What format of test results CAT offers out-of-the-box?
CAT can produce outputs in these formats:
|json||further automation using your favourite scripting language||at the end|
|xlsx||sharing test results with business users or developers||at the end|
|junit||visualization of results in automation pipelines (Azure DevOps, GitLab, …)||at the end|
|trx||visualization of results in automation pipelines (Azure DevOps, …)||at the end|
|yaml||further automation, troubleshooting||at the end|
|sqlserver||visualize tests results in your reporting platform||after each test|
|oracle||visualize tests results in your reporting platform||after each test|
Because CAT test are usualy run in multiple threads, the “file” otputs are generetad after all the tests are executed. The database outputs on the other hand insert a row about a finished test immediately after the test is executed. Take this into consideration if you have long running test suites - with database based outputs you will have at least some results i case you e.g., need to kill the process.
