# Import Tests

Testomat.io can import automated tests into a project. We provide CLI tools for different frameworks so you get visibility of your tests in seconds. On this page we collect the reference to them. Learn how to install and configure test importer for your project.

# JavaScript

📑 This documentation is taken from open-source project testomatio/check-tests (opens new window)

Use this checker as CLI tool with any Continuous Integration service.

Run check-tests via npx:

npx check-tests <framework> "<tests>" --no-skipped

# Development

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

TESTOMATIO_URL=http://local.testomat.io

This checker will fail a build if exclusive tests (with .only or fit or fdescribe found)

# Arguments:

  • test framework
  • glob pattern to match tests in a project, example: tests/**_test.js'. It is important to include glob pattern in double quotes " so wildcard could be used correctly.

# CLI Options:

  • --no-skipped - fail when skipped tests found
  • --typescript - enable typescript support
  • -g, --generate-file <fileName> - Export test details to document
  • -u, --url <url>, Github URL to get file link (URL/tree/master)

# Example

To generate test document

check-tests mocha "tests/*_test.js" -g Test-doc.md -u https://github.com/testomatio/check-tests/tree/master

Check tests for CodeceptJS

npx check-tests codeceptjs "tests/**_test.js"

Check tests for Protractor

npx check-tests protractor "spec/**.spec.js"

Check tests for Protractor with TypeScript

npx check-tests protractor "spec/**.spec.ts" --typescript

Check tests for Cypress.io

npx check-tests cypress "cypress/integration/**.js"

Check tests for Testcafe

npx check-tests testcafe "tests/**.js"

# Sample Output

List CodeceptJS tests

When found .only test:

✗ npx check-tests mocha "test/**/**_test.js"

[[ Tests checker by testomat.io ]]
Error: Exclusive tests detected. `.only` call found in test/checkout/important_test.js:290
Remove `.only` to restore test checks

# Using in Testomatio

This library is used by Testomatio (opens new window) to import tests.

# Importing Into Project

Use TESTOMATIO environment variable with a valid API key to import data into a project. API key can be obtained on project settings page or on "Import From Source" page.

For example:

TESTOMATIO=11111111 npx check-tests CodeceptJS "**/*{.,_}{test,spec}.js"

# 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=11111111 npx check-tests CodeceptJS "**/*{.,_}{test,spec}.js" --no-detached

# Synchronous Import

By default check-tests 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=11111111 npx check-tests CodeceptJS "**/*{.,_}{test,spec}.js" --sync

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

# Auto-assign Test IDs in Source Code

To disable guess matching for tests it is recommend to use Testomatio IDs to map a test in source code to a test in Testomatio. Testomatio IDs can be put automatically into the test names into source code when --update-ids option is used:

TESTOMATIO=11111111 npx check-tests CodeceptJS "**/*{.,_}{test,spec}.js" --update-ids

Tests imported with --update-ids will be processed in synchronouse mode, so the script will finish after all tests are processed.

# Keep Test IDs Between Projects

To import tests with Test IDs set in source code into another project use --create option. In this case, a new project will be populated with the same Test IDs.

TESTOMATIO=11111111 npx check-tests CodeceptJS "**/*{.,_}{test,spec}.js" --create

Without --create import will fail with a message that ID was not found.

# 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-tests CodeceptJS "**/*{.,_}{test,spec}.js" --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: --purge is an alias of --unsafe-clean-ids option.

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

TESTOMATIO=11111111 npx check-tests CodeceptJS "**/*{.,_}{test,spec}.js" --clean-ids

TESTOMATIO is API key of a project with existing test ids.

# 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, Testomat.io uses current structure in a project to put the tests in. If folders in source code doesn't match folders in Testomat.io 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.

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

# TypeScript

For TypeScript projects @babel/core and @babel/plugin-transform-typescript packages are used. GitHub Action already contains those modules, while CLI version of this tool tries to automatically install them on first run.

If you face issues parsing TypeScript file menitioning @babel/core or @babel/plugin-transform-typescript try to install them manually:

npm i @babel/core @babel/plugin-transform-typescript --save-dev

Now tests TypeScript can be imported with --typescript option:

TESTOMATIO=11111111 npx check-tests CodeceptJS "**/*{.,_}{test,spec}.js" --typescript

# Programmatic API

Import Analyzer from module:

const { Analyzer } = require('check-tests');

const framework = 'jest';
const pathToTests = './tests';
const pattern = '**/*[._-]{test,spec}.{ts,js}';

const analyzer = new Analyzer(framework, pathToTests);

// to enable typescript...
analyzer.withTypeScript();

// to enable babel plugins
analyzer.addPlugin('@babel/plugin-syntax-jsx');
analyzer.addPlugin('@babel/plugin-syntax-flow');

// to enable babel presets
analyzer.addPreset('@babel/preset-react');
analyzer.addPreset('@babel/preset-flow');

analyzer.analyze(pattern);

// stats on processed files
const stats = analyzer.stats;

// full info on parsed tests
const data = analyzer.rawTests;

# Limitations

  • Can't analyze included tests from external files
  • Can't analyze dynamically created tests

# Cucumber

📑 This documentation is taken from open-source project testomatio/check-cucumber (opens 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 app.testomat.io use TESTOMATIO_URL environment variable:

TESTOMATIO_URL=https://beta.testomat.io

# Sample Output

check-cucumber-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

# 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

# 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

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"

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:

mark-as-completed.manual.feature

# PHP

📑 This documentation is taken from open-source project testomatio/php-list-tests (opens new window)

This CLI utility prints all tests in PHP project without executing them. Easily check the number tests and get live documentation for your tests in markdown format!

Supports PHPUnit & Codeception.

This CLI script is also used to import tests into Testomat.io application.

# Installation

composer require testomatio/list-tests --dev

# Usage

To print all tests execute list-tests script pointing to directory with tests:

php vendor/bin/list-tests test/

This will print output similar to this:

To print tests into a file execute command with --markdown option providing a filename to save info into:

php vendor/bin/list-tests tests --markdown test-docs.md

This command will save test list into "tests.md" file.

To show test list with links to corresponding files on GitHub/GitLab/BitBucket use PREPEND_URL environment variable and set a base URL for tests files.

PREPEND_URL=https://github.com/testomatio/php-list-tests/tests php vendor/bin/list-tests tests --markdown tests.md 

This will generate a file similar to test-docs.md in this repository.

# Import into Testomat.io (opens new window)

This script can also import tests from PHP project into the testomat.io project. Pass in TESTOMATIO API KEY of your project to import tests:

TESTOMATIO={api-key} php vendor/bin/list-tests tests
