This plugin allows Jenkins to be integrated with ElasTest, an elastic platform to ease testing.
With this plugin you will be able to:
- Associate a Jenkins Job with an ElasTest TJob. You can create a new project on ElasTest or to use an existing project.
- Use a SUT managed by ElasTest (a SUT deployed by ElasTest or not)
- Send the logs of a build to ElasTest for advanced analyze (ElasTest provides the Log Analyzer, a powerfool tool for finding what you want in the vast flood of logs).
- Send logs and metrics of a SUT started in a Jenkins Job to ElasTest.
- Set ElasTest as your web browsers provider for your end to end tests.
- Request others test support services from ElasTest (ESS, EMS,...). For more information about this, visit the official ElasTest documentation.
To set the configuration of the ElasTest plugin, navigate to 'Manage Jenkins > Global Tool Configuration' and search the section labeled with 'ElasTest Plugin'.
In the image avobe you can see the following fields:
- ElasTest URL: URL where ElasTest is deployed. This field is mandatory.
- Username: username used to get access to ElasTest. If this field is filled, the password will be mandatory.
- Password: password to access to ElasTest.
You can use the ElasTest plugin if you use Jobs based on "Freestyle project" or "Pipeline" templates.
With Freestyle project
If you prefer to work with Freestyle projects, you should look at the Job Configuration Page in the section "Build environment" and check the option "Integrate the Job with ElasTest". With this, you will have activated the shipping logs to ElasTest. If in addition to this, you want to use the browser provided by ElasTest, you must check the EUS field.
In this type of projects, the ElasTest plugin not offers all it's functionalities.
If you prefer to work with Jobs based on Pipeline templates instead, you must add the next step to your pipeline script to wrap the rest of the pipeline.
Above we have shown you a basic example without using any plugin option. Here is an example with all the plugin options and below the descriptions of them:
The meaning of each parameter is the following:
- surefireReportsPattern: will contain the path where the xml files containing the test results are stored and which will be used by ElasTest to display the test information. We explain this in more detail here.
- project: is used to indicate the name of the ElasTest project where the TJob associated with Jenkins Job will be created. This field is optional and if it is not used, a project will be created with the same name as the Job.
- sut: allows you to select a Sut created in ElasTest against which to execute the job, indicating its id.
- tss: is used to indicate to ElasTest that the job needs to use the EUS service to use a web browser.
- monitoring: used to send or not the Sut monitoring traces to ElasTest.
- sutParams: used to send parameters to a SUT on ElasTest.
