To install pytest plugin execute next command in a terminal:

pip install pytest-reportportal

Look through the CONTRIBUTING.rst for contribution guidelines.


Prepare the config file pytest.ini in root directory of tests or specify any one using pytest command line option:

py.test -c config.cfg

The pytest.ini file should have next mandatory fields:

  • rp_uuid - value could be found in the User Profile section

  • rp_project - name of project in Report Portal

  • rp_endpoint - address of Report Portal Server

Example of pytest.ini:

rp_uuid = fb586627-32be-47dd-93c1-678873458a5f
rp_endpoint =
rp_project = user_personal
rp_launch = AnyLaunchName
rp_launch_attributes = 'PyTest' 'Smoke'
rp_launch_description = 'Smoke test'
rp_ignore_attributes = 'xfail' 'usefixture'
  • The rp_uuid can also be set with the environment variable RP_UUID. This will override the value set for rp_uuid in pytest.ini

The following parameters are optional:

  • rp_launch = AnyLaunchName - launch name (could be overridden by pytest –rp-launch option, default value is ‘Pytest Launch’)

  • rp_launch_id = xxxxxxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxxxxxxxxxx - id of the existing launch (the session will not handle the lifecycle of the given launch)

  • rp_launch_attributes = 'PyTest' 'Smoke' 'Env:Python3' - list of attributes for launch

  • rp_parent_item_id = xxxxxxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxxxxxxxxxx - id of the existing test item for session to use as parent item for the tests (the session will not handle the lifecycle of the given test item)

  • rp_tests_attributes = 'PyTest' 'Smoke' - list of attributes that will be added for each item in the launch

  • rp_launch_description = 'Smoke test' - launch description (could be overridden by pytest –rp-launch-description option, default value is ‘’)

  • rp_log_batch_size = 20 - size of batch log request

  • rp_log_batch_payload_size = 65000000 - maximum payload size in bytes of async batch log requests

  • rp_log_level = INFO - The log level that will be reported

  • rp_log_format = [%(levelname)7s] (%(name)s) %(message)s (%(filename)s:%(lineno)s) - Format string to be used for logs sent to the service.

  • rp_ignore_attributes = 'xfail' 'usefixture' - Ignore specified pytest markers

  • rp_is_skipped_an_issue = False - Treat skipped tests as required investigation. Default is True.

  • rp_hierarchy_dirs_level = 0 - Directory starting hierarchy level (from pytest.ini level) (default 0)

  • rp_hierarchy_dirs = True - Enables hierarchy for tests directories, default False. Doesn’t support ‘xdist’ plugin.

  • rp_hierarchy_dir_path_separator - Path separator to display directories in test hierarchy. In case of empty value current system path separator will be used (os.path.sep)

  • rp_hierarchy_code - Enables hierarchy for inner classes and parametrized tests, default False. Doesn’t support ‘xdist’ plugin.

  • rp_issue_system_url ={issue_id} - issue URL (issue_id will be filled by parameter from pytest mark)

  • rp_issue_id_marks = True - Enables adding marks for issue ids (e.g. “issue:123456”)

  • rp_verify_ssl = True - Verify SSL when connecting to the server

  • rp_mode = DEFAULT - DEBUG or DEFAULT launch mode. DEBUG launches are displayed in a separate tab and not visible to anyone except owner

  • rp_thread_logging - EXPERIMENTAL - Enables support for reporting logs from threads by patching the builtin Thread class. Use with caution.

  • rp_launch_timeout = 86400 - Maximum time to wait for child processes finish, default value: 86400 seconds (1 day)

If you like to override the above parameters from command line, or from CI environment based on your build, then pass - -o "rp_launch_attributes=Smoke Tests" during invocation.


For logging of the test item flow to Report Portal, please, use the python logging handler provided by plugin like bellow: in

import logging
import sys

import pytest

from reportportal_client import RPLogger

def rp_logger():
    logger = logging.getLogger(__name__)
    return logger

in tests:

# In this case only INFO messages will be sent to the Report Portal.
def test_one(rp_logger):"Case1. Step1")
    x = "this""x is: %s", x)
    assert 'h' in x

    # Message with an attachment.
    import subprocess
    free_memory = subprocess.check_output("free -h".split())
        "Case1. Memory consumption",
            "name": "free_memory.txt",
            "data": free_memory,
            "mime": "application/octet-stream",

    # This debug message will not be sent to the Report Portal.
    rp_logger.debug("Case1. Debug message")

Plugin can report doc-strings of tests as descriptions:

def test_one():
    Description of the test case which will be sent to Report Portal

Pytest markers will be attached as attributes to Report Portal items. In the following example attributes ‘linux’ and ‘win32’ will be used:

import pytest

def test_one():

If you don’t want to attach specific markers, list them in rp_ignore_attributes parameter


To run test with Report Portal you must provide ‘–reportportal’ flag:

py.test ./tests --reportportal

Test issue info

Some pytest marks could be used to specify information about skipped or failed test result.

The following mark fields are used to get information about test issue:

  • issue_id - issue id (or list) in tracking system. This id will be added as comment to test fail result. If URL is specified in pytest ini file (see rp_issue_system_url), id will added as link to tracking system.

  • reason - some comment that will be added to test fail description.

  • issue_type - short name of RP issue type that should be assigned to failed or skipped test.


@pytest.mark.issue(issue_id="111111", reason="Some bug", issue_type="PB")
def test():
    assert False

Test internal steps, aka “Nested steps”

To implement Nested steps reporting please follow our guide:

Also there are examples of usage:


If you would like to temporary disable integrations with Report Portal just deactivate pytest_reportportal plugin with command like:

py.test -p no:pytest_reportportal ./tests

Integration with Google analytics

ReportPortal is now supporting integrations with more than 15 test frameworks simultaneously. In order to define the most popular agents and plan the team workload accordingly, we are using Google analytics.

ReportPortal collects information about agent name and its version only. This information is sent to Google Analytics on the launch start. Please help us to make our work effective. If you still want to switch Off Google analytics, please change env variable the way below.
