(Uma Gopala Krishna Kandiboti) #1

Template for a good bug report, formatted with Markdown:

  • versions used (SonarQube, Scanner, Plugin, and any relevant extension)
  • error observed (wrap logs/code around triple quote ``` for proper formatting)
  • steps to reproduce
  • potential workaround

P.S.: use the #bug:fault sub-category if you’re hitting a specific crash/error , or the #bug:fp sub-category for rules-related behaviour

got this exception:

I’m a Sonar customer, not an employee. That said, it will be very difficult to help with this error without at minimum the following information:

  • What version of Sonar Scanner CLI are you using?
  • What version of SonarQube server are you using?
