In a world where teams are releasing product updates faster than ever before, new challenges have emerged. Quality assurance and testing have become a significant bottleneck for these teams due to the time it takes to run and maintain reliable, effective tests. However, by integrating automated testing directly into CI/CD, dev teams can adequately support rapid release cycles without sacrificing application quality.

Jenkins is an open-source continuous integration and deployment tool that ties automated builds, tests, and releases together in a single workflow. The Jenkins mabl integration plugin makes it easy for mabl customers to execute mabl tests as part of their CI/CD pipeline and to provide a test report of the executed tests inside Jenkins.

Mabl and Jenkins together accelerate development by:

+ Automatically testing builds for visual, functional and performance regressions on every deployment

+ Enabling your CI/CD workflow to automatically make informed decisions based on individual test output – decisions that would otherwise have to be done manually

+ View mabl test results directly in Jenkins

 

Jenkins Build Step

 

Value of integrating automated testing into your development workflow:

devops-01
Enable faster, more efficient management of your entire software delivery pipeline
bug
Reduce cost of issue resolution by catching them earlier in the development lifecycle
fast-1
Reduce the time developers would have to spend on tedious server configuration and bug fixing

The mabl integration for Jenkins is a native plugin that makes it easy to incorporate reliable end-to-end tests as part of your build and deployment process. To start testing every build, simply add a “run mabl tests” step in Jenkins in just a few clicks. You can run mabl inside Jenkins Pipeline and Freestyle jobs and have control over which tests run on deployment using test plan labels.
