Build and Test NPM Version NPM Weekly Downloads NPM Downloads Docker Pulls

A Newman HTML reporter that has been extended to include the separation of the iteration runs so these are no longer aggregated together and also some additional handlebars helpers to enable users to create better custom templates.

This reporter comes with a dashboard style summary landing page and a set of different tabs which contain the detailed request information. There are also a few optional configuration flags available, to tailor the final report in a number of different ways.


If you're a fan of the project and you wanted to show your appreciation by keeping me highly caffeinated - You can do that here 😍

Report Example

Default Report


Interactive Example Report

To give you an idea of what the final report will look like, I've added a working example here for you to get your hands on:


Install

The reporter works as a plugin with Newman so ensure that you have already installed that package globally, using npm install -g newman.

To globally install the htmlextra package:

npm install -g newman-reporter-htmlextra

To use htmlextra as a library, install the package as a dependency into a nodejs project's package.json file using:

npm install -S newman-reporter-htmlextra

To install node, newman and the htmlextra packages together, use this command to pull the Docker image:

docker pull dannydainton/htmlextra

Usage

In order to enable this reporter, specify htmlextra in Newman's -r or --reporters option. The following command will create a new report in the ./newman directory, if the directory does not exist, it will be created as part of the Newman run.

newman run collection.json -r htmlextra

CLI Options

With Newman CLI

CLI Option Description Example
--reporter-htmlextra-export <path> Specify a path where the output HTML file will be written to disk. If not specified, the file will be written to newman/ in the current working directory. newman run collection.json -r htmlextra --reporter-htmlextra-export ./results/report.html
--reporter-htmlextra-template <path> Specify a path to the custom template which will be used to render the HTML report. This option depends on --reporter htmlextra and --reporter-htmlextra-export being present in the run command. If this option is not specified, the default template is used newman run collection.json -r htmlextra --reporter-htmlextra-template ./template.hbs
--reporter-htmlextra-showOnlyFails Use this optional flag to tell the reporter to display only the requests with failed tests. newman run collection.json -r htmlextra --reporter-htmlextra-showOnlyFails
--reporter-htmlextra-testPaging Use this optional flag to add pagination to the tests in the request view. newman run collection.json -r htmlextra --reporter-htmlextra-testPaging
--reporter-htmlextra-browserTitle Use this optional flag to change the name of the title in the browser tab. The default name is "Newman Summary Report". newman run collection.json -r htmlextra --reporter-htmlextra-browserTitle "My Newman report"
--reporter-htmlextra-title This optional flag can be used to give your report a different main Title in the centre of the report. If this is not set, the report will show "Newman Run Dashboard". newman run collection.json -r htmlextra --reporter-htmlextra-title "My Newman Report"
--reporter-htmlextra-titleSize An optional flag to reduce the size of the main report title. The sizes range from 1 to 6, the higher the number, the smaller the title will be. The default size is 2. newman run collection.json -r htmlextra --reporter-htmlextra-titleSize 4
--reporter-htmlextra-logs This optional flag shows any console log statements in the collection, on the final report. This is false by default. newman run collection.json -r htmlextra --reporter-htmlextra-logs
--reporter-htmlextra-hideRequestBody An optional flag which allows you to exclude certain Request Bodies from the final report. Enter the name of the request that you wish to hide. newman run collection.json -r htmlextra --reporter-htmlextra-hideRequestBody "Login"
--reporter-htmlextra-hideResponseBody An optional flag which allows you to exclude certain Response Bodies from the final report. Enter the name of the request that you wish to hide. newman run collection.json -r htmlextra --reporter-htmlextra-hideResponseBody "Auth Request"
--reporter-htmlextra-showEnvironmentData An optional flag which allows you to show all the Environment variables used during the run, in the final report newman run collection.json -r htmlextra --reporter-htmlextra-showEnvironmentData
--reporter-htmlextra-skipEnvironmentVars An optional flag which allows you to exclude certain Environment variables from the final report newman run collection.json -r htmlextra --reporter-htmlextra-skipEnvironmentVars "API_KEY"
--reporter-htmlextra-showGlobalData An optional flag which allows you to show all the Global variables used during the run, in the final report newman run collection.json -r htmlextra --reporter-htmlextra-showGlobalData

--reporter-htmlextra-skipSensitiveData An optional flag that will exclude all the Request/Response Headers and the Request/Response bodies, from each request in the final report. This will only show the main request info and the Test Results. This is false by default. newman run collection.json -r htmlextra --reporter-htmlextra-skipSensitiveData
--reporter-htmlextra-showMarkdownLinks An optional flag which allows you render Markdown links from the test names and pm.expect() statements, in the final report. This could be useful if you use an external bug tracker. newman run collection.json -r htmlextra --reporter-htmlextra-showMarkdownLinks
--reporter-htmlextra-noSyntaxHighlighting An optional flag which allows you disable the code syntax highlighting. This could enhance the performance of opening larger reports. newman run collection.json -r htmlextra --reporter-htmlextra-noSyntaxHighlighting

With Newman as a Library

All the CLI functionality is available for programmatic use within a nodejs script.

Creating a very basic nodejs project can be done like this:

  • Create a new directory using mkdir <new dir name>
  • Move to the new directory using cd <new dir name>
  • Create a package.json file using npm init -y
  • Install the required node modules using npm i -S newman newman-reporter-htmlextra
  • Create a new <filename>.js file and add the script below which contains the current list of reporter options
  • Add your collection.json file reference to the script and run using node <filename>.js

Once the node script has run, the report will be created in the default ./newman directory. A new save location can be specified using the export flag.

To enable the functionality of a given feature, uncomment any of the options within the htmlextra object.

const newman = require('newman');
 
newman.run({
    collection: './pathToFile/collection.json', // Collection URL from a public link or the Postman API can also be used
    reporters: ['htmlextra'],
    iterationCount: 1,
    reporter: {
        htmlextra: {
            // export: './report.html',
            // template: './template.hbs'
            // logs: true,
            // showOnlyFails: true,
            // noSyntaxHighlighting: true,
            // testPaging: true,
            // browserTitle: "My Newman report",
            // title: "My Newman Report",
            // titleSize: 4,
            // omitHeaders: true,
            // skipHeaders: "Authorization",
            // hideRequestBody: ["Login"],
            // hideResponseBody: ["Auth Request"],
            // showEnvironmentData: true,
            // skipEnvironmentVars: ["API_KEY"],
            // showGlobalData: true,
            // skipGlobalVars: ["API_TOKEN"],
            // skipSensitiveData: true,
            // showMarkdownLinks: true,
            // showFolderDescription: true,
            // timezone: "Australia/Sydney"
        }
    }
});

Running The Reporter With Docker

A docker image dannydainton/htmlextra has been created for the reporter and can be found on Docker Hub

Basic Usage

Using this command, it will pull down the image and run the Postman Collection with Newman. Once the run has completed it will create a new report file in the /newman dir.

docker run -t -v $(pwd):/etc/newman dannydainton/htmlextra run collection.json -r htmlextra

Using an environment file during the Newman run:

docker run -t -v $(pwd):/etc/newman dannydainton/htmlextra run collection.json -e environment.json -r htmlextra

Using either the Shared Collection link from the Postman App or using the Postman API Link to the files:

docker run -t -v $(pwd):/etc/newman dannydainton/htmlextra run <URL to Collection> -e <URL to Environment> -r htmlextra

Each of these command can be used with the different CLI flags to create the final report that you require.

Special mention

This work have been hugely inspired and copied several aspects of the great work done by Martijn Vander Vlag to create the newman-reporter-htmlfull package. Check out that package too, this contains many of the same aggregation features.

It was also brought together by reviewing the feature requests, from the official Postman HTML reporter and implementing them into this reporter.
