Elixir collectors

To use Test Analytics with your Elixir projects use :github: test_collector_elixir with ExUnit.

You can also upload test results by importing JSON or JUnit XML.


ExUnit is a Elixir unit test library.

Before you start, make sure ExUnit runs with access to CI environment variables.

  1. Create a test suite and copy the API token that it gives you.

  2. Add buildkite_test_collector to your list of dependencies in mix.exs:

    def deps do
        {:buildkite_test_collector, "~> 0.1.0", only: [:test]}
  3. Set up your API token:

    In your config/test.exs (or other environment configuration as appropriate) add the analytics API token. We suggest that you retrieve the token from the environment, and configure your CI environment accordingly (for example using secrets).

    import Config
    config :buildkite_test_collector,
      api_key: System.get_env("BUILDKITE_ANALYTICS_TOKEN")
  4. Add BuildkiteTestCollectorFormatter to your ExUnit configuration in test/test_helper.exs:

    ExUnit.configure formatters: [BuildkiteTestCollector.Formatter, ExUnit.CLIFormatter]
  5. Run your tests like normal:

    Note that we attempt to detect the presence of several common CI environments. However if this fails you can set the CI environment variable to any value and it will work.

    $ mix test
    Finished in 0.01 seconds (0.003s on load, 0.004s on tests)
    3 tests, 0 failures
    Randomized with seed 12345
  6. Verify that it works. If all is well, you should see the test run in the test analytics section of the Buildkite dashboard.
