Using the WebLOAD Jenkins plugin, you can automatically trigger load test scenarios and generate analytics reports. The process is described in the video at the bottom of this page and includes a few simple steps:
Load Session Execution
- You begin by creating a new Jenkins job – a set of actions to be automated. You can trigger a load test through another preceding activity or have it run periodically.
- Next you define the Build action to “Execute WebLOAD load session” and point to the WebLOAD template (*.tpl) file.
- Finally, you define the name for the test run results file. You can optionally define advanced options such as the duration of the run and WebLOAD license parameters.
Load Session Results
- Generate a “WebLOAD Analytics report” type of job in Jenkins.
- Next, define the input file format (same as the test results file you define in the load session.
- Define the output format (HTML, PDF, etc.) and set the WebLOAD Portfolio – the pre-defined or custom WebLOAD type of report.
- Optionally define comparison options – compare results to previous runs.
