Unable to integrated SonarQube in XCode Objetive C version in Mac OS


I followed below steps:

  1. Downloaded the SonarQube & SonarQube Scanner and moved this folders into Application Folder in my Mac OSx
  2. Downloaded SonarQube Sonar-Objective-C plug in and moved in to Sonar plugins folder
  3. Then started the sonar console
  4. created our XCode Project and integrated pods
  5. Downloaded and updated the sonar-properties files and moved into our XCode Project Structure
  6. Downloaded and updated the sonar-script file for objective-c and moved into XCode Project structure
  7. Updated the XCode project target settings to gather project code coverage for all targets
  8. After this run the sonar-scrit.sh for objective c
  9. then its running and showing error like

ERROR - Command ‘xctool -workspace TestDemoSonarQube.xcworkspace -sdk iphonesimulator ARCHS=i386 VALID_ARCHS=i386 CURRENT_ARCH=i386 ONLY_ACTIVE_ARCH=NO -scheme TestDemoSonarQube clean’ failed with error code: 4

Kindly help us…

Hi @narendarsonar,

a little bit more of context or log output would be nice.

What version of build-wrapper are you using? Could you make sure its version is 6.6?

The main branch has no lines of code.

Hi @narendarsonar,

could you please share the logs of the sonar-scanner?

I shared the sonar-console logs

Can you please help me

Hi @narendarsonar,

I don’t know your configuration but no files are indexed and/or analyzed, please review your configuration and share it if you cannot spot the issue.


I followed sonar-project.properites file contains

Sonar Server details


Project Details

sonar.projectDescription=This is the Sonar demo application for the code quality check

Comment if you have a project with mixed ObjC / Swift


Path to source directories



Exclude directories



Path to test directories (comment if no test)


Destination Simulator to run surefire

As string expected in destination argument of xcodebuild command

Example = sonar.swift.simulator=platform=iOS Simulator,name=iPhone 6,OS=9.2

sonar.swift.simulator=platform=iOS Simulator,name=iPhone 7,OS=12.0

sonar.swift.simulator=platform=iOS Simulator,name=iPhone 7,OS=12.1

Xcode project configuration (.xcodeproj)

and use the later to specify which project(s) to include in the analysis (comma separated list)

Specify either xcodeproj or xcodeproj + xcworkspace


Specify your appname.

This will be something like “myApp”

Use when basename is different from targeted scheme.

Or when slather fails with ‘No product binary found’


Scheme to build your application


Configuration to use for your scheme. if you do not specify that the default will be Debug



Optional configuration


Encoding of the source code





JUnit report generated by run-sonar.sh is stored in sonar-reports/TEST-report.xml

Change it only if you generate the file on your own

The XML files have to be prefixed by TEST- otherwise they are not processed


Cobertura report generated by run-sonar.sh is stored in sonar-reports/coverage-swift.xml

Change it only if you generate the file on your own


OCLint report generated by run-sonar.sh is stored in sonar-reports/oclint.xml

Change it only if you generate the file on your own


Change it only if you generate the file on your own


Paths to exclude from coverage report (surefire, 3rd party libraries etc.)

Can you please confirm one thing,

For iOS Objective - C,
whether we require the Sonar Developer version or Community version.?

Hi @narendarsonar,

it seems like you are not using SonarSource official plugin, you are using swiftlint with a messy configuration, please refer to their support channel if you wish to use their plugin.

To analyze Swift and Objective-C with official SonarSource plugins you need Developer edition.
