Hey there.

Are you able to run a gradle build?

I want to integrate sonarqube with gitlab for android without installing android-sdk on gitlab is it possible?

You’ll need to be able to complete a successful build, so installing the SDK for your project is probably a prerequisite for that. That’s why I asked:

I am not able to build gradle as I have not installed android-sdk on gitlab as it consumes a large space. with sonarqube I want to scan my java files of android only so is it possible that I can use sonarqube for that on gitlab without installing android sdk?


As I wanted to scan only java files of android project using sonarqube so can we do this without installing android-sdk in gitlab?

Hey there.

Your SonarQube analysis relies on a successful build. You will need to be able to build your code in Gitlab, which implies having the android-sdk installed.
