SpiraTest Integration with JasmineJS Now Available

20-Feb-2019 by Inflectra Product News

We are pleased to announce the release of the SpiraTest JasmineJS extension. This new plugin lets you integrate SpiraTest seamlessly into your web browser and/or NodeJS testing environment. With our new extension you can tell Jasmine to report back the results of your automated tests directly to SpiraTest in addition to logging to the console of the machine running the test.

About JasmineJS

Jasmine is a behavior-driven development framework for testing JavaScript code. It does not depend on any other JavaScript frameworks. It does not require a DOM. And it has a clean, obvious syntax so that you can easily write tests.

Some key features of Jasmine are:

  • Fast- Low overhead, jasmine-core has no external dependencies.

  • Batteries Included - Comes out of the box with everything you need to test your code.

  • NodeJS and Browser - Run your browser tests and Node.js tests with the same framework.

About SpiraTest

How do you know that all of your requirements have been tested? Are you currently reliant on spreadsheets and documents? Do you have to juggle between separate tools such as Jira, Jenkins, and Selenium to keep track of it all? Do you wish your requirements management, testing tools, and defect trackers were all in sync?

SpiraTest is the powerful test management tool from Inflectra. SpiraTest is trusted by over 3,000 organizations to manage their testing activities.

What Does the Integration do Exactly?

The new Jasmine reporter will integrate JasmineJS with Inflectra's ALM suite. It will create a test run in SpiraTest, SpiraTeam, or SpiraPlan for each test spec executed in Jasmine.

How Do I Get The New Extension?

Simply go to the Spira Reporter for Jasmine NPM Page and install the package.

Setting up the integration

Install the integration by running npm i jasmine-spiratest in the root directory of your tests. Inside each test spec file, import the SpiraReporter with var SpiraReporter = require('jasmine-spiratest') then put the line jasmine.getEnv().addReporter(new SpiraReporter(spiraCredentials)); where spiraCredentials is an object of the format below. You can see a full sample test spec at the bottom of this README.

{
    "url": "https://doctor/SpiraPlan",
    "username": "fredbloggs",
    "token": "{XXXXXXXX-XXXX-XXXX-XXXX-XXXXXXXXXXXX}",
    "projectId": 1,
    "releaseId": 1,
    "testSetId": 1,
    "testCases": {
        "default": 20,
        "should multiply correctly": 21,
        "should solve exponents and logarithms correctly": 16
    }
}

Fields are required unless otherwise noted.

Field Description
url The root URL of your SpiraTest instance without a '/' at the end
username The username you use to sign into SpiraTest
token Your RSS Token. Foundin your profile page as the RSS Token field. You must have RSS Feeds enabled for this to work
projectId The ID of the project you would like the Test Runs to be filed under
releaseId OPTIONAL - Use if you would like to associate created test runs with a release
testSetId OPTIONAL - Use if you would like to associated created test runs with a test set
testCases Must contain the default field within it and, optionally, specific test cases for a given test spec name
default Inside the testCases field, this is the ID of the default test case mapped to a created test run
<spec_name> OPTIONAL - Use as many times as you would like to map a the created test run for a spec to a particular test case in SpiraTest. Note that capitalization, special characters and spaces are ignored both in testCases and the spec itself

Once you have added the SpiraReporter to the jasmine environment in each file as described above, you are all set!

Using the SpiraTest Reporter

Actually, you don't do anything different! Just run npm test or however you ran jasmine before and you should see test runs created in the project you specified!

Sample Test Spec with SpiraTest Integration

describe("Test having two specs", () => {
    var SpiraReporter = require('jasmine-spiratest');
 
    jasmine.getEnv().addReporter(new SpiraReporter({
        "url": "https://doctor/SpiraPlan",
        "username": "fredbloggs",
        "token": "{XXXXXXXX-XXXX-XXXX-XXXX-XXXXXXXXXXXX}",
        "projectId": 1,
        "releaseId": 1,
        "testSetId": 1,
        "testCases": {
            "default": 20,
            "equality works": 21,
            "addition works": 16
        }
    }));
 
    describe("Test basic JavaScript", () => {
        it("Equality works...", () => {
            expect(2).toEqual(2);
        });
        it("Addition works", () => {
            expect(3 + 2).toEqual(5);
        });
        it("Multiplication works", () => {
            expect(4 * 5).toEqual(20);
        });
    });
});
