This plug-in integrates Jenkins with 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, prove, 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-driver 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.

You can use environment variables. 

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_SCRIPT. In this case, TESTOPIA_TESTCASE_SCRIPT the value of the script automation field in Testopia.

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

Already implemented:
Test run info
Test case info

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 will support three result formatsTestNGJUnit and TAP

Already implemented:

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.

Does the plugin record the test results in Testopia?

Yes, the plugin will update the testcase in Testopia and set the status according to the result of the testcase.

Compatibility Matrix

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


















Testopia Plug-in used TestLink Plug-in as basis. Below you will find resources for Testopia and TestLink plug-ins, as the concept in both plug-ins is very similar.
