Integrating with Jest JS

Brief Overview

This reporter will integrate JestJS with Inflectra's ALM suite. It will create a test run in Spira for each test executed in Jest.

Guide Basics

Unfortunately, this integration will work with SpiraTest/SpiraTeam/SpiraPlan (hereafter refered to as SpiraTest) version 5.0 and above and at least Jest 24.x. If you have an older version, you will need to update to use this reporter.

This guide assumes a basic familiarity with both SpiraTest and the Jest testing framework.

Setting up the integration

Install the integration by running npm i jest-spiratest in the root directory of your tests. Inside your package.json file, add the jest field with the format as shown below. Here is sample package.json.

    "name": "sample",
    "scripts": {
        "test": "jest"
    "jest": {
        "reporters": [
                    "url": "https://doctor/SpiraPlan",
                    "username": "fredbloggs",
                    "token": "{XXXXXXXX-XXXX-XXXX-XXXX-XXXXXXXXXXXX}",
                    "projectId": 1,
                    "releaseId": 1,
                    "testSetId": 1,
                    "testCases": {
                        "default": 20,
                        "storesCorrectly": 21,
                        "javascriptWorks": 16
Fields are required unless otherwise noted.

Field Description
url The root URL of your SpiraTest instance without a '/' at the end
username The username you use to sign into SpiraTest
token Your RSS Token. Found in your profile page as the RSS Token field. You must have RSS Feeds enabled for this to work
projectId The ID of the project you would like the Test Runs to be filed under
releaseId OPTIONAL - Use if you would like to associate created test runs with a release
testSetId OPTIONAL - Use if you would like to associated created test runs with a test set
testCases Must contain the default field within it and, optionally, specific test cases for a given test spec name
default Inside the testCases field, this is the ID of the default test case mapped to a created test run
<test_name> OPTIONAL - Use as many times as you would like to map a the created test run to a particular test case in SpiraTest. Note that capitalization, special characters and spaces are ignored both in testCases and the test declaration

Once you have added the SpiraReporter to jest as described above, you are all set!

Using the SpiraTest Reporter

Actually, you don't do anything different! Just run npm test or however you ran jest before and you should see test runs created in the project you specified!
