Could this be something related to git worktree?

Hi,

You’ve indicated that you ran the end step. That’s not enough. You need to run begin, then your build, then end, as described in the docs.

Hi,

I did run the begin step. I just omitted it because the error occurred when i ran end.

Hi,

Please add this to your begin step and post the logs: /d:sonar.verbose=true.

By the way. Sonarscanner works for this repo if I clone it in a new folder and don´t use git worktrees. Might be good to know

Hi,

Git worktrees seems to be the key here. This is relevant:

 
Ann

OK. Good to know. I will use workarounds
No problem!

I also changed the title a little bit to refelct it

Thanks for all the help

@ganncamp Are there any suggestions on how to work around this? Worktrees are heavily used in our building/testing workflow, so this is preventing us from being able to actually see reported results.

@tyskland Were you able to find a workaround? If so, I’d appreciate if you could share it.

Hi @SakeebHossain,

As you can see in the quoted post above, the problem lies not in our software but in the underlying component, JGit. The best thing you can do is lobby them to prioritize a fix.

 
Ann

Maybe obvious, but I was revisiting this and just thought I’d share: a workaround for this is to temporarily remove the .git file in the repositories you are running sonar-scanner.
