Sonarcloud analysis failing to scan java project with node error

  • Error observed:

I have a maven java project, which is scanned via sonarcloud on bitbucket cloud pipeline.
I have been getting errors while scanning, due to a node version not being found, however as this is a java maven project, i don’t need the js/css/html scanning to take place. I have tried disabling by adding this to the pom.xml


But it still tries to scan the js/css/html files. It errors here, when trying to run JS in HTML scan

How do i make sure the exclusion is working, to get sonar to ignore the js/html/css and not require node.js for scanning my maven project?

Hey there.

First thing you can check is in your analysis logs.

[INFO] Project configuration:
[INFO] Excluded sources: **/*.js, **/*.jsx, **/*.cjs, **/*.mjs, **/*.vue, **/*.ts, **/*.tsx, **/*.cts, **/*.mts, **/*.html, **/*.htm, **/*.yaml

Do you see this in your analysis logs?

Yea this line shows in the analysis log

[INFO] 08:30:19.910 Project configuration:
[INFO] 08:30:19.910   Excluded sources: **/build-wrapper-dump.json, **/rent/bike/obw3/client/**/*.java, **/brm-legacy/src/main/webapp/**, **/*.js, **/*.jsx, **/*.cjs, **/*.mjs, **/*.vue, **/*.ts, **/*.tsx, **/*.cts, **/*.mts, **/*.html, **/*.htm, **/*.yaml

But then still seems to run the Javascript inside HTML analysis.

I have since fixed this by creating a docker image with maven and nodejs installed, which seems to fix the issue now
