after configuration i ran my command “mvn install sonar:sonar” ended up with

ues of the properties sonar.login and sonar.password.

Welcome to the community!

There are a couple things going on here. First, you should prefer a token for analysis rather than login/password. You can generate one via the UI. Click on your avatar at the top-right -> My Account -> Security.

Second, rather than setting credentials in settings.xml, the analysis command line would be better (altho settings.xml ought to work).

And third, you can add -Dsonar.scanner.dumpToFile=[path to file] to see what key/value pairs analysis is actually getting.
