If you’re like many development teams, there’s a good chance you’re moving towards testing automation. Succeeding with this kind of automation depends a lot on the tools you use, including the reporting tools you choose. Here are some quick tips about the top 3 automation reporting tools.
Allure Report is available in multiple languages and is lightweight but comprehensive. It is an open source tool and integrates with a variety of popular platforms and scripts, testing applications and languages.
It provides in-depth and detailed reporting tools and has flexible analytics. As an OSS, Allure Report is free to use, which is a big plus. However, you do have to rely on the community for support, which might not be ideal. Qameta Software has recently released a step-by-step guide on how to create your first report.
ReportPortal is another online, Open Source reporting tool that is easy to use and intuitive. It integrates easily with most testing platforms “out of the box” so it’s easy to set up.
It is well supported, and there are regular updates and improvements to the platform. As an OS tool, it is free to use, but it is fairly resource heavy, so that might be a factor to consider.
Klov is a reporting platform that is built for the Extent Framework. There is a professional and a community version (which has been deprecated recently), and the community version is simply a stripped down option with fewer features. This platform has an easy to use interface, and all the basics you might need for test reporting. However, of course, the paid version does offer more features, and many users might find that the freemium model restricts usage.
All of these testing automation reporting platforms are actively supported in the development community, and it’s fairly easy to find resources and information. So if you’re looking for a free tool to create your reports, any of these will do the job.
