional)

You may find the Upgrade Guide and the LTS-to-LTS Upgrade Notes helpful. If you have questions about upgrading, feel free to open a new thread for that here.

Regarding your actual question, SonarQube doesn’t calculate coverage, it merely reflects the contents of your coverage reports. So this is really a question for the maintainers of your coverage engine.
