Configuration issues

Scanner configuration error

Your .sonarcloud.properties file contains a configuration issue that has caused the analysis of your project to fail. 

To fix this configuration issue, either:

  • Ensure that the user-defined source path is not absolute, for example,  sonar.sources=/etc/conf, or; 
  • Ensure that the user-defined source path is not defined to access the outside of the bound, for example,  sonar.sources=../../xyz.


Conflicting file matches pattern

A file extension has been configured for multiple languages.

To fix this configuration issue, either:

  • Edit your sonar-project.properties file and update the *.suffixes patterns, or;
  • At the project level, go to Administration > General Settings, select the Languages tab, and fix the patterns in the languages you previously configured.

Encoding error

Your .sonarcloud.properties file contains an encoding error or can not be read correctly.

Please make sure that the encoding of the .sonarcloud.properties file is UTF-8.

Encoding is invalid

The value provided for sonar.sourceEncoding is invalid.

Please provide a valid value, commit and push to trigger a new analysis.

Invalid ignore issues all file regex

The pattern to ignore all issues (except the ones from the common repository) on files is not correct.

At the project level, go to Administration > General Settings, select the Analysis Scope tab, and fix the regular expression used for Ignore Issues on Files.

Invalid ignore issues block regex

The patterns to ignore all issues (except the ones from the common repository) on specific blocks of code are not correct.

At the project level, go to Administration > General Settings, select the Analysis Scope tab, and fix the regular expressions used for start/end of block used for Ignore Issues in Blocks.

Source and tests files overlap

The patterns for the source and test files are part of the same element creating an unpermitted overlap. Please verify the configuration in your .sonarcloud.properties file:

# Path to sources
#sonar.sources=.
#sonar.exclusions=
#sonar.inclusions=

# Path to tests
#sonar.tests=
#sonar.test.exclusions=
#sonar.test.inclusions=

Project is not found

The project was not found due to permission issues. Please verify that:

  • the sonar.projectKey and sonar.organization properties are properly configured in your .sonarcloud.properties file. 
  • your SONAR_TOKEN is available to analysis (by passing it as an environment variable for example) and issued by a user with execute analysis permission on the project.

For example, when using GitHub Actions, make sure that the SONAR_TOKEN environment variable:

  •  is properly configured in GitHub under Your organization > Your repository > Settings > Security > Actions > Repository secrets
  • is used in your GitHub Actions workflow run: 
env:
          GITHUB_TOKEN: ${{ secrets.GITHUB_TOKEN }}  
          SONAR_TOKEN: ${{ secrets.SONAR_TOKEN }}

Source files are not found

One or more patterns targeting source files lead to a non-existent directory. Please verify this part of the configuration in your .sonarcloud.properties file:

# Path to sources
#sonar.sources=.
#sonar.exclusions=
#sonar.inclusions=

Test files are not found

One or more patterns targeting test files lead to a non-existent directory. Please verify this part of the configuration in your .sonarcloud.properties file:

# Path to tests
#sonar.tests=
#sonar.test.exclusions=
#sonar.test.inclusions=
