Any help will be much appreciated.

Hey there.

You’ll need to configure your repository information in your Project Settings.

‘sonar.pullrequest.github.endpoint’ and ‘sonar.pullrequest.github.repository’ have no effect as analysis parameters.

It’s also very unlikely that this is set correctly (it should be set to a SHA)


I’d suggest not passing it at all and see if auto-configuration picks it up correctly.

Hi Colin,

Thank you for your fast response.
You are right, I passed SHA (-Dsonar.scm.revision=refs/pull/4266d9574c324c5af41870883ea5643801e4b78a/head ) instead of COMMIT_ID - sorry for the confusion by name it ‘commit_id’
I tried with scm.revision param and without - the same result.

I see you recommend passing repository identifier under housekeeping section, but my version is 8.3.1 and looks totally different(see below). I managed to configure GitHub App with client id and secret.
My first guess is that Sonar cannot make the call to Github and I am asking if there is a way to see the underlying http call (REST or GraphQL)?

@Colin, do you have other ideas, how we can investigate further?
