📑 This documentation is taken from open-source project testomatio/check-cucumberopen in new window

To import tests into Testomatio run check-cucumber via npx:

TESTOMATIO=API_KEY npx check-cucumber -d example/cucumber

Note: replace API_KEY wit key from Testomatio

CLI Options:

  • -d, --dir - Directory of the project
  • -c, --codeceptjs - If it is codeceptjs project use this option

Note : Running this will create Suites with folder and file name as sub suites.

To change host of endpoint for receiving data, and set it to other than use TESTOMATIO_URL environment variable:


Sample Output


Assign IDs

To set Testomatio IDs for scenarios and features in files run this command with --update-ids option.

TESTOMATIO=API_KEY npx check-cucumber -d example/cucumber --update-ids

Scenarios should already be imported into Testomatio

If you prever to add Test IDs into scenario titles instead of tags enable TESTOMATIO_TITLE_IDS=1 environment variable

Disable Detached Tests

If a test from a previous import was not found on next import it is marked as "detached". This is done to ensure that deleted tests are not staying in Testomatio while deleted in codebase.

To disable this behavior and don't mark anything on detached on import use --no-detached option

TESTOMATIO=API_KEY npx check-cucumber -d example/cucumber --no-detached

This option could also be set via environment variable TESTOMATIO_NO_DETACHED=1. If you don't want to pass it each time, create .env file in the root dir of your project with this variable set.

Synchronous Import

By default check-cucumber doesn't wait for all tests to be processed. It sends request to Testomatio and exits. To wait for processing to finish use --sync option.

TESTOMATIO=API_KEY npx check-cucumber -d example/cucumber --sync

Please note, that this will take a long time on a large codebase.

Clean Test IDs

If you want to import the synced project as new project, you have to clean the test ids. To clean up test ids without connecting to Testomatio project use --purge option:

npx check-cucumber -d example/cucumber --purge

This method may be unsafe, as it cleans all @S* and @T* tags from tests and suites. So if you have a tag like @Test1234 this may also be removed. If you use this option make sure if all the test titles a proper before committing the tests in GIT.

Note: An alias of --purge option is --unsafe-clean-ids.

To clean only test ids set from a specific project use --clean-ids option instead:

TESTOMATIO=API_KEY npx check-cucumber -d example/cucumber --clean-ids

TESTOMATIO is API key for old project.

Import Into a Branch

Tests can be imported into a specific branch if TESTOMATIO_BRANCH parameter is used. Branch is matched by its id. If branch was not found, it will be created.

TESTOMATIO_BRANCH="dev" TESTOMATIO=1111111 npx check-tests CodeceptJS "**/*{.,_}{test,spec}.js"

Keep Structure of Source Code

When tests in source code have IDs assigned and those tests are imported, uses current structure in a project to put the tests in. If folders in source code doesn't match folders in project, existing structure in source code will be ignored. To force using the structure from the source code, use --keep-structure flag on import:

TESTOMATIO=1111111 npx check-tests CodeceptJS "**/*{.,_}{test,spec}.js" --keep-structure

This may be helpful when you want to align current project with the source code and use the source code as the source of truth for tests.

Delete Empty Suites

If tests were marked with IDs and imported to already created suites in newly imported suites may become empty. Use --no-empty option to clean them up after import.

TESTOMATIO=1111111 npx check-tests CodeceptJS "**/*{.,_}{test,spec}.js" --no-empty

This prevents usage --keep-structure option.

Import Into a Specific Suite

To put all imported tests into a specific suite (folder) pass in TESTOMATIO_PREPEND_DIR environment variable:

TESTOMATIO_PREPEND_DIR="MyTESTS" TESTOMATIO=API_KEY npx check-cucumber -d example/cucumber

Import Manual BDD Tests From Source Code

If you have manual tests in the repository and want to import them into Testomatio you can use .manual.feature extension in the feature file. Tests will be imported as well as automated tests and will be marked as manual in Testomatio. For instance:
