Readme

newman-reporter-htmlfull
HTML reporter for Newman that provides the information about the collection run in HTML format. This needs to be used in conjunction with Newman so that it can recognize HTML reporting options.
Different from newman-reporter-html is not aggregating results for executions by using the cursor reference which is unique for each execution instead of the item id.

Please use newman-reporter-html if you want aggregated results. You can use the templates which are based on the original templates including the changes, see Templates > Aggregated here below.

Install

The installation should be global if newman is installed globally, local otherwise. (Replace -g from the command below with -S for a local installation)

$ npm install -g newman-reporter-htmlfull

Usage

The examples provided in the usage are for showing the differences between newman-reporter-html and this project included the changes to the original templates.
Iteration (``-n 2``) is used to show the difference between aggregated and full reports.
HTML examples can be found here.

Options

With Newman CLI

| CLI Option | Description | |-------------|-------------------| | --reporter-htmlfull-export <path> | Specify a path where the output HTML file will be written to disk. If not specified, the file will be written to newman/ in the current working directory. | | --reporter-htmlfull-template <path> | Specify a path to the custom template which will be used to render the HTML report. This option depends on --reporter htmlfull and --reporter-htmlfull-export being present in the run command. If this option is not specified, the default template is used |
Custom templates (currently handlebars only) can be passed to the HTML reporter via --reporter-htmlfull-template <path> with --reporters htmlfull and --reporter-htmlfull-export. The default template is used in all other cases.

With Newman as a Library

The CLI functionality is available for programmatic use as well.
const newman = require('newman');

newman.run({
    collection: require('https://www.getpostman.com/collections/631643-f695cab7-6878-eb55-7943-ad88e1ccfd65-JsLv'), // can also provide a URL or path to a local JSON file.
    reporters: 'htmlfull',
    reporter: {
        htmlfull: {
            export: './examples/full/htmlreqres.html', // If not specified, the file will be written to `newman/` in the current working directory.
            template: './templates/full/htmlreqres.hbs' // optional, this will be picked up relative to the directory that Newman runs in.
        }
    },
	iterationCount: 2
}, function (err) {
	if (err) { throw err; }
    console.log('collection run complete!');
});

Troubleshooting

Reporter not found

The reporter and newman must be installed at the same level, the installation should be global if newman is installed globally, local otherwise.

Getting different HTML output

You are most probably getting in-built reporter output used in older versions of newman, Please check the newman's compatibility section above.
If you are facing any other problem, please check the open issues or create new.
