Older versions of this plugin may not be safe to use. Please review the following warnings before using an older version:

This plugin can be used to both execute and report on FitNesse tests so that they can be integrated into a Jenkins build.
Contributions are welcome, both bug fixes and new features. Just raise a pull request via GitHub.

CI Server



  • You could define a JDK installation (not mandatory). All JDKs will be available in the job configuration.

Slave node

  • If your job runs on a slave and launch FitNesse, you should add the HOST_NAME environment variable in slave configuration and set its value to the slave’s hostname or IP. You can name it as FITNESSE_HOST_NAME (whatever you like). This environment variable will be used when you set up fitnesse instance below (replace localhost by $FITNESSE_HOST_NAME).

  • You could also override JDK location used, by set a Tool location:

or by overridden JAVA_HOME environment variable.


Project settings in build step

  • For existing FitNesse instance: host and port where FitNesse is running

  • For new FitNesse instance:
    • JDK: selected JDK, JVM args and Java working directory
    • Paths: fitnesse.jar and FitNesseRoot path
    • Fitnesse: port use and command line args

  • In all cases:
    • Target page
    • HTTP and test timeout
    • Results file name

Project settings in post-build step

  • Results file name: the name of the result file ; if there is several files, you can use wildcards.


  • On project page : a new chart with result trend and a little summary

  • All tests result in a page:

  • And finally, captured details of a test:


  • (star) Run fitnesse tests using "-c" option when starting new fitnesse instance
  • (star) Add more control over fitnesse start-up params
  • (star) Using glob to collect (potentially) multiple results.xml files
  • (star) Nest Sub-suites and tests-within-suites within the uber-parent FitnesseResults instance
  • (star) Allow direct URL access to sub-suites and tests-within-suites so that every level can have its history graph
  • (star) Run multiple test suites from one project configuration
