Sonarlint false positive for test file with fast-check tests

If your question is about SonarLint in the IntelliJ Platform, VS Code, Visual Studio, or Eclipse, please post it in that sub-category.

Otherwise, please provide:

  • Operating system: linux mint
  • IDE name and flavor/env: webstorm

And a thorough description of the problem / question:

I’m using sonarlint on a typescript project.
I have a test file for some utility functions that contain only property tests (using the GitHub - dubzzz/fast-check: Property based testing framework for JavaScript (like QuickCheck) written in TypeScript library, more specifically the @fast-check/vitest package):

describe('toISODate', () => {
  test.prop([])('should match expected format', (date) =>

  test.prop([])('should return a parseable date', (date) => !Number.isNaN(Date.parse(toDateISOString(date))));

  test.prop([])('should be parsed as input date without time', (date) => {
    const withoutTime = new Date(date);
    const parsed = new Date(Date.parse(toDateISOString(date)));

    return parsed.getTime() === withoutTime.getTime();
// and other similar describe blocks…

Sonarlint incorrectly raises the “Test files should contain at least one test case” error.
