After a SCA scan I get a "[error]: Your license does not allow access to Fortify SCA for Python"

Jump to solution

There is no python code in my project though.

Had this on e JEE project (Java, JSP, JS) & on a NodeJS project.

Is SCA stumbling on something else and incorrectly reporting a Python related error? If so, on what?

Could the vendor uncheck the "solved" status of this thread?  It is not solved.

Same here.

Just running sourceanalyzer -version gives me the error.

This is after a scan that gave me the same error, so I don't know if something's hanging around that causes this, because it's weird.

Here is what I found internally, regarding SCA 18.20.

<<This is a known issue (bug 192054). Fix will be in a future release. Users can safely ignore the error since it’s totally benign.>>

 

Here is another posting with more details for 18.20.

Having the exact same issue with the exact same version of SCA and Java. I found this post as I was searching the error in quotes. I very much agree that this should not be marked as solved and is still an issue.
