Getting started

Aviator fetches the test results by using a custom plugin. Currently, we support CircleCI and Buildkite integrations. For both plugins, you need to specify two things: AVIATOR_API_TOKEN to associate the data with your account and the files associated with the test artifacts.


Step 1: Configure the API token in the environment variables section as:


Step 2: Add a step after your test execution step.

version: 2.1
  aviator-upload-orb: aviator/aviator-upload-orb@0.0.3
      - image: cimg/python:3.7
      - checkout
      - run:
          name: Run tests and upload results
          command: |
            python -m pytest -vv --junitxml="test_results/output.xml"
      - aviator-upload-orb/upload:
          assets: "test_results/*.xml"
      - test

Once this is done, you should be able to verify that the artifacts are getting uploaded by looking at your CircleCI. You should see something like:

  % Total    % Received % Xferd  Average Speed   Time    Time     Time  Current
                                 Dload  Upload   Total   Spent    Left  Speed
100  5103  100    20  100  5083     36   9295 --:--:-- --:--:-- --:--:--  9329
  "status": 200
CircleCI received exit code 0

The aviator-upload-orb used above is available publicly at aviator-co/circleci-upload-orb.


To install Aviator on Buildkite, please use the Buildkite plugin defined here.

Step 1: Configure the API token as a secret in Buildkite. You can set this in an environment hook on Buildkite agents or use your preferred secret storage. Read more about managing Buildkite secrets.


Step 2: Now you can either upload the artifacts from the same step as the test run or create a separate step:

Option A: From build step

To upload all files from an XML folder from a build step:

  - label: "🔨 Test"
    command: "make test"
      - aviator#v1.0.0:
          files: "test/junit-*.xml"

Option B: Using build artifacts

You can also use build artifacts generated in a previous step:

  # Run tests and upload 
  - label: "🔨 Test"
    command: "make test --junit=tests-N.xml"
    artifact_paths: "tests-*.xml"

  - wait

  - label: ":plane: Aviator"command: buildkite-agent artifact download tests-*.xml
      - aviator#v1.0.0:
          files: "tests-*.xml"

GitHub Actions

Step 1: Configure the API token as a secret in your repository.

Step 2: Add the GitHub Action as a step in your job. Make sure to specify the inputs assets and aviator_api_token. Add the conditional if: success() || failure() in the step to ensure that the test files are always uploaded, regardless of test failure/success.

name: Run tests and upload results

on: [push]

    name: Test and Upload
    runs-on: ubuntu-latest

    - name: Checkout
      uses: actions/checkout@v3
    - name: Set up Python 3.7
      uses: actions/setup-python@v1
        python-version: 3.7
    - name: Install dependencies and run test
      run: |
        pip install pytest
        python -m pytest -vv --junitxml="test_results/output.xml"
    - name: Upload files with github action
      if: success() || failure()
      uses: aviator-co/upload-action@v0.1.1
        assets: test_results/output.xml
        aviator_api_token: ${{ secrets.AVIATOR_API_TOKEN }}

The GitHub action is available publicly at aviator-co/upload-action. You can also find it on the GitHub Marketplace.
