Configure Global Worksoft Continuous Testing Manager Settings

The plugin provides a means to configure an Continuous Testing Manager’s URL and credentials used by all Continuous Testing Manager build steps (unless overridden). To configure this, navigate to Jenkins global configuration settings and paths (Jenkins → Manage Jenkins → Configure System) and locate the Global Worksoft Continuous Testing Manager Settings section:

Global Settings

Configure the URL of the Worksoft Portal (typically http://<portal-server-host>/portal). Please also use user credentials from Worksoft Portal that have all the necessary permissiona dnd roles to retrieve a list of CTM Suites, and perform execution within CTM.

Save these configuration settings after which they can be used by Continuous Testing Manager build steps (Freestyle and Pipeline).

Freestyle Project

Create a Freestyle project and add the Run Continuous Testing Manager Suite build step:

Build Step

Continuous Testing Manager Suite

Select CTM Suite to run a predefined suite configured within Continuous Testing Manager. The Name list box will be populated with all available CTM Suites of which one must be selected. It will include all the Suites associated with each of tenants the user account belongs to. The list will be shown in the format "<Tenant Name> / <CTM Suite Name>".


Configure Alternative Continuous Testing Manager

A Continuous Testing Manager build step can override the global Continuous Testing Manager configuration (see above) by configuring an alternative:

Alt execution

Configure the URL of the Worksoft Portal (typically http://<portal-server-host>/portal):

Portal URL

Optionally, execution wait configuration can be specified. Both the polling interval and maximum run time must be specified in seconds:

Wait Times


This plugin outputs the Worksoft Continuous Testing Manager result set in JSON format to a file named - execMan-result.json - in the associated Jenkins job’s workspace directory. For example:



         "CertifyProcessName":"my process",
         "Title":"google - May 16, 2022 16:02:34",
         "StartingProcessName":"my process",
See Certify Continuous Testing Manager’s API specification for a complete description of the result set.

This file can be read/processed in either a freestyle or pipeline job. For example, in a freestyle job, to retrieve from Certify the failed test steps, add a Groovy build step with Groovy code like:
