Hi,

Caused by: javax.net.ssl.SSLHandshakeException: PKIX path building failed: sun.security.provider.certpath.SunCertPathBuilderException: unable to find valid certification path to requested target

this means the Java runtime you’re using for Sonarqube Scanner has no valid cacerts file
(path = JAVA_HOME\jre\lib\security\cacerts) with the root CAs needed for authenticating.

Thank you @Rebse or immediate response. It is using the JRE with in the Sonar Scanner, how to update or add the certificate to it. Which certificate i need to add.

Hi,

OK, you’re using the Sonarqube Scanner release with the builtin JRE.
BTW, this is a gotcha :slight_smile: Faced the same problem once after updating the scanner with
that version unintentional.
The builtin cacerts has this path, i.e. the windows client

sonar-scanner-4.0.0.1744-windows\jre\lib\security\cacerts

For an SSL connection to https://yoursonarhost the Java client = Sonarqube Scanner needs a
truststore = cacerts (default name) that has the RootCAs of your organization.
If your machine already has a Java runtime installed, it might be possible it has already the right cacerts file, then either

use the Sonarqube Scanner without JRE or
copy the cacerts to …\jre\lib\security\cacerts of your Sonarqube Scanner.
Otherwise ask your Java admin for the cacerts file.

If you’re on your own, this might be helpful:

Thank you @Rebse. Appreciate the detailed steps, as you rightly said, the certs are missing, received the required sets from SonarQube admin and updated the same in the jre path and its working as expected.

This is my first post in SonarSource Community and really appreciate for the warm welcome :slight_smile:
