Jenkins : UI Test Capture Plugin

Plugin Information

View UI Test Capture on the plugin site for more information.


Stream, persist and classify UI Test Results from a running Build.

The plugin is agnostic about what test engine you use if the required informations was provided.


See the results while they conclude

If some test fail you can look at its screenshot and Build History

If some tests are Flaky and you want to separate from other tests you can classify them in "App failure" and "Test failure"

Write coments about tests to facilitate maintenance


1. Implement the instrunctions to write the screenshot of the test method before the test close with the following filename convention:

    target/screenshots/[Test Method].png

Exemple in Selenium with Java:

    String actualTest = this.getClass().getName()+"."+testname.getMethodName();
    File scrFile = ((TakesScreenshot)FabricaWebDriver.getDriver()).getScreenshotAs(OutputType.FILE);
    FileUtils.copyFile(scrFile, new File("target/screenshots/"+actualTest+".png"));

2. Also before the test finish, append the test result informations in a text file located on "target/teststream.txt" with the following format:

    {"metodo":"[Test Method], "status":"[Test Result]", "classe":"[Test Class]", "descricao:":"[Display Test Method]"}

Exemple in Selenium with Java:

    public TestWatcher watcher = new TestWatcher() {     @Override
     protected void failed(Throwable e, Description description) {
         status= "falha";
     protected void skipped(AssumptionViolatedException e, Description description) {
         status= "skiped";
     protected void succeeded(Description description) {
         status= "sucesso";
     protected void finished(Description d) {
         try {
             PrintWriter out = new PrintWriter(new BufferedWriter(new FileWriter("target/teststream.txt", true)));
             out.println("{\"metodo\":\""+actualTestMethod+"\", \"status\":\""+status+"\", "
		+ "\"classe\":\""+actualTestClass+"\", \"descricao\":\""+actualTestMethod+"\"}");
         } catch (IOException e) {
