About

The TestComplete Support plug-in lets you run TestComplete tests from Jenkins. The plug-in provides a build step that lets you include TestComplete tests into your Jenkins builds. Also, the plug-in maintains a list of test runs and lets you view test results directly from within Jenkins.

Download and Installation

Usage

  1. Prepare a test computer (node) for automated testing. Make sure the node has everything it needs to run tests successfully:
  2. Add the TestComplete test step to your Jenkins build.
  3. Customize the step’s properties:
  4. Run the build as you would normally do this.
  5. After the build run is completed is over, you will see the TestComplete Test Results link on the build’s page.
    Click the link to view test results.
    In the subsequent screen, click the link in the Test column to explore detailed test results.

Important

The node must run an interactive user session. Otherwise, TestComplete (or TestExecute) will be unable to interact with the UI of the application under test.

If you use TestComplete 10.6 or later, we recommend that you select the Run interactive user session check box in the TestComplete Test’s properties.

If you unable to use this approach for some reason, then an alternative to run an interactive user session is to launch the node and control it via Java Web Start.

If the check box is not clear and you control the node via the Windows service, TestComplete will not run in an interactive user session and your tests will most likely fail.
