JUnit Reporter

The JUnit reporter helps you to create sophisticated reports for your CI server. To use it just install it from NPM:

1
$ npm install wdio-junit-reporter --save-dev

Then add it to the reporters array in your wdio.conf.js and define the directory where the xml files should get stored:

1

4
5
6

8
9

11
// wdio.conf.js
module.exports = {
// ...
reporters: ['spec', 'junit'],
reporterOptions: {
junit: {
outputDir: './'
}
},
// ...
};

WebdriverIO will create for each instance a single report file. The XML will contain all necessary information you need to debug your test:
