Universal Agent Settings

Test Result Parser

The Test Result Parser (or parser) will translate the test results generated by a specific test automation framework, to a format defined by the Automation Host. The output of the parser will be submitted to qTest Manager by the Universal Agent when it kicks off its execution.

Each parser is implemented as a NodeJS application. You can download the parser, which is provided as a .zip package, to your machine. Learn the implementation logic. Build your own parser. Add it to the Universal Agent settings as custom parser, then use it in your Universal Agent configuration!

Built-in Parsers

Currently, there are 3 built-in parsers provided by qTest Launch, that you can use when creating or configuring your Universal Agent.

  • JUnit for Java: this parser translates the JUnit test result, generated by the test framework, that generates results under the JUnit format. e.g. Cucumber, JUnit, JBehave
  • Tosca JUnit: this parser translates the JUnit test result generated by Tosca.
  • Postman Json: this parser translates the test result generated by Newman, which is the Postman command line tool that executes postman tests, under the JSON format.
    • Note: refer to this article to learn more about the Newman command line tool.

Download Parser

    The example below shows how the structure of JUnit for Java parser which supports MacOS looks like:

Custom Parsers

These parsers are created and uploaded to qTest Launch by your organization.
