I know this is the most common question but sorry I am posting this again as I tried all the solutions but couldn't solve the issue,

Problem: I am unable to run my cucumber tests through maven and Jenkins

Command i am using:

mvn clean -Dcucumber.options="--@tags @tags" -Dbrowser=REMOTE_CHROME -Denv={env}
  1. feature files in src/test/resources
  2. steps and Runner in src/test/java

not sure what to include in pom - I have info.cukes, can some one please help if hooks is really needed to run the tests through maven or Jenkins

or is it problem with the project structure


    plugin = {"pretty"},
    features = {"src/test/resources"},
    tags = {"@regression,@add-documents,@add-payment"})
  public class RunRegressionTest {


maven Result:

mvn clean means you're executing the clean phase of maven which would not run any tests. You should probably try test or verify, e.g. mvn clean verify. More to read: https://maven.apache.org/guides/introduction/introduction-to-the-lifecycle.html

  • I tried with mvn clean verify and mvn clean test it didnt help, it says build success with tests run: 0 Feb 9, 2018 at 10:16
  • What other errors/warnings you are getting after 'mvn clean verify'. Feb 9, 2018 at 10:33
  • i dont get any warning or error, i see build is success and tests run are 0 Feb 9, 2018 at 14:25

    @LaxmiMaddali have you added the dependency of Maven and Maven surefire plugin in your pom.xml. Check that if those are not included add in pom.xml and save then retry it. You can also refer this link for the configuration example: guru99.com/maven-jenkins-with-selenium-complete-tutorial.html
