How to get SonarLint logs

  • Enable the Show Verbose Logs and select the Show Analyzer Logs options in the extension settings.

Troubleshooting Connected Mode setup

No matching project found

No matching project is found because:

  • It's best if you already have the project open in your IDE, otherwise SonarLint might not be able to find a matching file. 
  • SonarLint can get confused if you have more than one project open in different windows. Please close the non-applicable project and try again.

If these solutions don't help, follow these instructions to manually configure the project binding.

No matching issue found

SonarLint can't find your issue because:

  • You might not be on the same branch.
  • The issue was fixed, or the source code may be different from the analyzed version.
