Workaround: Start IntelliJ with sudo.

Hi,

Are you on Mac or Linux? Is there any restriction on your IntelliJ process to access your node installation?

I had the same problem.
I am on Mac.
What do you mean by restriction?
I have admin rights on my user.
The workaround works.

I am running on Mac. There are no restrictions, I installed The Toolbox normally and installed IntelliJ Ultimate through it.

@tenoriojuann: according to your other thread (about TypeScript not being found), this issue might also be due to the (old) version of the TypeScript analyzer that you use - recent versions of the analyzer rely upon the run-node library to find the Node runtime on macOS.

@vipirain: are you using the connected mode, and if so what is the version of the TypeScript analyzer on your SonarQube server?

Yes, connected mode.
SonarTS 1.9.0.3766

Thanks for the confirmation.

I would strongly advise that you update the version of the JavaScript and TypeScript analyzers on your SonarQube server, if possible: there were a lot of fixes and improvements in this past year :slight_smile:

If not, one possible workaround is to make sure that your IDE is started with the node executable somewhere in the PATH environment variable, e.g by starting it from a terminal that has the correct environment, modifying IntelliJ’s start script or using your own script.

Same problem here, but I have configured node executable on intellij settings:

permissions are ok: -rwxr-xr-x 1 dgarcia@xxx xxx 34913326 sep 10 2018 node*

the plugin should take it from here, isn’t it?

Hello, thanks for your message.

Unfortunately, this is not the case. The JavaScript/TypeScript analyzer embedded by SonarLint will try to run the node executable:

  • either from the sonar.nodejs.executable property (see Settings > Tools > SonarLint > Project Settings)
  • or directly from the PATH environment variable

Using the one set in the “Node.js and NPM” settings could be a nice UX improvement; however it would be only available when the Node.js integration plugin is installed, which is not necessarily the case.
