SonarCloud stays empty after running sonar-scanner

Hello, I am trying to get my dot net core code analised and sent to sonarCloud. Everything seems to runs smoothly but sonarCloud keeps showing no data:

dotnet-sonarscanner /k:Lobosque_ts-backend /o:lobosque /d:sonar.sources=. / /d:sonar.login=xxx

Output then is:

SonarScanner for MSBuild 4.6.2
Using the .NET Core version of the Scanner for MSBuild
WARNING: Please specify the command 'begin' or 'end' to indicate whether pre- or post-processing is required. These parameters will become mandatory in a later release.

What else do I need to run in order to the report data on SonarCloud?


In your command you didn’t specify the “begin” step. Also, you don’t need to set the sonar.sources property. The “corrected” command is:

dotnet sonarscanner begin /k:Lobosque_ts-backend /o:lobosque / /d:sonar.login=xxx

Then you must build your project and run the “end” step. :wink:

For reference:

The .NET Core version can also be used as a .NET Core Global Tool. After installing the Scanner as a global tool as described above it can be invoked as follows:

dotnet sonarscanner begin /k:"project-key" 
dotnet build <path to solution.sln>
dotnet sonarscanner end 

Same as above, if you are targetting a SonarCloud project, will have to add both the organization and a login for authentication.

@Felipe thanks for point that out. After struggling a little I was finally able to get it working. However, there are two things I still need help getting coverage sorted.
We have many different, independent test projects that we get our coverage using - How do I tell sonarscanner where the different coverage.json files are? Is it capable of merging them together?

Thank you again,
