Table of Content

In this post, we’ll take a look at how to integrate API tests with Jenkins as well as add JUnit reporting with it.

Installation / Setup

  • You can check out this video to install Jenkins locally
  • Publish API tests to GitHub

Setup Test Job

  • Create a new freestyle test job
  • Add the necessary Source Code Management details (example – repository URL and Jenkins credentials)
  • In the build step (choose either Windows batch command or shell command), add the steps you use to run your tests locally. For example –
npm install // to install all the packages
npm test // to run your tests
  • In the post-build step, choose the JUnit report option and add your report path, example – test*.xml
  • Save changes and Build the project

You should see a successful build as well as JUnit reporting along with it, similar to this:

JUnit Report

There you go, now you have Jenkins as well as JUnit reporting setup for your API tests 🙌
