SonarCloud Report Issues

Getting Started

bitegarden Report for SonarCloud™ requires Java 8 to run.


Here you have a quick usage guide to generate PDF reports from SonarCloud™.

Once you have downloaded the product you will have an auto executable "jar" file.

Just put it anywhere in your filesystem and run the jar with --help option to see all the available options:

java -jar bitegarden-sonarcloud-report.jar --help

You will get something like this:

Mandatory properties:

           sonar.token = your user token to authenticate against SonarCloud
      sonar.projectKey = the project key from SonarCloud. You can find it in SonarQube project information
 sonar.organizationKey = the SonarCloud organization the project belongs to
           report.type = 0 (executive summary) Default value
                         1 (issues summary)
                         2 (full issues breakdown)
                         3 (excel report)
                         4 (Vulnerabilities, Bugs and Code Smells summary report)
                         5 (Security Hotspots summary report)
                         6 (Vulnerabilities, Bugs and Code Smells breakdown report)
                         7 (Security Hotspots breakdown report)

Optional properties:

         sonar.branch = the branch where we will get the information for the report (default is main branch)
    sonar.pullRequest = the pull request where we will get information for the report
* disable.qualitygate = If you enable this option the quality gate status won't be displayed (default is false)
   * disable.coverage = If you enable this option the coverage section in the summary page won't be displayed (default is false)
         * footer.url = URL of the image to display centered in footer (PNG or JPG format are supported)
          user.locale = Locale to use for generated PDF file. Options are English (user.locale=en) or Spanish (user.locale=es)
               output = File name for the generated report

* Properties only supported on PDF report

All the properties should be passed to the command line app using Java system properties with "-D" or using a custom properties file.

If you use a custom properties file you should run the application with the "config.file" parameter and provide the path to the properties file:

java -jar bitegarden-sonarcloud-report.jar

If you just want to pass the required parameters through system properties use "-D" arguments when running the report:

java -Dsonar.token=mytoken -Dsonar.projectKey=myprojectkey -Dsonar.organizationKey=myorg -Dreport.type=0 -jar bitegarden-sonarcloud-report.jar

If a property is defined in both locations (file and command line args) the command line property will override the property in the file. This way you can have a generic configuration file with the common properties (sonar.token, sonar.organizationKey, report.type, ...) and then use command line args for specific properties like sonar.projectKey or sonar.branch.

Running the report with a license key

By default when you download the product you will be able to use it during 14 days. Once your evaluation is finished, you will need to purchase the product and get a valid license key.

The license key will be provided as a text file. In order to use this license file you must set the property "license.file" in your configuration file (or through command line args) with the path of your license file.

This is a sample running a licensed product using a command line argument:

java -Dlicense.file=PATH_TO_LICENSE_FILE -jar bitegarden-sonarcloud-report.jar

It is up to you to include the "license.file" property in your configuration file or use it as a command line argument with "-D".

Troubleshooting and Support

When you run the reports the product will display all the information for both the license and the configuration on the standard output. If you have any problem please open a support request in our customer portal and we will be happy to help you find a solution.
