I am using the AzureDevOps SonarQube plugin in a Build. The plug in adds 2 tasks to the build process.
The first is “Prepare the SonarQube Analysis” , and that works.
The second task is “Complete the SonarQube Analysis” That step is failing with the following:
2020-03-23T19:18:07.4223876Z INFO: Total time: 6.954s **2020-03-23T19:18:07.6519972Z ##[error]ERROR: Error during SonarQube Scanner execution** **2020-03-23T19:18:07.6526741Z ##[error]ERROR: Language of file 'DAL_DB2.vb' can not be decided as the file matches patterns of both sonar.lang.patterns.vb : **/*.vb,**/*.bas,**/*.frm,**/*.ctl,**/*.vb,**/*.bas,**/*.frm,**/*.ctl and sonar.lang.patterns.vbnet : **/*.vb** **2020-03-23T19:18:07.6527146Z ##[error]ERROR:** **2020-03-23T19:18:07.6527392Z ##[error]ERROR: Re-run SonarQube Scanner using the -X switch to enable full debug logging.**
I asked a coworker who has a lot more experience with SonarQube and he said that they had a similar issue and they used:
Apparently we are on an older version of SonarQube that still supports sonar.language.
Version 6.7.5 (build 38563)
So I guess I could try his suggestion, but in other articles I have found that property is being deprecated. What would be my alternative.
At this point I am also asking the Development teams if anyone is still writing and apps in VB6. If they are not I can remove the VB6 scanner and issue should go away.
