Jenkins & JUnit Integration with the API Tests

https://youtu.be/SCv4BH9pDJA

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:

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

Check out this video to see how to integrate Jenkins and JUnit reporting with the API tests we have created so far as well as how to store environment variable in Jenkins:

You can also clone the GitHub repo to access this code
