Simple upload of Cypress test results to TestRail

Read the blog post Cypress And TestRail. For testing, this is a private TestRail project.

Install

Add this plugin as a dev dependency

# If using NPM
$ npm i -D cypress-testrail-simple
# If using Yarn
$ yarn add -D cypress-testrail-simple

Cypress v10+

Include this plugin from your cypress.config.js file E2E (or component tests) Node callback

// cypress.config.js
const { defineConfig } = require('cypress')

module.exports = defineConfig({
  e2e: {
    // other settings, like baseUrl
    async setupNodeEvents(on, config) {
      await require('cypress-testrail-simple/src/plugin')(on, config)
    },
  },
})

Cypress before v10

Add the plugin to your Cypress plugin file

// cypress/plugins/index.js
module.exports = async (on, config) => {
  // https://github.com/bahmutov/cypress-testrail-simple
  await require('cypress-testrail-simple/src/plugin')(on, config)
}

Environment variables

When running the Cypress tests on CI, you need to provide the TestRail server variables through the process (OS) environment variables. The following variables should be set:

TESTRAIL_HOST=
TESTRAIL_USERNAME=
; the user password or API key for the user
; API key is preferred
TESTRAIL_PASSWORD=
; Note: the project ID is not very sensitive value
TESTRAIL_PROJECTID=
; if you use suites, add a suite ID (with S or without)
TESTRAIL_SUITEID=...

If these variables are present, we assume the user wants to use the plugin. You can disable the plugin by passing an argument

module.exports = async (on, config) => {
  // skip loading the plugin
  await require('cypress-testrail-simple/src/plugin')(on, config, true)
}

Bin commands

testrail-start-run

To start a new TestRail run

runId=$(npx testrail-start-run)

You can pass an optional test run name and description

runId=$(npx testrail-start-run "test run" "test run description")

You can redirect the run ID into a file

npx testrail-start-run > runId.txt

Arguments

  • --name optional name for the test run, alias -n
  • --description optional description for the test run, alias -d
  • --suite optional suite ID, alias -s
  • --spec optional globby pattern for finding specs, extracting case IDs (using the C\d+ regular expression), and starting a new TestRail run with those case IDs only. Alias -s. This option is very useful if only some test cases are automated using Cypress. See the workflow examples in .github/workflows/cases.yml and .circleci/config.yml.
  • --dry only parses the arguments and finds the test case IDs, but does not trigger the run
  • --set-gha-output sets the created TestRail run id as GitHub Actions output testRailRunId
npx testrail-start-run --name "test run" --description "test run description"
# prints the run id

For readability, you can split the command across multiple lines usually

npx testrail-start-run \
  --name "test run" \
  --description "test run description" \
  --spec "cypress/e2e/featureA/**.js"

--find-specs

You can let this utility find the Cypress specs (via find-cypress-specs) and extract the test case IDs. Instead of --spec parameter, use --find-specs flag.

npx testrail-start-run \
  --name "test run" \
  --description "test run description" \
  --find-specs

--tagged

Sometimes you want to pick the tests with a tag to create a new test run. You can use the combination of --find-specs and --tagged tag to pick only the test case IDs for tests with effective tag "tag"

npx testrail-start-run \
  --find-specs --tagged @user

You can list several tags, if a test has any one of them, it will be picked.

// example spec file
describe('parent', { tags: '@user' }, () => {
  describe('parent', { tags: '@auth' }, () => {
    it('C50 works a', { tags: '@one' }, () => {})
    it('C51 works b', () => {})
  })
})
describe('outside', { tags: '@new' }, () => {
  it('C101 works c', () => {})
})

For example, --find-specs --tagged @new will only pick the test "works c" to run with its id 101. If you want to run the authentication tests, you can call --find-specs --tagged @auth and it will pick the case IDs 50 and 51.

testrail-run-results

Shows the TestRail run results

npx testrail-run-results --run 60

Prints a table with test cases

testrail-close-run

To close an open test run, pass the run ID as an argument or in the file ./runId.txt

# read the run ID from the command line argument
npx testrail-close-run 60
# read the run ID from the file runId.txt
npx testrail-close-run

This script allows two explicit parameters:

  • --run <run ID> to pass the run ID to close
  • --force to skip checking if the test run has all the tests completed

testrail-check-case-ids

Prints the list of case IDs for the given TestRail project and optionally verifies them against the IDs found in the Cypress spec files

# just print the list of TestRail cases and titles
$ npx testrail-check-case-ids
# compare the case IDs in the Cypress specs
# against the TestRail project
$ npx testrail-check-case-ids --find-specs

When comparing the cases in the spec files against the TestRail project, if there are extra case IDs found in the spec files, the script exits with code 1.

Testing locally

Run with all case IDs found from the specs

  1. create a new test run
as-a . node ./bin/testrail-start-run \
  --name "local test run" \
  --description "test run description" \
  --find-specs

Prints the new test run ID, for example 635

  1. Run the tests
as-a . npx cypress run --env testRailRunId=635
  1. Close the TestRail run
as-a . node ./bin/testrail-close-run 635

Run with tagged tests

  1. create a new test run for tests tagged "@regression"
as-a . node ./bin/testrail-start-run \
  --name "local test run for tag @regression" \
  --description "test run description" \
  --find-specs --tagged @regression

Prints the new test run ID, for example 662

  1. Run the tests
as-a . npx cypress run --env testRailRunId=662
  1. Close the TestRail run
as-a . node ./bin/testrail-close-run 662

Sending test results

During cypress run the plugin can send test results for each test case found in the test title using C\d+ regular expression. To send the results, you need to pass the TestRail run ID. There are several was of doing this:

  • pass the run ID as an environment variable TESTRAIL_RUN_ID
$ TESTRAIL_RUN_ID=635 npx cypress run
  • pass it via Cypress env value testRailRunId
$ npx cypress run --env testRailRunId=635
  • read it from the text file runId.txt (written there by the testrail-start-run script)

Print test case information

Use the script "testrail-print-case"

$ npx testrail-print-case --case <test case id>

Examples

Debugging

This tool uses debug to output verbose logs. To see the logs, run it with environment variable DEBUG=cypress-testrail-simple.

To start a new test rail run locally and see how the new run is created

$ as-a . node ./bin/testrail-start-run.js --spec 'cypress/e2e/\*.js'

Make sure this plugin is registered correctly in your cypress/plugins/index.js file and the plugin function is declared with the async keyword in v3. During the test run, you should see messages like this after each spec

Sending test results to TestRail

Why?

Because cypress-testrail-reporter is broken in a variety of ways and does not let me open issues to report the problems.

Migration

v1 to v2

The config plugin registration function used to take 2 parameters (it is unclear from the tests)

// v1
// cypress/plugins/index.js
module.exports = (on, config) => {
  // https://github.com/bahmutov/cypress-testrail-simple
  require('cypress-testrail-simple/src/plugin')(on)
}

In the second version, we need to pass both the on and the config parameters

// v2
// cypress/plugins/index.js
module.exports = (on, config) => {
  // https://github.com/bahmutov/cypress-testrail-simple
  require('cypress-testrail-simple/src/plugin')(on, config)
}

If you want to skip the plugin's registration step, pass the 3rd argument

// v2
// cypress/plugins/index.js
module.exports = (on, config) => {
  const skipPluginRegistration = true
  // https://github.com/bahmutov/cypress-testrail-simple
  require('cypress-testrail-simple/src/plugin')(
    on,
    config,
    skipPluginRegistration,
  )
}

v2 to v3

The plugin registration function has changed from synchronous to async. This means your Cypress plugin file also needs to be marked async and await the registration.

// v2
// cypress/plugins/index.js
module.exports = (on, config) => {
  // https://github.com/bahmutov/cypress-testrail-simple
  require('cypress-testrail-simple/src/plugin')(on, config)
}

Now

// v3
// cypress/plugins/index.js
module.exports = async (on, config) => {
  // https://github.com/bahmutov/cypress-testrail-simple
  await require('cypress-testrail-simple/src/plugin')(on, config)
}
