To install pytest plugin execute next command in a terminal:

.. code-block:: bash

    pip install pytest-reportportal


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

.. code-block:: bash

py.test -c config.cfg

The :code:pytest.ini file should have next mandatory fields:

  • :code:rp_uuid - value could be found in the User Profile section
  • :code:rp_project - name of project in Report Potal
  • :code:rp_endpoint - address of Report Portal Server

Example of :code:pytest.ini:

.. code-block:: text

rp_uuid = fb586627-32be-47dd-93c1-678873458a5f
rp_endpoint =
rp_project = user_personal
rp_launch = AnyLaunchName
rp_launch_tags = 'PyTest' 'Smoke'
rp_launch_description = 'Smoke test'
rp_ignore_errors = True
rp_ignore_tags = 'xfail' 'usefixture'

The following parameters are optional:

  • :code:rp_launch = AnyLaunchName - launch name (could be overridden by pytest --rp-launch option, default value is 'Pytest Launch')

  • :code:rp_launch_tags = 'PyTest' 'Smoke' - list of tags for launch

  • :code:rp_tests_tags = 'PyTest' 'Smoke' - list of tags that will be added for each item in the launch

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

  • :code:rp_log_batch_size = 20 - size of batch log request

  • :code:rp_ignore_errors = True - Ignore Report Portal errors (exit otherwise)

  • :code:rp_ignore_tags = 'xfail' 'usefixture' - Ignore specified pytest markers

  • :code:rp_hierarchy_dirs = True - Enables hierarchy for tests directories, default False. Doesn't support 'xdist' plugin.

  • :code:rp_hierarchy_module = True - Enables hierarchy for module, default True. Doesn't support 'xdist' plugin.

  • :code:rp_hierarchy_class = True - Enables hierarchy for class, default True. Doesn't support 'xdist' plugin.

  • :code:rp_hierarchy_parametrize = True - Enables hierarchy parametrized tests, default False. Doesn't support 'xdist' plugin.

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

  • :code:rp_issue_marks = 'xfail' 'issue' - Pytest marks that could be used to get issue information (id, type, reason)

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

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

  • :code:rp_display_suite_test_file = True In case of True, include the suite's relative file path in the launch name as a convention of "<RELATIVE_FILE_PATH>::<SUITE_NAME>". In case of False, set the launch name to be the suite name only - this flag is relevant only when "rp_hierarchy_module" flag is set to False

If you like to override the above parameters from command line, or from CI environment based on your build, then pass

  • :code:-o "rp_launch_tags=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:

.. code-block:: python

    def rp_logger(request):
        import logging
        logger = logging.getLogger(__name__)
        # Create handler for Report Portal if the service has been
        # configured and started.
        if hasattr(request.node.config, 'py_test_service'):
            # Import Report Portal logger and handler to the test module.
            from pytest_reportportal import RPLogger, RPLogHandler
            rp_handler = RPLogHandler(request.node.config.py_test_service)
            import sys
            rp_handler = logging.StreamHandler(sys.stdout)
        # Set INFO level for Report Portal handler.
        return logger

in tests:

.. code-block:: python

    # 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 :code:`descriptions`:

.. code-block:: python

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

Pytest markers will be attached as :code:`tags` to Report Portal items.
In the following example tags 'linux' and 'win32' will be used:

.. code-block:: python

    import pytest

    def test_one():

If you don't want to attach specific markers, list them in :code:`rp_ignore_tags` parameter


To run test with Report Portal you must provide '--reportportal' flag:

.. code-block:: bash

py.test ./tests --reportportal

Test issue info

Some pytest marks could be used to specify information about skipped or failed test result.
List of this marks should be specified in pytest ini file (see :code:`rp_issue_marks`).

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

- :code:`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 :code:`rp_issue_system_url`), id will added as link to tracking system.
- :code:`reason` - some comment that will be added to test fail description.
- :code:`issue_type` - short name of RP issue type that should be assigned to failed or skipped test.


.. code-block:: python

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

Send attachement (screenshots)


In case you have connectivity issues (or similar problems) with Report Portal, it's possible to ignore exceptions raised by :code:pytest_reportportal plugin. For this, please, add following option to :code:pytest.ini configuration file.

.. code-block:: text

rp_ignore_errors = True

With option above all exceptions raised by Report Portal will be printed out to stderr without causing test failures.

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

.. code-block:: bash

py.test -p no:pytest_reportportal ./tests
