    TestRail v6.7 NPM NPM

    Jest to TestRail Reporter

    This package allows you to use Jest and report your test results to TestRail.
    Please use with combination with the default reporter


    npm i testrail-jest-reporter --save-dev

    Jest configurations

    As per Jest's documentation, the Reporter must be specified in the jest-config.js or package.json file as part of the reporters array.

    • This file should be created in your project's root folder.
    • Parameter is defined as 'project_id', which is the id of your project on TestRail.
    • Specify the TestRail server url as parameter 'baseUrl' (recommended).
    • Specify the TestRail Milestone name as parameter 'milestone' (recommended).
    • Specify the TestRail suite mode id as parameter 'suite_mode' (recommended). If that parameter is not specified, the Reporter will get this automatically.

      single repository for all cases - suite_mode:1
      single repository with baseline support - suite_mode:2
      multiple test suites to manage cases - suite_mode:3

    • There is no 'pending' or 'skipped' test result status in the TestRail results default
      statuses. You can add your custom status to the TestRail and specify it id as parameter
      '"statuses":{"pending": "7"}' (recommended).


    // this is the part of the jest-config.js
    module.exports = {
      reporters: [
            { project_id: 1, 
                baseUrl: 'http://localhost', 
                milestone: '<milestone_name>',
                suite_mode: 3,
                statuses: {pending: 7}
    // this is the "jest" part of the package.json
      "jest": {
        "reporters": [
                    "project_id": "1",
                    "baseUrl": 'http://localhost',
                    "milestone": '<milestone_name>',
                    "suite_mode": "3",
                    "statuses": {"pending": "7"}

    TestRail configurations

    The testrail.conf.js file needs to be created in your project's root folder.

    • It must contain your TestRail username (email address) and password (or API key).
    • This file needs to have all 2 parameters correctly filled.
    • It may contain the URL of your TestRail server as a baseUrl parameter, or
      it can be specified in Jest configuration
    • You can specify custom regex expresion (default: /[C][?\d]{3,6}/gm)

    Use TestRail Milestone

    The first version of the Reporter requires you to use a milestone.

    • Use TestRail Milestone to versioning your tests.
    • testrail.conf.js file needs to have Milestone name filled. Or
      it can be specified in Jest configuration


    module.exports = {
        'baseUrl': 'http://localhost',
        'user': 'user@example.com',
        'pass': 'some-password',
        'milestone': '<milestone_name>',
        'regex': /[C][?\d]{3,6}/gm
    Important: If you use a public repository, please, secure your sensitive data.

    Enable TestRail API

    In order to use TestRail API, it needs to be enabled by an administrator
    in your own TestRail Site Settings. Also, if you want to use API authentication instead of your password,
    enable session authentication for API in the TestRail Site Settings,
    and add an API key in your User settings (This is recommended).

    Add TestRail tests Runs

    You can add a TestRail tests Runs or tests Plan with all tests you want to automate.
    If you don't, the Reporter will publish Jest tests results into the new TestRail test Run.
    Each time the Jest runs tests the Reporter parse all TestRail tests Plans
    and tests Runs of the Milestone to collect testcases. The Reporter collects only unique testcases,
    if you have several tests Runs with one testcase then The Reporter push the test result only to one of that Runs.

    Example tests

    The Case ID from TestRail may be added to it() description each test result you want to push to TestRail. You can specify several cases in one it() description.


    describe("Tests suite", () => {
      // "C123" this is Case ID from Test Rail
      it("C123 test success", async () => {
      it("Test fail C124 C125", async () => {
      xit("Another success test", async () => {

    Note: The Case ID is a unique and permanent ID of every test case (e.g. C125), and shouldn't be confused with a Test Case ID,
    which is assigned to a test case when a new run is created (e.g. T325).

    Note: The first and second it() test result will be reported, and the last - not.
