Sending or importing preexisting jacoco xml report to sonarcube

Must-share information (formatted with Markdown):

  • which versions are you using (SonarQube, Scanner, Plugin, and any relevant extension)

    • Currently testing the logic Locally using Community Edition Version 9.6.1 (build 59531)
  • what are you trying to achieve

    • We have NodeJs based integration tests ( run in circleCI) that calls java app on remote server.
    • We have installed jacoco agent on the server and are able to generate jacoco.exec and xml report after integration tests are done using jacoco cli.
    • However once the report in xml is created, we are not able to figure out how to send to sonar.
  • what have you tried so far to achieve this

    • Locally I have tried this. My goal is that sonar should just pickup the xml from path Dsonar.coverage.jacoco.xmlReportPaths and send to sonar. However it anaylyzes the project and sends a usage data per that analysis ignoring the supplied xml path
mvn sonar:sonar -f "pom.xml" \
  -Dsonar.login=admin \
  -Dsonar.password=admin1 \
  -Dsonar.projectKey=col6 \
  -Dsonar.coverage.jacoco.xmlReportPaths="/path/to/pre-existing-report/jacoco-report.xml"
