Manual PR analysis doesn't have GitHub checks posted

Hi there,
I use SonarCloud with a number of repos and one of them doesn’t show a PR check on GitHub. The repos showing it successfully use Gradle integration as per documentation, but the one that’s having troubles is an iOS repo. So this is the only repo explicitly using sonar-scanner to do analysis on our CI.
The analysis is done after all tests are completed and looks like the following:

                  "-Dsonar.scm.revision=$(git log HEAD@{1} -1 -q | head -1 | cut -f 2 -d' ')"


sonar-scanner "${sonar_args[@]}"

After the analysis completes successfully the comment is posted on the repo, but no check.
Both GitHub repo and SonarCloud are private
My looks like this:

Hi @kohtenko, welcome to the community forum.

Which CI do you use to run the build?
Could you please post the logs produced by the SonarScanner during a pull request analysis?


Hi @Claire_Villard ,
We use AzureDevops, but it shouldn’t make a difference as long as we are triggering sonar-scanner manually. I get the same output on my local terminal. The output with a default INFO level is the following:

Please let me know if DEBUG level output is needed


For the example of build without check, the SHA of the decorated commit was 807d98678b2c35d7d90f5d3c1c9e0d124db91cb7. Is it correct, related to the build? Is it the commit you expect the check to be reported to?

The SonarScanner is supposed to detect the analyzed commit SHA directly from the .git directory of the cloned repository. Could you please explain why you had to configure manually the sonar.scm.revision property? A mismatch between the value of that property and the commit on GitHub may explain why the check is missing (or reported to another commit).

Thanks a lot @Claire_Villard , that was it! I didn’t know this property is optional. There’s little to none documentation I could find regarding manual analysis and the properties related. I assumed it was required, because it is on CodeClimate which we just have migrated from. I now see the check!
