Autotest documentation

I am new to autotest framework. I am able to run the tests for Copter. I can see a huge log on the console and also log files in the buildlogs directory. Is there any tool to visualize the tests status ? How do the get the summary of all failed test cases?

You should get a summary at the end of the run on failing and skipped tests.

The full autotest suite also writes out a summary html file - but running it in that mode isn’t for the faint of heart…

Thanks, I could see the test summary with --show-test-timings option.

I could a jenkins file that was deleted in 2015 from the repo, assuming all the test functionality has been moved to github actions.

Is there any way, i can get xunit style result.xml file from the test run, so that i can visualize the tests and traverse through them on the GUI to make my life easier? :stuck_out_tongue:

Welll… do you know Python? :slight_smile:
