VSCode sonalint no issues synced with sonarqube server

Please provide

  • Operating system: Windows 10
  • SonarLint plugin version: 3.13.0
  • Programming language you’re coding in: C++
  • Is connected mode used: Yes
    • Connected to SonarCloud or SonarQube (and which version): Sonarqube server 9.6.1

And a thorough description of the problem / question:
In connected mode and bounded the folder with the project I cannot see the issues in the VSCode, I think that there are some problems syncing the issues and/or rules from the server because I have this message:

[Debug - 10:40:14.642] [SYNC] Code analyzer 'cxx' does not support SonarLint. Skip downloading it.

[Debug - 10:40:17.826] GET 200 https://<domain>/sonarqube/api/issues/pull?projectKey=wlpfo&branchName=master&languages=apex,c,cpp,css,web,java,js,php,plsql,py,secrets,ts,xml,yaml&changedSince=1675071612817 | response time=56ms

[Debug - 10:40:17.826] Pulled issues in 56ms

[Debug - 10:40:17.828] Merged 0 issues in store. Closed 0. | took 1ms

If I disconnect Sonarlint the issues appears but are diferent from the server because Sonarlint in local mode is using diferent rules.

Hello, welcome to the community! And thank you for you report.

cxx is the identifier for the community C++ plugin which is unfortunately not supported in SonarLint.

AFAICT, connected mode for C++ in SonarLint for VSCode is only supported with the SonarSource C/C++ analyzer, which is available on SonarCloud or one of the commercial editions of SonarQube.

So, We are using a diferent analyzer in our sonarqube server and for this reason I cannot see issues in sonarlint. If we change it to SonarSource with build-wrapper-win-x86 and sonar-scanner- will work ?

Maybe, the problem is that we are using community edition ?

As far as I can tell, you will indeed need to use either SonarCloud, or a commercial edition of SonarQube to benefit from connected mode features for C++.

For what it’s worth, both SonarQube Developer Edition and SonarCloud have pretty competitive pricing :wink:
