Python collectors

To use Test Analytics with your Python projects use the buildkite-test-collector package with pytest.

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

pytest collector

pytest is a testing framework for Python. If you're already using pytest, then you can install buildkite-test-collector to collect test results into your Test Analytics dashboard.

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

To get started with buildkite-test-collector:

  1. In your CI environment, set the BUILDKITE_ANALYTICS_TOKEN environment variable securely to your Buildkite Test Analytics API token.

  2. Add buildkite-test-collector to your list of dependencies. Some examples:

    • If you're using a requirements.txt file, add buildkite-test-collector on a new line.

    • If you're using a file, add buildkite-test-collector to the extras_require argument, like this:

      extras_require={"dev": ["pytest", "  buildkite-test-collector"]}
    • If you're using Pipenv, run pipenv install --dev buildkite-test-collector.

    If you're using another tool, see your dependency management system's documentation for help.

  3. Commit and push your changes:

    $ git add .
    $ git commit -m "Install and set up Buildkite Test Analytics"
    $ git push

Once you're done, in your Test Analytics dashboard, you'll see analytics of test executions on all branches that include this code.

If you don't see branch names, build numbers, or commit hashes in Test Analytics, then read CI environments to learn more about exporting your environment to the collector.
