SONAR CLOUD failed generating report for C sharp code

Template for a good bug report, formatted with Markdown:

  • versions used:- SONAR CLOUD
    *SONAR SCANNER:- 4.4

  • error observed :- SONAR scan was done , report was published to SONAR CLOUD, when we went to check then the code is empty in SONAR CLOUD.

  • steps to reproduce:-
    a) checkout the code from the bitbucket code(code is already compiled):-
    b) run the sonar scanner :- sonar-scanner.bat -X -D"sonar.organization=" -D"sonar.projectKey=" -D"" -D"sonar.login=<>" -D"sonar.sourceEncoding=UTF-8" -D"sonar.sources=C:\SONAR\Scanning" -D""

  • potential workaround:- NA

Hello @chetananand, can you provide us with the SonarScanner log output? I guess you project is public on SonarCloud, right? If yes, can you provide the URL?

I am curious: you tell us that the code is empty at SonarCloud, but you attached some screenshots with the analysed code.



Additionally, you should use the Scanner for MSBuild to analyse C# code. :wink:

Hello @Alexandre_Holzhey , i have downloaded Scanner for MSBuild but it seems getting the same issue.
command to run SOnar:-

PS C:\SONAR\Scanning>…\sonar-scanner-msbuild\sonar-scanner-\bin\sonar-scanner.bat -X -D"sonar.organization=whatfix" -D"sonar.projectKey=desktop_sonar_analysis" -D"" -D"sonar.login=eccf4df9c24a72aa50323618c0fe145f20685baf" -D"sonar.sourceEncoding=UTF-8" -D"sonar.sources=." -D""

bitbucket url:-

i have attched the log also for more details.sonar.log (32.9 KB)

Hi @chetananand

You should invoke the Scanner for MSBuild directly, not the underlying sonar-scanner.bat.

Hello @mickaelcaro ,

Any particular reason why we need to do that, i am not aware of that, if you have anything related to that, please share, it will be great.

The documentation link that my colleague shared above ( will explain that for you. This is a dedicated scanner, with specific targets that will hook up into you MSBuild task.
