TestRail Integration With LambdaTest Selenium Grid


TestRail is a modern test case management tool which offers a comprehensive web-platform for software testers and developers. Offering a JIRA add-on for cloud-based integration, TestRail helps you to track, manage, and hasten software release cycle.

TestRail also offers integration with LambdaTest to help you perform automated cross browser testing through an on-cloud Selenium Grid offering 2000+ browsers. LambdaTest Selenium Grid integration to TestRail  will help you run your Selenium automation scripts from TestRail instance to our cloud-based Selenium Grid.

Prerequisites#

  1. Global Dependencies

    • Make sure you have Maven installed.
    • You could also install Maven with Homebrew with the below command:
      $ install maven
  2. Project Dependencies

    • Clone our GitHub repository for Selenium & TestRail.

    • Ensure that the required packages are made available using the below command:

       $ cd Java-TestNG-Selenium-TestRail
    • We recommend, you execute the below command for evaluating any outdated dependencies. As a best practice, it is always suggested to go for a verification check & perform any update, if needed, prior editing your pom.xml in order to avoid any code incompatibility.

      mvn versions:display-dependency-updates
    • For authentication purpose, make sure you have your Testrail credentials – URL, Username and Password.

Integrating LambdaTest With TestRail#


Step 1:  Clone our GitHub repository for Selenium & TestRail.

Step 2:  Open Eclipse and import the cloned project as maven project.

Step 3:  Add Java Library into the project.

Step 4:  Follow the Readme.md file for how to run the test.

Step 5:  Once test would get run then find your result logged in Testrail for given test case and run id.

Running Automation Scripts Using LambdaTest Selenium Grid & TestRail#


Step 1:  Required JAVA files for TestRail integration are inside package com.library.utils.testrail.

Step 2:  In your test file you actually create an object of TestRailHandler like below:

TestRailHandler trh = new TestRailHandler(testrailusername,testrailpassword, testrailurl)

Step 3:  Then call it’s method as below:

trh.updateResultToTestRail(executionstatus, run_id, testcase_id);

Step 4:  In above arguments execution status is numeric number that denotes pass, fail statuses defined in TestRail. Example: Pass -> 1, Fail -> 5 etc.

Step 5:Use the below command to execute a single test.

//To run single test$ mvn test -P single

Once Test gets run, it logs result in TestRail as output mentioned here:

Kudos! Now you can deploy your code in a reliable & faster manner at scale, using LambdaTest integration with TestRail, for automated cross browser testing with Selenium Grid. Happy Testing!
