ReportPortal js client

This Client is to communicate with the Report Portal on Node.js.

Library is used only for implementors of custom listeners for ReportPortal.

Already implemented listeners:

Examples for test framework integrations from the list above described in examples repository.

Installation

The latest version is available on npm:

npm install @reportportal/client-javascript

Usage example

const RPClient = require('@reportportal/client-javascript');

const rpClient = new RPClient({
    apiKey: 'reportportalApiKey',
    endpoint: 'http://your-instance.com:8080/api/v1',
    launch: 'LAUNCH_NAME',
    project: 'PROJECT_NAME'
});

rpClient.checkConnect().then((response) => {
    console.log('You have successfully connected to the server.');
    console.log(`You are using an account: ${response.fullName}`);
}, (error) => {
    console.log('Error connection to server');
    console.dir(error);
});

Configuration

When creating a client instance, you need to specify the following options:

Option Necessity Default Description
apiKey Required User's reportportal token from which you want to send requests. It can be found on the profile page of this user.
endpoint Required URL of your server. For example, if you visit the page at 'https://server:8080/ui', then endpoint will be equal to 'https://server:8080/api/v1'.
launch Required Name of the launch at creation.
project Required The name of the project in which the launches will be created.
headers Optional {} The object with custom headers for internal http client.
debug Optional false This flag allows seeing the logs of the client. Useful for debugging.
isLaunchMergeRequired Optional false Allows client to merge launches into one at the end of the run via saving their UUIDs to the temp files at filesystem . At the end of the run launches can be merged using mergeLaunches method. Temp file format: rplaunch-${launch_uuid}.tmp.
restClientConfig Optional Not set axios like http client config. May contain agent property for configure http(s) client, and other client options eg. timeout. For debugging and displaying logs you can set debug: true.
launchUuidPrint Optional false Whether to print the current launch UUID.
launchUuidPrintOutput Optional 'STDOUT' Launch UUID printing output. Possible values: 'STDOUT', 'STDERR', 'FILE', 'ENVIRONMENT'. Works only if launchUuidPrint set to true. File format: rp-launch-uuid-${launch_uuid}.tmp. Env variable: RP_LAUNCH_UUID.
token Deprecated Not set Use apiKey instead.

Asynchronous reporting

The client supports an asynchronous reporting. If you want the client to work asynchronously change v1 to v2 in addresses in endpoint.

API

Each method (except checkConnect) returns an object in a specific format:

{
    tempId: '4ds43fs', // generated by the client id for further work with the created item
    promise: Promise // An object indicating the completion of an operation
}

The client works synchronously, so it is not necessary to wait for the end of the previous requests to send following ones.

Timeout (30000ms) on axios requests

There is a timeout on axios requests. If for instance the server your making a request to is taking too long to load, then axios timeout will work and you will see the error 'Error: timeout of 30000ms exceeded'.

You can simply change this timeout by adding a timeout property to restClientConfig with your desired numeric value (in ms) or 0 to disable it.

checkConnect

checkConnect - asynchronous method for verifying the correctness of the client connection

rpClient.checkConnect().then((response) => {
    console.log('You have successfully connected to the server.');
    console.log(`You are using an account: ${response.fullName}`);
}, (error) => {
    console.log('Error connection to server');
    console.dir(error);
});

startLaunch

startLaunch - starts a new launch, return temp id that you want to use for the all items within this launch.

const launchObj = rpClient.startLaunch({
    name: 'Client test',
    startTime: rpClient.helpers.now(),
    description: 'description of the launch',
    attributes: [
        {
            'key': 'yourKey',
            'value': 'yourValue'
        },
        {
            'value': 'yourValue'
        }
    ],
    //this param used only when you need client to send data into the existing launch
    id: 'id'
});
console.log(launchObj.tempId);

The method takes one argument:

  • launch data object:
Option Necessity Default Description
startTime Optional rpClient.helpers.now() Start time of the launch (unix time).
name Optional parameter 'launch' specified when creating the client instance Name of the launch.
mode Optional 'DEFAULT' 'DEFAULT' - results will be submitted to Launches page, 'DEBUG' - results will be submitted to Debug page.
description Optional '' Description of the launch (supports markdown syntax).
attributes Optional [] Array of launch attributes (tags).
id Optional Not set ID of the existing launch in which tests data would be sent, without this param new launch instance will be created.

To get the real launch ID (also known as launch UUID from database) wait for the returned promise to finish.

const launchObj = rpClient.startLaunch();
launchObj.promise.then((response) => {
    console.log(`Launch real id: ${response.id}`);
}, (error) => {
    console.dir(`Error at the start of launch: ${error}`);
})

As system attributes, this method sends the following data (these data are not for public use):

  • client name, version;
  • agent name, version (if given);
  • browser name, version (if given);
  • OS type, architecture;
  • RAMSize;
  • nodeJS version;

ReportPortal is supporting now integrations with more than 15 test frameworks simultaneously. In order to define the most popular agents and plan the team workload accordingly, we are using Google Analytics.

ReportPortal collects only information about agent name, version and version of Node.js. This information is sent to Google Analytics on the launch start. Please help us to make our work effective. If you still want to switch Off Google Analytics, please change env variable. 'REPORTPORTAL_CLIENT_JS_NO_ANALYTICS=true'

finishLaunch

finishLaunch - finish of the launch. After calling this method, you can not add items to the launch. The request to finish the launch will be sent only after all items within it have finished.

  • data object:
Option Necessity Default Description
endTime Optional rpClient.helpers.now() End time of the launch.

getPromiseFinishAllItems

getPromiseFinishAllItems - returns promise that contains status about all data has been sent to the reportportal. This method needed when test frameworks don't wait for async methods until finished.

agent.getPromiseFinishAllItems(agent.tempLaunchId).then(() => done());
Option Necessity Default Description
tempLaunchId Required tempId of the launch started by the current client process
