Integrate with MSBuild option in Azure Devops Release pipeline

Must-share information (formatted with Markdown):

  • latest versions of sonarqube hosted on local vm
  • Build and run unit tests on local vm to get sonarqube analyses and code coverage. Running on deployment agent instead of build agent as the unit tests still rely on a DB.
  • I have the Prepare analyses step before the Visual Studio build and VSTest steps in the release pipeline. Two artifacts are included, _Artifact1 and _Artifact2
    When I try to use Integrate with MSBuild option it complains
Unhandled Exception:

seems to be related to sonar.sources because when I choose “use standalone scanner” and fill in the root directory param it works (though it fails with a different error related to typescript version)
Also my project is mixed .Net (C#) and Angular.

The code that is compiled is in _Artifact1, _Artifact2 is the compiled tests and DB scripts.

Thanks and regards
