Scanning C# project using SonarQube on Mac OS

(Manoj Deshpande) #1

I am using below commands which are suggested in the official documentation for analyzing c# or .NET projects and i guess some of the options are deprecated. (/t:Rebuild) . Can you please suggest me current valid commands to scan .sln project or link for the information on updated information regarding usage of the commands.

  • SonarScanner.MSBuild.exe begin /k: "project-key"

  • MSBuild.exe <path to solution.sln> /t:Rebuild

  • SonarScanner.MSBuild.exe end

When I try to use Rebuild option:

MANOJs-MacBook-Air:UI_Testing2 manojdeshpande$ mono /Users/manojdeshpande/Downloads/sonar-scanner-msbuild-4.5.0.1761-net46/MSBuild.SonarQube.Runner.exe /t:Rebuild

WARNING: ------------------------------------------------------------------------

This executable is deprecated and may be removed in next major version of the SonarScanner for MSBuild. Please use 'SonarScanner.MSBuild.exe' instead.

The full path to a settings file can also be supplied. If it is not supplied, the exe will attempt to locate a default settings file in the same directory as the SonarQube Scanner for MSBuild.

I get some other error with authentication problems. Any work around this.

Hi,

In the first example, it looks as if the begin step was not actually executed. Are you sure you did run it first, and that you were in the correct directory? (You should be in the same directory for all 3 commands.)

In the second example, it looks as if the token is not valid. Are you sure it’s valid? As a sanity check, I recommend to create a new token and try again with that.

Cheers,
Janos

Hi.

In the first example you executed the command MSBuild.SonarQube.Runner.exe /t:Rebuild. Note that it says MSBuild.SonarQube.Runner.exe but should be msbuild.exe.

And in the second example your command line shows /d:sonar.login="token1". I don’t know if you changed the token on purpose in the example, but it looks like that you are passing the name of the token, not the token itself. It should be something like /d:sonar.login=aed81568da1a6ccba3271983864f742be5bec017 (with a real token generated by SonarQube).
