Jenkins Reports | Understanding reports in Jenkins

In the automation era, developing test scripts is just one of the overall test automation cycle parts. We can develop the test scripts to validate whether the functionality is working fine or not. Still, execution results matter a lot because test scripts are only understandable by technical people. If we talk about higher management or stakeholders or non-technical person, they don’t care about the technical aspects of test scripts; they only care about execution results at the end. So, we need to summarize all our execution results into one report so that anyone can analyze the final status of execution results by just seeing that report. This is where Test Reporting comes into the picture, and Jenkins Reporting capabilities is one of the most known features of Jenkins.

Subsequently, in this article, we will try to understand a few of the reporting formats supported by Jenkins. Then, we will understand how to configure and use those Jenkins reportings by covering the details in the following topics:

  • What are reports in Jenkins?
  • How to Publish JUnit report in Jenkins?
  • What is Jenkins HTML report?
  • How to set up a plugin for HTML report in Jenkins?
  • How to publish HTML reports in Jenkins?

What are reports in Jenkins?

Reports are basically the structured as well as a graphical way to produce the execution results of tests. As we discussed in the introductory part that we generate reports so that higher management, stakeholders as well as other team members who have less technical knowledge can also easily understand the success ratio of our scripts, and based on that, they can analyze the quality of our test scripts as well as product.

In Jenkins’s perspective, different formats of reports are available. It depends on us that in which format we want to publish our results. These reports can be graphical, tabular, or in other detailed formats. The Jenkins reporting capabilities majorly depend on third-party plugins. So, we will need to install and configure a compatible plugin for the same whatever the report’s expected format. Let’s quickly see how we can integrate and view JUnit reports in Jenkins.

Jenkins Is Getting Old — It’s Time to Move On

By far, Jenkins is the most adopted tool for continuous integration, owning nearly 50% of the market share. As so many developers are using it, it has excellent community support, like no other Jenkins alternative. With that, it has more than 1,500 plugins available for continuous integration and delivery purposes.

We love and respect Jenkins. After all, it’s the first tool we encountered at the beginning of our automation careers. But as things are rapidly changing in the automation field, Jenkins is** left behind with his old approach**. Even though many developers and companies are using it, most of them aren’t happy with it. Having used it ourselves on previous projects, we quickly became frustrated by its lack of functionality, numerous maintenance issues, dependencies, and scaling problems.

We decided to investigate if other developers face the same problems and quickly saw the need to create a tool ourselves. We asked some developers at last year’s AWS Summit in Berlin about this. Most of them told us that they chose Jenkins because it’s free in the first place. However, many of them expressed interest in trying to use some other Jenkins alternative.

Jenkins — How Can We Get Started Jobs in Jenkins (Part 3)

In the previous article, we learned how to create Users + Manage + Assign Roles in Jenkins. In this article, I will be highlighting how can we create some basic JOBS in Jenkins. Furthermore, these are the points which I am going to explain.

  • How to create a basic Job in Jenkins.
  • Basic Job Configurations.
  • How to run the Job remotely.
  • How to chain Job Execution

How to create a basic Job in Jenkins?

First of all **click **on New Item on the Jenkins Dashboard. Then Give a name to your project. Then you can select a **Freestyle **or **Multi-configuration **project. For this tutorial please go with the Freestyle project. Then click on the **Okay **button.

As soon as you complete these simple steps you will be taken to the **configuration **window. Here you can provide different details about Jobs. There are 5 sections available. **General, Source Code Management, Build Triggers, Build, **and Post-build Actions.

General Section

Here you can provide a quick description of your project or Job. You can preview it also. You can also use HTML tags inside the description.

Source Code Management Section

So here in case you want to take the build from any source code system like Git, Bitbucket, or any other source code management portals. We need to add plugins to those source code repositories. But in the coming tutorials, we will see how exactly we can get our build and trigger our Job from a source code management system.
