Test Suites & Reports

Running multiple tests

Maestro can run a suite of tests and generate a test report at the end.
To run a suite, point maestro test to a folder that contains the flows
maestro test myFolderWtihTests/
Maestro will run every flow from the directory excluding subfolders. The command will complete successfully if and only if all the flows have completed successfully.

Generating reports

To generate a report, add a --format parameter to a test command:
maestro test --format junit myFolderWithTests/
Or if you are using Maestro Cloud:
maestro cloud --format junit myFolderWithTests/
Once execution completes, the report will be stored in a report.xml file in a JUnit-compatible format that is supported by most platforms.

Supported formats

  • junit - JUnit XML format

Additional options

  • --output {file} allows to override the report filename

Controlling what tests to include

There are multiple mechanisms to control what flows to run when running a test suite.


Flow tags are covered extensively in the following section

Inclusion Patterns

By default, when running a test suite only flows from the top level of a given directory will be executed. Consider the following folder structure:
When running a test or cloud command on a workspace folder, only flowA.yaml will be executed by default (though it is still able to refer to subFolder/flowB.yaml and subFolder/subSubFolder/flowC.yaml using runFlow command).
This behaviour can be customised by using inclusion patterns. To do that, update your config.yaml (create the file if missing) as following:
- "*" # the default behaviour
- "subFolder/*"
In such case, both flowA and flowB will be included into the test suite but not flowC.
Tests can also be included recursively:
- "**"
In this example, all flows A, B and C will be included into the test suite.

Deterministic ordering

We discourage usage of deterministic ordering as this will block you from parallelising test execution.
This option is not supported for Maestro Cloud tests. All tests in a suite are going to be executed in parallel regardless of this setting.
Normally, tests in a suite are executed in a non-deterministic order. In cases where a fixed order of execution is required, you can force your tests to run in alphabetical order. Update your config.yaml (or create the file if missing) to enable this behaviour:
deterministicOrder: true
