JUnit test reports

Introduced in GitLab 11.2. Requires GitLab Runner 11.2 and above.


It is very common that a CI/CD pipeline contains a test job that will verify your code. If the tests fail, the pipeline fails and users get notified. The person that works on the merge request will have to check the job logs and see where the tests failed so that they can fix them.

You can configure your job to use JUnit test reports, and GitLab will display a report on the merge request so that it's easier and faster to identify the failure without having to check the entire log.

Use cases

Consider the following workflow:

  1. Your master branch is rock solid, your project is using GitLab CI/CD and your pipelines indicate that there isn't anything broken.
  2. Someone from you team submits a merge request, a test fails and the pipeline gets the known red icon. To investigate more, you have to go through the job logs to figure out the cause of the failed test, which usually contain thousands of lines.
  3. You configure the JUnit test reports and immediately GitLab collects and exposes them in the merge request. No more searching in the job logs.
  4. Your development and debugging workflow becomes easier, faster and efficient.

How it works

First, GitLab Runner uploads all JUnit XML files as artifacts to GitLab. Then, when you visit a merge request, GitLab starts comparing the head and base branch's JUnit test reports, where:

  • The base branch is the target branch (usually master).
  • The head branch is the source branch (the latest pipeline in each merge request).

The reports panel has a summary showing how many tests failed and how many were fixed. If no comparison can be done because data for the base branch is not available, the panel will just show the list of failed tests for head.

There are three types of results:

  1. Newly failed tests: Test cases which passed on base branch and failed on head branch
  2. Existing failures: Test cases which failed on base branch and failed on head branch
  3. Resolved failures: Test cases which failed on base branch and passed on head branch

Each entry in the panel will show the test name and its type from the list above. Clicking on the test name will open a modal window with details of its execution time and the error output.

Test Reports Widget

How to set it up

NOTE: Note: For a list of supported languages on JUnit tests, check the Wikipedia article.

To enable the JUnit reports in merge requests, you need to add artifacts:reports:junit in .gitlab-ci.yml, and specify the path(s) of the generated test reports.

In the following examples, the job in the test stage runs and GitLab collects the JUnit test report from each job. After each job is executed, the XML reports are stored in GitLab as artifacts and their results are shown in the merge request widget.

NOTE: Note: If you also want the ability to browse JUnit output files, include the artifacts:paths keyword. An example of this is shown in the Ruby example below.

Ruby example

Use the following job in .gitlab-ci.yml. This includes the artifacts:paths keyword to provide a link to the JUnit output file.

## Use to generate a JUnit report with rspec
  stage: test
  - bundle install
  - rspec spec/lib/ --format RspecJunitFormatter --out rspec.xml
      - rspec.xml
      junit: rspec.xml

Go example

Use the following job in .gitlab-ci.yml:

## Use to generate a JUnit report with go
  stage: test
  - go get -u
  - go test -v 2>&1 | go-junit-report > report.xml
      junit: report.xml

Java examples

There are a few tools that can produce JUnit reports in Java.


In the following example, gradle is used to generate the test reports. If there are multiple test tasks defined, gradle will generate multiple directories under build/test-results/. In that case, you can leverage glob matching by defining the following path: build/test-results/test/**/TEST-*.xml:

  stage: test
  - gradle test
      junit: build/test-results/test/**/TEST-*.xml


For parsing Surefire and Failsafe test reports, use the following job in .gitlab-ci.yml:

  stage: test
  - mvn verify
        - target/surefire-reports/TEST-*.xml
        - target/failsafe-reports/TEST-*.xml

C/C++ example

There are a few tools that can produce JUnit reports in C/C++.


In the following example, gtest is used to generate the test reports. If there are multiple gtest executables created for different architectures (x86, x64 or arm), you will be required to run each test providing a unique filename. The results will then be aggregated together.

  stage: test
  - gtest.exe --gtest_output="xml:report.xml"
      junit: report.xml


Currently, the following tools might not work because their XML formats are unsupported in GitLab.
