export.config = {
reporters: [

channel: process.env.SLACK_CHANNEL || 'Cxxxxxxxxxx',
slackBotToken: process.env.SLACK_BOT_TOKEN || 'xoxb-xxxxxxxxxx-xxxxxx...',
},
}
],
],
};

Use the Web API​

To use the api, you need a scopes like the one below.
chat:write, files:write. See below for more details.

Configuration Example​

// wdio.conf.js
import SlackReporter from "@moroo/wdio-slack-reporter";

export.config = {
reporters: [
[
SlackReporter, {
// Set the Slack Options used web-api.
slackOptions: {
type: 'web-api',
slackBotToken: process.env.SLACK_BOT_TOKEN || "xoxb-xxxxxxxxxx-xxxxxx...",,
channel: process.env.SLACK_CHANNEL || "Cxxxxxxxxxx",
// Set this option to true to attach a screenshot to the failed case.
uploadScreenshotOfFailedCase: true,
// Set this option to true if you want to add thread with details of results to notification of test results posted to Slack.
notifyDetailResultThread: true,
// Set the Filter for detail results. (array is empty or undefined, all filters are applied.)
filterForDetailResults: [
'passed',
'failed',
'pending',
'skipped'
],
// Override the createScreenshotPayload function.
createScreenshotPayload: function (testStats: TestStats, screenshotBuffer: Buffer): FilesUploadArguments {
const payload: FilesUploadArguments = {
// do something...
}
return payload;
},
// Override the createResultDetailPayload function.
createResultDetailPayload: function (runnerStats: RunnerStats, stateCounts: StateCount): ChatPostMessageArguments {
const payload: ChatPostMessageArguments = {
// do something...
}
return payload;
}
},
// Set the Title of Test.
title: 'Slack Reporter Test',
// Set the Test Results URL.
resultsUrl: process.env.JENKINS_URL,
// Set the notification of Test Finished
notifyTestFinishMessage: true,
// Customize Slack Emoji Symbols.
emojiSymbols: {
passed: ':white_check_mark:',
failed: ':x:',
skipped: ':double_vertical_bar:',
pending: ':grey_question:',
start: ':rocket:',
finished: ':checkered_flag:',
watch: ':stopwatch:'
},
// Override the createStartPayload function.
createStartPayload: function (runnerStats: RunnerStats): IncomingWebhookSendArguments {
const payload: IncomingWebhookSendArguments = {
// do something...
}
return payload;
},
// Override the createFailedTestPayload function.
createFailedTestPayload: function (testStats: TestStats): IncomingWebhookSendArguments {
const payload: IncomingWebhookSendArguments = {
// do something...
}
return payload;
},
// Override the createResultPayload function.
createResultPayload: function (runnerStats: RunnerStats, stateCounts: StateCount): IncomingWebhookSendArguments {
const payload: IncomingWebhookSendArguments = {
// do something...
}
return payload;
}
}
],
],
};

Supported API​

getResultsUrl​

type: () => string | undefined

Get the results url.

// getResultsUrl.spec.ts
import SlackReporter from '@moroo/wdio-slack-reporter';

describe('Get the resultsUrl value', function () {
before(function () {
const resultsUrl = SlackReporter.getResultsUrl();
if (resultsUrl) {
// do something...
}
});
it('Do something', function () {
// do something...
});
});

setResultsUrl​

type: (url: string) => void

Set the results url.
(This is useful if the url with test results changes every time.)

// setResultsUrl.spec.ts
import SlackReporter from '@moroo/wdio-slack-reporter';
import { RESULTS_URL } from '../constants';

describe('Set the resultsUrl value', function () {
before(function () {
const resultsUrl = RESULTS_URL + new Date().toISOString();
SlackReporter.setResultsUrl(resultsUrl);
});
it('Do something', function () {
// do something...
});
});

uploadFailedTestScreenshot​

type: (data: string | Buffer) => void

Add a screenshot as a thread to the failed test notification.
(If you are using a webhook this will print a warning and do nothing.)

// terminal console
WARN @moroo/slack-wdio-reporter: Not using web-api or disabled notifyFailedCase or uploadScreenshotOfFailedCase options.
// wdio.conf.js
export.config = {
afterTest: async function (test, context, result) {
if (result.error) {
const result = await browser.takeScreenshot();
SlackReporter.uploadFailedTestScreenshot(result);
}
}
}

postMessage​

type: (payload: ChatPostMessageArguments) => Promise<WebAPICallResult>

Post a message to Slack.
(If you are using a webhook this will throw an error.)

// terminal console
ERROR @moroo/slack-wdio-reporter: Not using web-api.
// post.spec.ts
import SlackReporter, {
ChatPostMessageArguments,
WebAPICallResult,
} from '@moroo/wdio-slack-reporter';

describe('Post Function Test', function () {
it('Post a message', async function () {
const payload: ChatPostMessageArguments = {
// do something...
};
const result: WebAPICallResult = await SlackReporter.post(payload);
});
});

upload​

type: (payload: FilesUploadArguments) => Promise<WebAPICallResult>

Upload a file to Slack.
(If you are using a webhook this will throw an error.)

// terminal console
ERROR @moroo/slack-wdio-reporter: Not using web-api.
// upload.spec.ts
import SlackReporter, {
FilesUploadArguments,
WebAPICallResult,
} from '@moroo/wdio-slack-reporter';

describe('Upload Function Test', function () {
it('Upload a files', async function () {
const payload: FilesUploadArguments = {
// do something...
};
const result: WebAPICallResult = await SlackReporter.upload(payload);
});
});

send​

type: (payload: IncomingWebhookSendArguments) => Promise<IncomingWebhookResult>

Send a message to Slack.
(If you are using a web-api this will throw an error.)

// terminal console
ERROR @moroo/slack-wdio-reporter: Not using webhook.
// send.spec.ts

IncomingWebhookSendArguments,
IncomingWebhookResult,
} from '@moroo/wdio-slack-reporter';

describe('Sand Function Test', function () {
it('Send a message', async function () {
const payload: IncomingWebhookSendArguments = {
// do something...
};
const result: IncomingWebhookResult = await SlackReporter.send(payload);
});
});

Add Screenshot​

If you want to add a screenshot as a thread to the failed test notification, added the uploadFailedTestScreenshot function after taking the screenshot.

// wdio.conf.js
export.config = {
afterTest: async function (test, context, result) {
if (result.error) {
const result = await browser.takeScreenshot();
SlackReporter.uploadFailedTestScreenshot(result);
}
}
}

Known Issues​

Unsynced​

If the following error occurs, set reporterSyncInterval, reporterSyncTimeout in wdio.conf.js.

ERROR @wdio/runner: Error: Some reporters are still unsynced: SlackReporter
//wdio.conf.js
export.config = {
//
// Determines in which interval the reporter should check if they are synchronized if they report their logs asynchronously (e.g. if logs are streamed to a 3rd party vendor).
reporterSyncInterval: 500,
// Determines the maximum time reporters have to finish uploading all their logs until an error is being thrown by the testrunner.
reporterSyncTimeout: 20000,
}

Jasmine Option - expectationResultHandler​

Adding the uploadFailedTestScreenshot function here doesn't work either.
This is because the function works after every test, so the current test is unknown.

// wdio.conf.js
export.config = {
jasmineOpts: {
// Jasmine default timeout
defaultTimeoutInterval: 60000,
//
// The Jasmine framework allows interception of each assertion in order to log the state of the application
// or website depending on the result. For example, it is pretty handy to take a screenshot every time
// an assertion fails.
expectationResultHandler: function (passed, assertion) {
if (passed) {
return;
}
/*

[x] const result = await browser.takeScreenshot();
[x] SlackReporter.uploadFailedTestScreenshot(result);
*/
},
},

// Add it here.
afterTest: async function (test, context, result) {
if (result.error) {
const result = await browser.takeScreenshot();
SlackReporter.uploadFailedTestScreenshot(result);
}
}
}
