Jenkins integration

Integration Details
Jenkins

The integration with ALM is provided as part of the Application Automation Tools plugin.

For a list of plugins that must be installed on the Jenkins server to enable ALM integration, see Jenkins integrations.

ALM introduced a post-build action for the Micro Focus Application Automation Tools plugin (short for plugin): Upload test result to ALM using field mapping. This post-build action allows you to upload test results from an XML file to ALM. The test results can come from tests running in any frameworks or tools, not limited to JUnit, NUnit, or TestNG. After the upload, the plugin will update or create tests, test sets, test instances, and test runs of corresponding types in ALM. See Integrate with external tests.
