To get a local report:

  • To generate an HTML report, set the property 'sonar.issuesReport.html.enable' to 'true'
  • To set the localtion of this report, set the property 'sonar.issuesReport.html.location' (default is '.sonar/issues-report.html' for the Sonar Runner and Ant, 'target/sonar/issues-report.html ' for Maven)
  • To display a short report on in the console, set the 'sonar.issuesReport.console.enable' to 'true':

A useful feature is to limit the scope of the analysis to the files that have been created or modified. To do so, the 'sonar.inclusions' property can be set.
