About Shallow Clone

Travis use shallow clone by default, and SonarCloud needs commit information, so you need to disable shallow clone:

  depth: false

About PR

Travis doesn’t support SonarCloud in PR build, you should modify your build script like this:

if [ "$TRAVIS_PULL_REQUEST" == "false" ]; then
  echo "Not a pull request build, running build with sonar"
  mvn ... sonar:sonar -Dsonar.projectKey=<project-key>
  echo "Pull request build or local build"
  mvn ...
