JUnit-XML based Appium report

Using the terminal, you can create JUnit-XML based reports from Appium with Java and upload them to Test Management.

Executing a Test Case with Appium

You can initiate an Appium project with this git repository. Use this sample code to execute a Test Case.

package appium_bee;

import org.testng.annotations.Test;
import org.openqa.selenium.remote.DesiredCapabilities;
import org.testng.Assert;
import org.testng.annotations.AfterTest;
import org.testng.annotations.BeforeTest;
import org.testng.annotations.Test;
import org.openqa.selenium.By;
import org.openqa.selenium.WebElement ;

import io.appium.java_client.remote.MobileCapabilityType;
import io.appium.java_client.AppiumDriver;

import java.util.List;


public class baseClass {
	 AndroidDriver driver;
	public void setup() throws MalformedURLException, InterruptedException {

		DesiredCapabilities capabilities = new DesiredCapabilities() ;
		capabilities.setCapability(MobileCapabilityType.AUTOMATION_NAME, "Appium");
		capabilities.setCapability(MobileCapabilityType.PLATFORM_NAME, "Android");
		capabilities.setCapability(MobileCapabilityType.PLATFORM_VERSION, "11.0");
		capabilities.setCapability(MobileCapabilityType.DEVICE_NAME, "Device_B");
		capabilities.setCapability(MobileCapabilityType.APP, "/Users/bhavyakarimikonda/git/./../WikipediaSample.apk" );

		capabilities.setCapability("newCommandTimeout", 2000);
		URL url = new URL("http://localhost:4723/wd/hub");
		driver = new AndroidDriver(url, capabilities);
	public void launchApp() {
		WebElement searchSelector = driver.findElement("org.wikipedia.alpha:id/search_container"));;
    public void searchBStack() throws InterruptedException {
	            WebElement searchSelector = driver.findElement("org.wikipedia.alpha:id/search_container"));
	            WebElement insertTextSelector = driver.findElement("org.wikipedia.alpha:id/search_src_text"));
	            List<WebElement> allProductsName = driver.findElements(By.className("android.widget.TextView"));
	            Assert.assertTrue(allProductsName.size() > 0);
	public void teardown(){


Create JUnit-XML test report with Appium

Note: Appium by default generates a JUnit-XML report for each execution. The reports can be found in the test-output folder.

Sample JUnit-XML report generated from Appium in the test-output folder.

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<!-- Generated by org.testng.reporters.JUnitReportReporter -->
<testsuite hostname="<hostname>.local" failures="0" tests="2" name="appiumproject.baseClass" time="4.899" errors="0" timestamp="2023-06-29T19:12:38 IST" skipped="0">
  <testcase classname="appiumproject.baseClass" name="testSearch" time="4.634"/>
  <testcase classname="appiumproject.baseClass" name="launchBrowser" time="0.265"/>
</testsuite> <!-- appiumproject.baseClass -->

Steps to upload the JUnit-XML test report

Open the project directory in the Terminal and load the variables.

export TEST_MANAGEMENT_API_TOKEN="*************28a42"
export JUNIT_XML_FILE_PATH="<Report Path>"
export TEST_RUN_NAME="<Test Run Name"
Note: You can get your TEST_MANAGEMENT_API_TOKEN from the Active API Key section in the Settings of BrowserStack Test Management.

Upload the test report using curl command.

curl -k -X POST \
-F "file_path=@$JUNIT_XML_FILE_PATH" \
-F test_run_name="$TEST_RUN_NAME"
Note: Report upload will take a few seconds to about a minute depending on the size of your test-suite. Do not interrupt the cURL command until you get the response back.

You can also upload JUnit-XML test report with Appium using CI/CD.

Access the test run report from the console generated URL

After your report is successfully uploaded, you see a message similar to the following in your terminal. This message also generates a URL with "url" parameter that you can use to access your automated test run.

{"message":"File uploaded successfully.","url":"<project id>/test-runs/<test run id>","success":true}

View test run report in Test Management

  1. Log in to the BrowserStack Test Management dashboard.
  2. Select the relevant project that has the test report uploaded.
  3. Click Test Runs.
  4. Open the Test Run generated from automation test exectution.
  5. You will find all the test cases with their respective results here.
