Test coverage parameters

Test coverage reports describe the percentage of your code that has been tested by your test suite during a build.

This differs from test execution reports, which describe which tests within your test suite have been run during a build. For details, see test execution parameters.

Test coverage reports are not generated by SonarQube itself. They must be generated by an external tool and then imported into SonarQube by specifying a parameter telling the scanner where to look for the report. The data is then displayed in your SonarQube analysis.

Below, you will find language- and tool-specific analysis parameters for importing test coverage reports.

For information on analysis parameters in general, see analysis parameters.

Unless otherwise specified, these properties require values that are relative to the project root. Some properties support the following wildcards in paths. The remarks for properties that support wildcards will mention this fact. If wildcards are not noted for a given property, then they are not supported for that property.

You can use the xccov-to-sonarqube-generic.sh script from the sonar-scanning-examples/swift-coverage project to convert output from Xcode 13.3's xccov tool to the Generic test data format.

See the community guide for help with importing your coverage or test data.
