output.xml run comment
Does anyone know if it is possible to pass through a run comment in the output.xml that gets uploaded when running an automated test.
Below is my current sample output.xml (which uploads the test result and message appropriately)
<?xml version="1.0" ?>
<ResultElement TestItem="Automation Test">
<Message>Analytics Failed, see log</Message>
<Info>See attached screenshot</Info>
I'd like to be able to push a message that will display in the run comment field of the test run.
It is not possible to add a message to output.xml that is used as a run comment. The run comment field was introduced to manually add a comment to a run, e.g. to describe why a certain run was not finished as expected.
Thanks for the reply @Hubert Inreiter .
Is it possible then to somehow set error messages in the Run Errors report under the Execution reporting folder? I notice this report only shows a count of errors but the description implies an Error message associated to why the run failed is also in there.
However it seems when we go to the Report tab nothing is loaded (I can confirm there is data returned in the Data tab).
I have not modified the query as it's the default one from global reports. I've attached a screenshot to confirm the report I am attempting to use.
I've attached the Report tab which shows nothing. I confirmed the data tab has data rows of test failures returned.
The test type we're using is Process Executor and we're only uploading an output.xml (no JUnit specific result file)
It seems your ChartServer cannot access the Silk Central frontend properly. I'd suggest opening an support case to fix the ChartServer configuration and proceed with the report debugging.
I've attached a screenshot of our SilkCentral admin page. This should mean SilkCentral is able to talk to the Chart servers right?
Or is there another way for me to check this.
Click on the edit action of your chart server. In the dialog click on the "Check" button. If everything is ok you will see a chart in the following dialog.
Do you need two chart servers? I would recommend to focus on one and to set the other "inactive".
