Sonarqube analysis does not create projects on the fly in github action

  • versions used (SonarQube, Scanner, Plugin, and any relevant extension)
    SonarQube: * Developer Edition Version 7.9.1 (build 27448)
    Gradle Plugin 3.0

  • error observed
    When I run gradle sonarqube in local mac/windows, I’m able to create projects on the fly

 ./gradlew sonarqube
          -Dsonar.host.url=http://sonar....
          -Dsonar.login=....

However, during github action run the following error is thrown:

* Exception is:
org.gradle.api.tasks.TaskExecutionException: Execution failed for task ':sonarqube'.

Caused by: Project was never analyzed. A regular analysis is required before a branch analysis

Through trial and error I did also notice that if I unset the environment variable GITHUB_EVENT_PATH, the project creation works in github action.

export GITHUB_EVENT_PATH= && ./gradlew sonarqube …

  • potential workaround
    Unset GITHUB_EVENT_PATH environment variable before running github action

Hi,
If I remember correctly, with the LTS the analysis of a pull request won’t create the project in SonarQube.
Looks like the GitHub action is analyzing a pull request (or short lived branch) for a project that doesn’t exist in SonarQube yet:

Caused by: Project was never analyzed. A regular analysis is required before a branch analysis

You can either analyze the master branch first or provision the project in the Administration and then that P/R analysis should work fine.

Hi Duarte,

This is a run from the master branch. We did a full clone of the repo just to make sure everything is checked out in the github action. Looks like scanner is reading something from github properties that makes it do the branch analysis instead of the master.

Thanks,
Jose

That’s right, the scanner detects the branch configuration automatically based on the environment.
You can disable that by setting -Dsonar.ci.autoconfig.disabled=true.

That config didn’t work for me. But I tried -Dsonar.branch.autoconfig.disabled=true and it worked.

Thanks
