When building a branch (let’s say
branch1), the Checkout code step will do this after cloning the git repository:
git reset --hard "$CIRCLE_SHA1" git checkout -q -B "$CIRCLE_BRANCH" git reset --hard "$CIRCLE_SHA1"
This will make the local reference of
master point to the HEAD of
branch1 before checking out
The first command should probably be simply
git reset --hard or a
git clean -fd (just to ensure that the checkout following it will succeed).
I’ve confirmed the problem with the following build. When building a branch, master is pointing to that same branch:
It creates problems when running SonarCloud analysis, as the scanner will be tricked into thinking that there are no changes in the current branch compared to master:
