  • After setting up the vREST NG CLI properly, all you need to do is build the project. If the test cases passes, then the build will pass, otherwise the build fails.

Publish Reports on Jenkins Server

By default, vrest-ng-cli command writes the report in 'vrest_logs/logs.xml' if logger 'xunit' is used.

In Jenkins Project Configuration, select "Add post-build action" >> "Publish JUnit test result report" in the "Post-build Actions" section and add the vrest logs path in field "Test report XMLs".
