Integration With Jenkins

Applies to TestExecute 15.40, last modified on May 21, 2024

Jenkins is a build management application that allows automating repeating tasks, for example, obtaining source code from a source code control, building projects, testing applications and so on. You can use the TestComplete Support plugin for Jenkins to include your TestComplete tests in your build and test process in Jenkins.

The topics of this section explain how to create jobs and launch TestComplete test projects from Jenkins using TestExecute.

As an alternative to using the TestComplete Support plugin, you can run your TestComplete tests as part of your build and test process in Jenkins by using the TestExecute command line or the SessionCreator utility command line.

TestExecute Command Line

The TestExecute command line allows you to run automated tests and export test results.


The SessionCreator utility is shipped with TestExecute and allows opening an interactive user session on your Jenkins nodes, running TestComplete tests and exporting test results.

To run the needed tests by using the TestExecute command line or the SessionCreator utility, you can use, for example, the Execute Windows Batch command, or the bat or powershell step (if you use a pipeline).


If you have issues with running your tests in the latest TestComplete or TestExecute version, make sure you have updated the TestComplete Support plugin in Jenkins. Also, we recommend that you specify the Latest version in the Advanced settings when configuring your Freestyle Jobs or directly in your Pipeline script to avoid possible problems.
