Node.js package

AssertThat - BDD & Cucumber for Jira provides a Node.js to enable integration with your automated test framework:

The plugin performs 2 main functions:

Download Feature files - download_features

The scenarios and feature files can be downloaded from the plugin into your automation test framework using the plugin provided. In addition to using tags to filter the scenarios for execution, the plugin provides 3 optional fields:

Upload test results (cucumber json file) into AssertThat - upload_report

The AssertThat - BDD Test Automation in Jira will parse the results of the cucumber json file and load them so that the results can be viewed in Jira alongside the user stories - Test Execution status for User Stories. The automated test results will automatically be linked to existing defects and the results loaded into the reporting tool. The failed tests can then be easily reviewed and assigned for further analysis - Automated Test Report Analysis.

Mandatory fields

The only mandatory field required is the projectId. The following parameters are also required however can be passed as environment variables - ASSERTTHAT_ACCESS_KEY and the ASSERTTHAT_SECRET_KEY. All 3 parameters are available from the AssertThat Configuration page - AssertThat Configuration.
