Allure RSpec configuration

To customize behavior of the Allure RSpec adapter:

  1. Create or edit a helper file to run at the beginning of each RSpec run, e.g., spec/spec_helper.rb.

  2. In the helper file, require the allure-rspec module and run the AllureRspec.configure() function. The function yields a block with single argument config, in which you can modify various configuration parameters.

    Ruby
    require 'allure-rspec' AllureRspec.configure do |config| config.results_directory = 'allure-results' config.clean_results_directory = true config.ignored_tags = [:retry, :retry_wait] end
  3. In the project's .rspec file, add a --require directive for running the helper file, for example:

    Text
    --format AllureRspecFormatter --require spec_helper

results_directory

Path to the directory where Allure RSpec will save the test results, see How it works. If the directory does not exist, it will be created. Defaults to “reports/allure-results”.

Ruby
require 'allure-rspec' AllureRspec.configure do |config| config.results_directory = 'allure-results' end

clean_results_directory

If set to true, the results directory will be cleaned before generating new test results.

By default, the existing data is kept intact, which allows combining results of multiple test runs into a single test report.

Ruby
require 'allure-rspec' AllureRspec.configure do |config| config.clean_results_directory = true end

issue_tag, tms_tag

The names of the RSpec metadata keys that will be used to add issue links and TMS links to the test result. Default to “issue” and “tms”.

Ruby
require 'allure-rspec' AllureRspec.configure do |config| config.issue_tag = 'bug' config.tms_tag = 'test' end

See also: link_issue_pattern and link_tms_pattern.

severity_tag

The name of the RSpec metadata key that will be used to specify a test's severity. Defaults to “severity”.

Ruby
require 'allure-rspec' AllureRspec.configure do |config| config.severity_tag = 'priority' end

epic_tag, feature_tag, story_tag

The names of the RSpec metadata keys that will be used to specify a test's location in the behavior-based hierarchy. Default to “epic”, “feature” and “story”.

Ruby
require 'allure-rspec' AllureRspec.configure do |config| config.epic_tag = 'theme' config.feature_tag = 'functionality' config.story_tag = 'task' end

ignored_tags

The names of tags that should not be processed when adding tags via RSpec metadata. Use this to exclude tags that you set for purposes unrelated to Allure Report, e.g., for other RSpec plugins.

Note that even when a tag is ignored, you still will be able to add it to the test result using the Allure.tag() function.

Ruby
require 'allure-rspec' AllureRspec.configure do |config| config.ignored_tags = [:retry, :retry_wait] end

logger, logging_level

Configure the logger to which Allure RSpec will send messages about the beginning and end of each test or test step.

Ruby
require 'allure-rspec' AllureRspec.configure do |config| config.logger = Logger.new($stdout, Logger::DEBUG) config.logging_level = Logger::INFO end

Define templates that can be used to construct full URLs from short identifiers, see reference. The pattern must contain {} at the position where the identifier should be placed.

Ruby
require 'allure-rspec' AllureRspec.configure do |config| config.link_issue_pattern = 'https://issues.example.org/{}' config.link_tms_pattern = 'https://tms.example.org/{}' end

See also: issue_tag and tms_tag.

environment_properties

Key-value pairs that will be displayed on the report's main page, see Environment information.

Ruby
require 'allure-rspec' AllureRspec.configure do |config| config.environment_properties = { os_platform: RbConfig::CONFIG['host_os'], ruby_version: RUBY_VERSION, } end

categories

Path to the categories file. Allure RSpec will copy this file to the result directory, so that it can be used for analyzing the test results in the report.

Ruby
require 'allure-rspec' AllureRspec.configure do |config| config.categories = File.new("my_custom_categories.json") end
