Generates Zephyr for Jira test executions using zapi for protractor tests.

How to use

  • Install protractor-zephyr-reporter-extended with npm
npm install --save-dev protractor-zephyr-reporter-extended
  • Update your protractor.conf.js file
const ZephyrReporter = require('protractor-zephyr-reporter');

// Jasmine does not support promises for reporters, but protractor does for
// onPrepare and onComplete. We can use that to make the reporter async as
// well. Generate two promises on onPrepare and add them as arguments to the
// reporter.
let onPrepareDefer;
let onCompleteDefer;

exports.config = {
    'specs': [
    'framework': 'jasmine2',
    'directConnect': true,
    'capabilities': {
        // the name is what the test cycle will be called. Default is 'no name'
        'name': 'Google Chrome',
        'browserName': 'chrome'
    'onPrepare': function() {

        // first promise is to make sure the cycle is created before the tests start.
        onPrepareDefer = protractor.promise.defer();
        // second promise is to make sure everything is done before protractor
        // quits
        onCompleteDefer = protractor.promise.defer();

        const options = {
            'disabled': false,
            'screenshot': 'fail',
            'version': '1.0',
            'projectId': 'XXX',
            'cycleId': 'XXX',
            'boardId': 'XXX',
            'jiraUser': 'XXX',
            'jiraPassword': 'XXX',
            'zapiUrl': '',
            'jiraUrl': ''

        // add the reporter
        jasmine.getEnv().addReporter(ZephyrReporter(options, onPrepareDefer, onCompleteDefer, browser));

        // return the promises for onPrepare..
        return onPrepareDefer.promise;
    'onComplete': function() {
        // ..and onComplete
        return onCompleteDefer.promise;

Test Setup

A test case is represented by a describe block. The test case ID has to be added at the end of the description with an @ symbol. You can get the test case ID with this API call.


A test step is represented by an it block. The test step ID has to be added at the end of the description with an @ symbol. You can get the test step IDs with this API call.


If you want to use image comparison, the tag has to be the same as the test step ID.

describe('test case description @111111', function() {

    it('should do something @222222', function() {

    it('should do something else @333333', function() {
        expect(browser.params.imageComparison.checkElement((element), '333333')).toBeLessThan(3.5);
