Integrate Sonarqube 8.3 Quality Gate with GitLab

Afternoon ,

Using sonarqube 8.3 and Gitlab 11.10.8-ee with sonar-scanner-msbuild-

Is it possible to have the quality gate feed back the results to Gitlab CI via a flag/option for a msbuild sonar-scanner. As the the non-msbuild sonar-scanner seems to have the ability to fail a pipeline via


There are plugin options out there and of course I can roll my own solution.

But it would be nice if i could use a flag with the msbuild sonar-scanner.



Hi Neil,

According to the docs, you set that flag in your .gitlab-ci.yml file. … Do you not use that same file when analyzing with the SonarScanner for MSBuild?


Lovely stuff Ann, just found a quiet moment to test and it does indeed work by simply setting the following in the begin phase:

Sonarscanner.msbuild.exe begin /k:“xxxxx” /n:“xxxxxx” /d:sonar.qualitygate.wait=true /d:sonar.qualitygate.timeout=180

“INFO: ------------- Check Quality Gate status

Just finding the msbuild documentaion a bit confusing.

Thanks Neil
