Basic text reporter for Newman


Run npm install --save newman-reporter-text


In order to use this custom reporter, simply add 'text' to the list of reporters.


This text reporter also accepts three options.
  • export: If you'd like newman to output the results of the collection to a file, enter the file name under the 'export' property.
  • cli: If you'd like newman to output the results of the collection to stdout, set the 'cli' property as 'true' (string not bool).
  • rolling: If you'd like newman to output the results to a new file based on the current day set this property to 'true'

Note that you do not have to do require('newman-reporter-text') anywhere as newman will automatically require the package when the collection is run.{
    collection: require('./tests.postman_collection.json'),
    reporters: 'text',
    reporter: {
        'text': {
            // Take output and save it to file
            export: `./logs/${startTime}.txt`,
            // Output to rolling file based on current day
            rolling: 'ture',
            // Output the results to stdout
            cli: 'true'
}, function (err) {
    if (err) { throw err; }

newman run ./tests.postman_collection.json --reporter text --reporter-text-export './logs/output.txt' --reporter-text-rolling 'true' --reporter-text-cli 'true'
