SonarQube doesn't display code coverage but shows unit tests count

  • Version: Community Edition - Version 8.9.7
  • I’ve prepared .coverage file, codecoverage.xml and .trx file and publishing to sonarqube server but still code coverage is not getting displayed. It shows unit tests count properly.
  • I’ve tried certain online articles and it seems I have set up the reports path properly but somehow it’s not showing code coverage.


Below is the command I am running on aws machine.

SonarScanner.MSBuild.exe begin /k:"XXX" /v:"88" /n:XXX / /d:sonar.login=XXX /d:sonar.skipPackageDesign=true /d:sonar.skipDesign=true /d:sonar.exclusions="*.xml" /d:sonar.verbose="true" /d:sonar.vbnet.vscoveragexml.reportsPaths="XXX\xyz.xml" /d:sonar.vbnet.vstest.reportsPaths="XXX\abc.trx"
MSBuild.exe projectname.sln /p:Configuration=Release /p:Platform="x86"
CodeCoverage.exe collect /output:***\code.coverage vstest.console.exe abc.dll /Settings:XXX\CodeCoverage.runsettings /logger:"trx;LogFileName=abc.trx" /Tests:SomeUnitTestMethods 

CodeCoverage.exe analyze /output:XXX\codecoverage.xml XXX\code.coverage
SonarScanner.MSBuild.exe end /d:sonar.login=XXX

Please help me to resolve the issue. Thanks in advance.

Hey there.

What do the logs from SonarScanner.MSBuild.exe end say? The relevant logs would start around here:

Is this what you are asking to me share? I am using this property to share the report - sonar.vbnet.vscoveragexml.reportsPaths="" in command.

To be honest, I am new to this so not having much idea. Do I need to use any XML report importer?

Please guide. Thanks

I think you are asking for this log,

Is this something breaking?

@Colin ,

I have also got this line. But the code is there so what could be wrong?

Also what is the meaning of this line?

2022-06-21T09:25:56.7904399Z 09:25:56.755 INFO: Coverage Report Statistics: 9 files, 0 main files, 0 main files with coverage, 9 test files, 0 project excluded files, 0 other language files.

It looks like all of the files found in your coverage report are being indexed as test files.

What version of the Scanner for .NET are you using?

I am using this version - MSBuild.SonarQube.Runner.Tool.4.8.0

Hey there.

Let me suggest that you upgrade to the latest version of the SonarScanner for .NET, v5.7.1. v4.8 was released almost 2.5 years ago.
