WDIO Allure Reporter
A WebdriverIO reporter plugin to create Allure Test Reports.

Allure Reporter Example


The easiest way is to include @wdio/allure-reporter as a devDependency in your package.json.
  "devDependencies": {
    "@wdio/allure-reporter": "^7.0.0"

You can simply do it by:
npm install @wdio/allure-reporter --save-dev


Configure the output directory in your wdio.conf.js file:
exports.config = {
    // ...
    reporters: [['allure', {
        outputDir: 'allure-results',
        disableWebdriverStepsReporting: true,
        disableWebdriverScreenshotsReporting: true,
    // ...
  • outputDir defaults to ./allure-results. After a test run is complete, you will find that this directory has been populated with an .xml file for each spec, plus a number of .txt and .png files and other attachments.
  • disableWebdriverStepsReporting - optional parameter(false by default), in order to log only custom steps to the reporter.
  • issueLinkTemplate - optional parameter, in order to specify the issue link pattern. Reporter will replace {} placeholder with value specified in addIssue(value) call parameter. Example https://example.org/issue/{}
  • tmsLinkTemplate - optional parameter, in order to specify the tms link pattern. Reporter will replace {} placeholder with value specified in addTestId(value) call parameter. Example https://example.org/tms/{}
  • disableWebdriverScreenshotsReporting - optional parameter(false by default), in order to not attach screenshots to the reporter.
  • useCucumberStepReporter - optional parameter (false by default), set it to true in order to change the report hierarchy when using cucumber. Try it for yourself and see how it looks.
  • disableMochaHooks - optional parameter (false by default), set it to true in order to not fetch the before/after stacktrace/screenshot/result hooks into the Allure Reporter.
  • addConsoleLogs - optional parameter(false by default), set to true in order to attach console logs from step to the reporter.

Supported Allure API

  • addLabel(name, value) - assign a custom label to test
  • addFeature(featureName) – assign feature to test
  • addStory(storyName) – assign user story to test
  • addSeverity(value) – assign severity to test, accepts one of these values: blocker, critical, normal, minor, trivial
  • addIssue(value) – assign issue id to test
  • addTestId(value) – assign TMS test id to test
  • addEnvironment(name, value) – save environment value
  • addAttachment(name, content, [type]) – save attachment to test.
* `name` (*String*) - attachment name.
* `content` – attachment content.
* `type` (*String*, optional) – attachment MIME-type, `text/plain` by default
  • addArgument(name, value) - add additional argument to test
  • addDescription(description, [type]) – add description to test.
* `description` (*String*) - description of the test.
* `type` (*String*, optional) – description type, `text` by default. Values ['text', 'html','markdown']
  • addStep(title, [{content, name = 'attachment'}], [status]) - add step to test.
* `title` (*String*) - name of the step.
* `content` (*String*, optional) - step attachment
* `name` (*String*, optional) - step attachment name, `attachment` by default.
* `status` (*String*, optional) - step status, `passed` by default. Must be "failed", "passed" or "broken"
  • startStep(title) - start with a step
* `title` (*String*) - name of the step.
  • endStep(status) - end with a step
* `status` (*String*, optional) - step status, `passed` by default. Must be "failed", "passed" or "broken"


Allure Api can be accessed using:
const allureReporter = require('@wdio/allure-reporter').default

import allureReporter from '@wdio/allure-reporter'

Mocha example
describe('Suite', () => {
    it('Case', () => {

Cucumber example:
Given('I include feature and story name', () => {

Displaying the report

The results can be consumed by any of the reporting tools offered by Allure. For example:


Install the Allure command-line tool, and process the results directory:
allure generate [allure_output_dir] && allure open

This will generate a report (by default in ./allure-report), and open it in your browser.

Autogenerate Report

You can also auto generate the report by using the Allure command line tool programmatically. To do so install the package in your project by:
npm i allure-commandline

Then add or extend your onComplete hook or create a custom service for this:
// wdio.conf.js
const allure = require('allure-commandline')

exports.config = {
    // ...
    onComplete: function() {
        const reportError = new Error('Could not generate Allure report')
        const generation = allure(['generate', 'allure-results', '--clean'])
        return new Promise((resolve, reject) => {
            const generationTimeout = setTimeout(
                () => reject(reportError),

            generation.on('exit', function(exitCode) {

                if (exitCode !== 0) {
                    return reject(reportError)

                console.log('Allure report successfully generated')
    // ...


Install and configure the Allure Jenkins plugin

Add Screenshots

Screenshots can be attached to the report by using the takeScreenshot function from WebDriverIO in the afterStep hook. First set disableWebdriverScreenshotsReporting: false in reporter options, then add in afterStep hook:
```js title="wdio.conf.js" afterStep: async function (step, scenario, { error, duration, passed }, context) { if (error) {
await browser.takeScreenshot();
} } ```
As shown in the example above, when this function is called, a screenshot image will be attached to the allure report.
