In my Test Automation, when we execute the TestNg Suite XML then whenever any test case fails the Jenkins Build also fails.

But I require that the TestNG report shows the proper result, either Pass or Fail, and at same time the jenkins build should show success because all test case executed.

I understand that TestNG throws either a hard or soft Assertion on any test case failure. And I guess due to that exception the whole jenkins build also fails.

  • It's hard to understand exactly what the question is Mar 11 '16 at 11:47
  • I think the question boils down to this: How do I prevent failures in a TestNG suite from failing my entire Jenkins job?. @user3591670 Exactly how do you run the TestNG suite? Do you use the "Invoke Ant" build step, or something else? If the latter, please be specific.

  • Could you try re-wording your question? include what you want to happen and what is stopping that from happening.

    A tad cheeky remark: You may want to rethink your test-cases. There is a reason it works like this: Failed test cases means the build does not work and is broken. Perhaps you need a different way to determine all your test cases are doing their proper job?

  • Requirement is bit tricky for me. Because when I drill down and found that I need to resolve my problem from TestNG prespective instead of Jenkins. Thanks for feedback as I am working towards solving it at my automation framework level. May 2 '16 at 3:27

If this is maven build, try adding  


into MAVEN_OPTS, advance button in build section of jenkins
