SonarQube GitHub Actions can't find and test-report.xml, but works locally

Hi folks,

I’m trying to run SonarQube ( as part of our GitHub Actions workflow, and I’m facing an issue. SonarQube complains about coverage/ and test-report.xml not being present, but I’m pretty sure they both are. My problem might be a path issue though.

When running sonar-scanner locally, everything works fine. When pushing to, the pipeline starts, parses as expected, but fails since it can’t find test-report.xml and coverage/

Analysis parameters (apart of project key, github organization and host url)

Thank you

Welcome to the community!

Why do you think the files are present?

Just for the record, is SonarCloud, not “SonarQube”. They are different products of SonarSource :wink:
