Must-share information (formatted with Markdown):
which versions are you using (SonarQube, Scanner, Plugin, and any relevant extension)
INFO: Scanner configuration file: /opt/sonarqube/sonar-scanner/conf/sonar-scanner.properties
INFO: Project root configuration file: AProjectName/sonar-project.properties
INFO: SonarScanner 22.214.171.12406
INFO: Java 17.0.7 Eclipse Adoptium (64-bit)
INFO: Linux 6.2.0-34-generic amd64
how is SonarQube deployed: zip, Docker, Helm
On premises server, GitLab integration
what are you trying to achieve
Define a baseline for main branch that future merge/pull requests are compared to
what have you tried so far to achieve this
Added sonar-scanner job to gitlab pipeline and defined project sources and exclusions for unit test folders.
Merged the changes to mainline, SonarQube indicated success but I noticed that also said there was no code in the project
Added inclusions for all source code filename suffixes in a new merge request.
That merge request fails quality gate because all of the code in the project is considered to be ‘new’ even though the merge request only affects the files .gitlab-ci.yml and sonar-project.properties.
I can force the merge even though Quality gate fails but I wan the state of the main branch when that merge is incorporated to be the baseline.
The ‘working’ properties:
sonar.projectName=AProjectName sonar.projectKey=AProjectKey sonar.qualitygate.wait=true sonar.sources=dir1/,dir2/,dir3/ sonar.inclusions=**/*.H, **/*.C, **/*.h, **/*.cpp, **/*.hpp, **/*.vue, **/*.htm*, **/*.ts, **/*.js,**/*.xml,**/*.sh,**/*.php,**/*.py,**/*.rs sonar.exclusions=**/UnitTests/**/*, **/unit_tests/*,**/submodules/* sonar.tests=common/,dir1/,dir2/,dir3/ sonar.test.inclusions=**/UnitTests/**/*,**/unit_tests/* sonar.cfamily.variants.names=dir2,dir3
Without the sonar.inclusions exhaustive list the scanner claimed that there was no source code to scan and I missed that prior to the merge
NB, I have a feeling that the combination of sonar.inclusions and sonar.exclusions means that I can’t exclude code files because the inclusions overrides the exclusions
