Publish Quality Gate Result error on some builds but the same agent

We use SonarCloud to perform analysis of several projects in one organization. The code and build pipelines are stored in Azure DevOps (dev.azure.com). We use the latest available task versions to integrate with SonarCloud:

  • Prepare Analysis Configuration 1.18.0
  • Run Code Analysis 1.21.0
  • Publish Quality Gate Result 1.10.1

We have an agent hosted within corporate network and use proxy to connect to SonarCloud.

The problem we have is that one of the build analysis succeed but the other with the same task configuration fails to publish quality gate result. The analysis is performed successfully and the gate is calculated in Sonar. Both builds were executed on the same agent, so it’s not agent configuration dependent.

I post below the logs from the successful and failing builds for comparison.

Please help us to understand and diagnose the issue.

Hello @zamojski, looking at the logs and based on your information i would say that could be a networking issue on your side. As you can see lots of API requests failed due to a ETIMEDOUT which is a timed out connection. It is not related to authentication or something else because simple requests like a GET into https://sonarcloud.io/api/server/version should always work (you can test it anywhere if you want). To me the alternate behavior is not something that must be investigated now: you need to know the reason for the failing requests. You can use the above one for debugging this issue, the following command:

curl -i https://sonarcloud.io/api/server/version

Should return (some values maybe change):

HTTP/1.1 200

8.0.0.19558%

Unfortunately we can’t help much with that, since this issue is on your side. I could find a lot of topics by Google “azure devops ETIMEDOUT”, maybe is a good to start.

I hope that helps.

I was initially assuming the same but both builds were executed on the same agent, the same machine, and one right after another.

Moreover in the same build the ‘Prepare analysis on SonarCloud’ succeeds without any issues so there must be something wrong with ‘Publish Quality Gate Result’ task.

I’m able to connect the the server https://sonarcloud.io/api/server/version in web browser as well as with curl once the proxy is configured.

And as you can see the proxy is configured on the agent ##[debug]Agent.ProxyUrl=http://proxy:8082.

Could be a proxy issue: some times it fails. The time out happened when you didn’t configure the proxy, so if there is a problem with it you will get a timed out, the same issue you have in the pipeline.

Do you still have this issue? It is consistent (happens always, sometimes, for a specific pipeline)?

No, it’s not true. It always fails for certain build definition while not for the other. The issue is consistent and behaves always the same for certain pipeline.

Is there any way to check why during the same agent job the version check succeeds at the beginning (prepare) and fails at the end (publish quality gate)?

@Alexandre_Holzhey Any ideas how to debug this or where to seek for the differences in behavior?

The build definition for a failing and a good pipeline is exactly the same? Including environment variables values? Including the environment they are executed? If not, what are the differences?

My assumption is: if one pipeline succeeds and other don’t, probably there is something wrong/different between the pipelines. You should start by investigating these differences.
