Plugin Information

View Testopia on the plugin site for more information.

This plug-in integrates Jenkins and Testopia and generates reports on automated test execution. With this plug-in you can manage your tests in Testopia, schedule and control in Jenkins, and execute using your favorite test execution tool (TestPartner, Selenium, TestNG, Perl modules, PHPUnit, among others).

When filing an issue, remember to include as much data as possible, but avoid including sensitive data, as attachments can take a while to be deleted from JIRA, as the process is manual and quite troublesome (smile)


The Testopia plug-in integrates Jenkins with Testopia. Testopia plug-in uses testopia-java-api to access Testopia XML-RPC API. With the information that you provide in the build step configuration the plug-in retrieves automated tests from Testopia. With the plug-in, you are able to execute build steps that call testing tools. It reads TestNGJUnit and TAP test report formats, used to update Testopia test cases' executions.

The job configuration changed! Now there are three sections, what helps you to configure your job, and add extra build steps, result seeking strategies and general information about Testopioa.

Testopia configuration section

Test Execution section

And Result Seeking Strategy section


You can use environment variables in Test project name, Test plan name or Build name. For instance, build-project-$BUILD_NUMBER would be replaced by build-project- and the number of the Build executed in Jenkins.

How does the plug-in execute my automated tests?

Testopia Plug-in retrieves automated test cases data from Testopia. This data is then set as environment variables. This way your build steps can make use of this information to execute your automated tests.

For instance, you could run a ant command passing a Test Class as parameter, more or less something like this, /opt/java/apache-ant-1.8.0/bin/ant -DtestClass=$TESTOPIA_TESTCASE_TEST_CLASS. In this case, Test Case is the name of a custom field in Testopia.

List of environment variables available during Testopia Plug-in execution:




For each Custom Field found, Testopia Plug-in defines an environment variable for with its name and value, as shown above (%CUSTOM_FIELD_NAME%). If the custom field name contains spaces the plug-in will convert them into _'s. i.e., Test Class can be accessed as %TESTOPIA_TESTCASE_TEST_CLASS% in Windows or $TESTOPIA_TESTCASE_TEST_CLASS in *nix-like systems.

How does the plug-in know if a test passed or failed?

You can choose among different result seeking strategies in your job configuration. The plug-in supports three result formatsTestNGJUnit and TAP

TestNG result seeking strategies

TestNG class name: The plug-in matches the TestNG class name (e.g.: org.tap4j.TestParser) and the key custom field value.

TestNG method name: The plug-in matches the TestNG method name (e.g.: org.tap4j.TestParser#testTokenizer) and the key custom field value.

TestNG suite name: The plug-in matches the TestNG suite name (e.g.: functional tests) and the key custom field value.

JUnit result seeking strategies

JUnit case class name: The plug-in matches the JUnit case class name (e.g.: org.tap4j.TestParser) and the key custom field value.

JUnit case name: The plug-in matches the JUnit case class name (e.g.: testTokenizer) and the key custom field value.

JUnit method name: The plug-in matches the JUnit case class name (e.g.: org.tap4j.TestParser#testTokenizer) and the key custom field value.

JUnit suite name: The plug-in matches the JUnit suite name (e.g.:functional tests) and the key custom field value.

TAP result seeking strategies

TAP file name: The plug-in matches the TAP file name (e.g.: testFtpProtocol.tap) and the key custom field value.

Compatibility Matrix

The plug-in 1.0 and 1.1 versions were pilot projects that should be ignored. They have issues in distributed environments and depend on Maven. Please, consider updating your plug-in to the 2.0 version.

We don't maintain the plug-in for Hudson. Issues happening in Hudson may not be fixed here.
